    Sorry I missed this while it was on sale, I don't know enough about Nikon, they do make great cameras, but their lower end lenses are rubbish, what I'd do is buy the cheapest Nikon body that suits your purpose and if you can afford it get a really good quality zoom something like 15 to 85 or 24 to 105 would do well.

    I know that Nikon have two main mount types the DX (cropped frame bodies) and F-mount/FX (full frame camera bodies pretty sure) so you have to know what your camera is, I think the DX mount cameras can take all lenses but the FX ones can't take the smaller lenses.

    I'd look for a top piece of glass and something that's continually F2.8 all the way through it's zoom range. Then shoot most things around the f5.6 to f16, depending on subject, a really good landscape shoot at f22 if you can.

    sorry getting in tech mode here, as for the body, it'll be a superb camera, but you maybe able to grab a cheaper body that does the job and spend more on the lenses.

    Don't get into the hype of camera bodies and megapixels, I still use my 8mp Canon 350D and 20D camera bodies as they offer a good quality and enough for a decent A3 print, I do have a professional body: Canon 1Ds MkIII, but it is generally reserved for my heavy duty work load when I'm photographing full time.

    Wow that was a good price for a proper SLR with a swiveling screen, I'm going to have see if it can do 60FPS in video, might be a good next camera.

    Cool, it does 60P at 720 resolution which is OK for a camera at that price but the swivel screen is super handy for me as my cameras often end up strapped to trees to record mountain bikers.

    Yeah i've been wondering if any of the Canon cameras do that, I've been shocked that very few do, cameras back in 99/2000 were all doing it, seems it's been a step backwards over the years.
