Hi everybody! I've been saving up for a DSLR for FOREVER. I finally have enough, and have been researching the newest DSLRs(when I first started saving up, the Canon T3i was top of the line and my favorite). I found a Nikon D3000 with 2 lenses(an 18-55mm and a 55-200mm, both no VR) for relatively cheap($399.00!!! and below my price limit of around 500), considering prices of comparable cameras, and was wondering if it was worth it. I have read reviews, specifically Ken Rockwell's, that said the D3000 was very slow, and while the 18-55mm lens was a great choice, the 55-200mm was not as great as the 55-200mm VR. I also have to say that this is my first DSLR, and I've been doing camera courses and reading/learning as much as I can since I first fell in love with the DSLR, so while I have book knowledge and some hands-on with a bridge camera(a Fuji FinePix), I have no experience with a DSLR.
Will I regret this purchase, or does it seem solid? Will I be needing another lens to compensate for the 'poor' quality of the 55-200mm lens, or is this something that I can learn on and work with? Thanks!
