Summary: I have just received my Nikon D3100 and I did buy the camera with additional Nikkor 55-300 lens (I was pleased with the USD 100 rebate promotion). I had read on one of the posts that the camera is made in Japan, but please note both the camera and 18-55 lens are Made in Thailand.
Excerpt: This camera is everything it claims to be. Good entry to mid level DSLR. Image quality is excellent. Auto focus and vibration reduction works well with included 18-55mm lens. I also run a 55-300mm lens that has great image quality but a little slow on the auto focus with faster moving objects.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Summary: OK so i'm a high school student who was interested in photography ever since i took my first photography class. I loved all the things relating or about photography. I always used to use some point and shoot camera but not anymore. I BOUGHT THIS CAMERA and couldn't be more happier.
