    Which DSLR for approx $1200?

    Hey guys,

    I am looking at buying a digital SLR for the first time. I want to buy something that I will be able to grow with as my knowledge progresses, and for this reason I feel a bit put off by some of the entry models.

    After doing plenty of research on CNET it appears that the Nikon sticks out the most, as I intend to use this camera for daily photography, travel and nature shots through all hours of the day - including low light. Video is not a big deal for me.

    Is there anything anyone could recommend particularly? There's just so many cameras and it is overwhelming!

    Thanks,
    Leigh

    Welcome to the forum!

    That's about the price of a D7000. Nice camera!

    Definitely the Nikon D7000. But, that's the price of it without a lens. With the kit lens, it's about $1500, unless you can find it on sale. Just make sure it's a factory authorized seller, so you'll have the warranty.
    Good luck!

    Fish around and you could get it with 18-105mm kit lens for about $1400
