Summary: I am very happy with the camera, I could have not got a better product for my introduction to Digital photography and I have only been improving and taking better photos everytime. The rest of the articles are not very useful, except for a couple of lens and filters.
Summary: I got this to replace my D60. I really wanted the D5100 but couldn't afford it. It has all of the basic features I wanted but is missing the additional resolution of the D5100, 14.2 Meg vs 16.2 meg, and the adjustable screen which is OK. The most important thing to me is that it uses all of my lenses and attachments I had for the D60 and uses them as well or better than the D60. It's a very nice camera. It takes very nice HD video.
Summary: This is my 3rd dslr/ilc camera, and I will say I have owned entry level before. The Olympus E-420 or E-450, Sony A100, A200 Etc. are entry level. This camera is more mid level in my opinion, and I knew that going in. I was close to buying Canon t1i or t2i and decided on this. I also purchased Nikkor 35mm DX f1.8 lens, and it has not came off camera since I put it on. I tested the kit lens and put it up. The camera really shines with this lens.
Summary: I love the camera it is the first real decent camera I have ever owned. I purchased it for myself and it was well worth the price. It came with lots of accessories and I love them all. I am still trying to figure out some of the fancy operations to the camera but I believe it is because I do not use them often. I absolutely love the 55-300mm zoom lens one of the main reasons I bought it for my landscape pictures I wanted to be closer. This definitely does that for me!
Summary: My first digital camera I used film SLRs years ago and got proficient. I like letting the camera focus while I pay attention to framing a good shot. I haven't found the included software useful.
