Can't go wrong with a Nikon!! That one should be more than good enough for everyday picture taking. I at one time worked at a photography store in Manhattan in the late 80's early 90's and still have my old 35mm equipment collecting dust in the shed. I should take them out and clean them up someday.

Im going to try to get the wife to get me a new cam, for Christmas!!
But I just want to know the best one to get for the best price, that I could still be using in a few years without it being outdated.

Thanks, for that advice David..

"Best for the price" shouldn't be the criteria you use when researching. Although I understand you're probably going this route due to financial reasons, but even so, your search should also be for picture quality and the ability to enlarge a picture without distorting it. Eventually, one day you're going to take a picture that you'll want to enlarge and frame but if the megapixel's aren't right, it might just blur when enlarged. So keep that in mind as well in your searching.

If you read my earlier posts, I state that I previously worked in a photography store in Manhattan during the late 80's early 90's in the heart of the art district. But I left that field back then for I/T where I've been working since '91. Photography is a hobby I picked up during my travels while in the US Navy from '78 - '82.
