Received a grey market camera with 3rd party batte
15 November 2013
Summary: While the title of the listing clearly stating that this is a USA camera with warranty card, I was optimistic that I'd receive what I expected. Instead, I got a grey market unit, including a 3rd party battery (the original Nikon battery was not in the box). I could tell that the box had been opened and tampered with as soon as I received it. Very disappointing.
Summary: I researched this model for months...talked to friends and pros to understand the Nikon vs Canon battle. Bottom line is you can't go wrong with either. Nikon just has lower entry models with better price points than Canon. I was looking at the newer D3200 and decided to go with the D5100 because of the pop out screen and the ability to take the settings to the next level when I have more experience. This site had the best price point with the 300 lens.
Summary: Great camera! Package came as described and on time. I'm new to photography so I'm still learning how to use it. But for a beginner I was able to take some beautiful shots and plan on taking more.
Summary: I love my camera and the price is a way better deal than you will find at any store. You will not regret buying this package. The quality of pictures is so great and all the accessories that it comes with is great to have.
Summary: The camera at this price ($469) is a steal. I would advice anyone to get the body only and purchase the Nikkor 35mm 1.8G prime lens. I am a beginner and i discovered my passion for photography with is camera.
Summary: Just learning all the capabilities beyond the"auto" setting. Allows for flexibility under all lighting conditions. And "scene", Autumn colors, selection is producing some incredible reds and yellows. Timing of purchase was perfect. Have previously owned Nikon digital and print cameras and have a comfort level in the commands. The lens interchangeability was important to me.
