Hmm any budget? If budget allows, why not the D7000?

Well, what lens do you have right now? and what type of photography are you interested in?

If you are a holiday photographer and don't intent to get any new lens, your current cam might just be sufficient.

If you are passionate about photography, maybe a D90 or D7000 would be fun to play with.

If you are unsure, then take the $1500 and go for a holiday with your D3100, and see how much you can get out of it.

:)

Hold on a sec, you bought the D3000 last week right? You started a thread regarding on weather to get d3k or d3100 and now you're changing again? Or you still haven't decided yet?

buy the most expensive camera you can afford without breaking the bank and starving yourself. :)

nah kidding... D5100 looks good on paper, but if you have the budget, why not D7000?

I see. Why don't you try to add some range to your lens first? I think you can consider a 18-200 or 18-105mm or 55-200mm or 35mm f1.8.

Most of the stuff that you need for a camera should be on d3000, don't think the d5100 will add as much to photography.

Just my two cents of opinion.

i suggest you read more about photography before even buying tools when you don't even know what's the purpose of it.

Agree, no point upgrading if you do not know what you are doing. You don't need to upgrade if you do not use the extra functions.

TS, you have to ask yourself really hard. What are you shooting? People in the streets? abstract? Buildings? The body is just a body. Any camera body can shooting anything. But you have to choose the right lens to do the right job. Same goes for your style in photography.

Your D3000 can definitely do the job. But we need understand more about your style or genre in photography. example, current equipment, scenery? which kind? people? which kind? Might be a nag but you know, just trying not to lead you to a wrong path.
