Edited: The Nikon D3100 Arrived today, impressions and comments

I read only some of the comments written.

I'm leaning towards Nikon's side, and I think you'd better invest a little and buy the D90 which is a different league than all the cheap Nikon (no top screen, no focus engine, etc.).

Try to stay away from D80, is Tova (I have her) But I personally was pissed off by the bit of hot pixels she sometimes has.

If you go on a canon then in my opinion only 40D +, I would stay away from all XXXD.

It is better for you to buy now a great body, because the next thing you want to upgrade it will be a lens rather than a body.

It is very strange that the kit lens is in a version without VR (obsolete and optically inferior to 18-55VR).

Pentax or You would not encounter this problem 8)

I was a bit pissed off to discover that there is no built-in image stabilization (VR) in the lens and that now you have to be really careful with the camera because every little movement blur the image.

Even with You need to be careful and stable.

Overall, the D3100 has a good opening camera with an excellent sensor

I'd say you were a little late with this reaction, but hey ... not a judge :)

It's very strange that the kit lens is in the free version (Obsolete and optically inferior to 18-55 VR).

I'm already testing the lens upgrade. I'll probably give you another serious investment of money, but I'm wondering between lenses. My tendency is to bring 18-135VR and finish with the story, but suddenly the zoom also comes into consideration so also the 55-300VR looks suddenly attractive. Both are almost the same price (+ 1800 + -) but different in zoning.

Sunday goes to buy, have opinions this way or that?

under arrest.

You have a lens. You have .

Stop wasting money when you have no idea what you're buying and why.

Do not buy anything for a year. You'll learn to take pictures.

post Scriptum.

Only for 18-135 without stabilizer.

The model is 18-105.

I checked it, right.

What dramatic, you gave me a serious barks here.

Stop wasting money,

Why did you reach that conclusion? You know what's going on in my pocket? It is not nice to penetrate the privacy of others ...

When you have no idea what you're buying and why.

True, I'm not a first-class professional or even close to that. But what's more true is that for a long time I waited for the moment to have good equipment in my hand, and I saved for that. Go back a few posts and you'll realize that this was the initial goal of buying a lens with zoom.

Yes, I have read, yes I have experienced friends' cameras and I know what I'm buying.

Thanks for the tip, I took my attention, and still did not understand why to start with the "big" equipment that is considered for you to jump over your belly ..

Let me clarify something ...

Good photographic equipment does not make you a good photographer.

The first reaction when reading this sentence is to take offense. Why are you calling me a bad photographer? I was offended, too. Try to get over it, then you'll understand.

In fact, you could improve immeasurably from your level with a simple Phuket camera.

People buy SLR cameras, and are sure that the camera has made them better photographers. This is not true. SLR requires more thought in operation. It is thought that makes photography better. The "serious" camera is just a trigger.

It is important that we have equipment that he enjoys. But it's not really necessary for you to take good photographs.

For your specific purpose here -

You waited for good equipment in your hand. You have.

Equipment to buy, when something in the current equipment does not satisfy you. (Unless your last name is Rothschild)

The choice of what does not satisfy you, should be based on the guilt is the equipment and not your lack of knowledge, and your experience in photography where you feel that you want to take a picture and get stuck.

Choosing the right equipment, too, is tied to your experience, budget, and goals.

You currently have no knowledge, experience, or defined goals. So you buy equipment to buy equipment.

Perhaps, if you were more skilled, could you make do with excellent manual lenses that cost 10% of the price of new equipment and provide the same value?

Perhaps, if you had more knowledge and experience, would you think the 18-105 is an amateur lens that does not satisfy your requirements?

Do you need a telephoto lens or a dog lens? What style do you like? How important is it to you? What do you like to work with? Is building quality important to you?

It all depends on what you are taking. Right now you're not taking pictures.

Then -

Yes. It's a jump over your belly button. (Many do it, do not feel bad)

Go, shoot, work hard on the base.

I read and internalized. I liked your reference to details and I agree with you at 100 percent.

So I'll wait with that for a few months at least ... no big deal ;)
