Just came back from lunch to find a brand new D7100 with an AF-S 80-400 VR waiting for me.

The increased rez and the lack of an AA filter do make a marked improvement on the 7100. More testing needed.

the new 80-400 is amazingly sharp for such a zoom range. You can't see on this low rez post but it's there

Alright guys, I don't want to start a flame war, and I'm genuinely curious.. What do you think would be the best truly beginner camera for someone who just wants to take nice photos. As in, what will make it the easiest to go, "oh, I think this would make for a nice picture. I think I will try to capture it". I don't need to be able to print on billboards, I don't need the satisfaction of spending large amounts of money and carrying around large lenses and cameras. I'm thinking a dslr might not be for me, after all.

I had my heart set on a D5100, but now I'm thinking I might just like some sort of a point and shoot. Are there any particularly good used ones that I should keep an eye out for? I'm on a strict budget of nothing, but I'd like to save up and get something asap.

Thanks for any advice, and please keep it nice. No need to argue, everyone can state their opinions. I do have a dumbphone that can take -decent- shots but it's a real pain to work with. I want something dedicated to taking photos. But, to be honest the quality I get out of my cheap phone would probably be decent enough for most pictures.

The other thing is.. even if I progress to a nice DSLR lately, it won't suddenly render my point and shoot irrelevant. I think I'm finally on the right track. We will see.. Thanks for the suggestions leftnose.

Nikon ONE series is dope. The new V2 hits 15 fps full Rez with AF. It can AF during video has a high speed slow mo video feature at 400 fps or 1200 fps. The lens line up is growing as well. Great small flexible little system that shouldn't be dismissed

camera i really like is the D200, takes great pictures, easy to use and u can pick them up used pretty cheap. U can also pick up a nice used lens for pretty cheap too.i get like a nice 50mm f1.8 lens. If you can afford a bit more, a nice used D300 rocks too. Fun part about Nikon cameras is you can use the lenses on other bodies as u upgrade.

i never even goes to his web site anymore.  yes, i do agree the new 5d mkiii is an excellent camera but it is better than d800?  i don't know...it depends on what type of photo you are taking.  the lens also has a lot to do with it too.

 

rockwell even recommend the 28-300 for d800/e too. really???

I  agree with you. LOL He just in the new kick with  grubbing his commission and he likes adorama which I think as a dealer they suck I use BH all the time and dont link Rockwell to the site.. If anyone deserves to be like to. Tom Hogan. The 5D is a nice camera as a Doc I know use one and I took some shots with it. I am pretty satisfied with my Nikon D7000 and committed myself to DX for  now at least
