Summary: Go buy it now, and don't panic. you'll get the best camera in this price range, buy if you're looking for something little bit better, with a better display and pictures quality get the D3200
Pros: It's just a great starter level DSLR, it takes a stunning pictures and a beautiful 1080p video, buy it if you gonna use it for family profissional pictures, or you want to start in the photography world with a cheap and great quality DSLR.
Cons: the only problem I guess is it doesn't have a Microphone jack. However I used an alternative way to record my audio with a separate audio recorder.
good, but... wishing I could splurged on a full frame

Summary: I like this. But I really wanted a full frame. The reason it gets 4 stars is because you cannot use a wireless remote shutter with this model but you could with the d3000. I dont get that. I ordered one and had to return it.
Summary: Overall I was happy with my camera kit, however, the addtl lens adaptors that come with it were not satisfactory. I actually ended up having to buy an actual zoom lens. After I received the kit I did check out some addtl reviews and all said they felt the lens adaptors were inadequate as well.
Summary: I got around to writing review after more than a year since buying this camera. It meets my needs perfectly because I was looking for light-weight camera that gives good results indoors and has low shutter-lag.
Excerpt: For our tIght budget it works great. We have 2 boys in the hospital and needed something that would do low light photos without flash that were print quality. This is working for us. Wish we had the money to buy better by are very satisfied with this camera and package.
