We are not here to decide for you.
If you have any concerns about D3000 then ask away.
Otherwise just buy it and enjoy taking brilliant photos!
I don't know what I am talking about; it's getting late
you are right... buying a DSLR is more than just buying the camera body.
But TS seems to have decided on the D3000 after comparing several competitors... so... I guess that's that.
edit: I still see many tourists with DSLR + kit lens only, so the saying "DSLR = system" may not necessarily hold true all the time.
i don't know much bout d3000, but i remembered coming across this review:
i don't know how good a d3000 is, didn't actually manage to feel one so far
But i think with 800+ as your budget, you can get a second hand d5000 w kit lens (prolly 900?) from our B/S section.
if i'm not wrong, d5000 made a much better camera than a d3000. And if you're just trying out, you might wanna get a second-hand one. Since the resell value wouldn't be a big difference in the case that you wanna go for an upgrade or something. just my take to this.
Of course, do consider other brands before making a purchase! good luck!
I have a Nikon D3000 that I can sell to you if your still interested.
Almost Brand new prolly snap less then 100 just to try out.
Check out the friendly and helpful Pentax subforum if you have the opportunity.
MHO is that its a smaller community with a regular monthly outing, giving a 'face' to every person on the forum and ppl stay nicer that way once you get to know each netizen face to face.
BTW, price guide section for all brands is here:
Hi dear, are you still interested in buying a D3000? I'm letting it go cheaply, clearing it off. email@example.com
