Hi everyone. I am getting started on photography and would like to buy a d40 from a friend of mine. She is selling the body with 2 lenses. The 2 lenses are : nikon 18 -55 mm dx and 18 - 105 mm vr at $500. Is it a good deal?
if you are really into photography, why not top up abit more? for newer model? like 3100 or 5100 and it might last you
longer? hmm. you can get a 2nd 3100 in BnS for like less 650? +/- with kit lens (18-55) or if you want 18-105, u can
sell your 18-55 and top up (maybe $130+/-) for a 18-105?
if im not wrong d40 is actually quite an old model.
That's a prudent approach.
People on the opposite end of the spectrum believe in 'one time pain' to the wallet when starting out, as opposed to continually 'upgrading'
I would shortlist the latest cameras that are within my budget, and go from there.
