Maybe...I might have gone with another camera maker instead. I think the comparable Sony camera I looked at was able to use all the old lenses. Although I know just like anything else you have to pay to play. I guess it doesn't matter because I will save my money still to get the lenses I want or at least some of them.
I was unaware, honestly, Sony even played in the same ballparks as Nikon.
The used (and new) market for Nikon lenses and accessories is (at least) an order of magnitude larger than that for Sony DSLRs. It is one of the main reasons Sony must price their products more aggressively.
IMHO one needs to decide at some point (preferably before buying a body) just what world they want to inhabit. Is the narrower scope of possibilities offered by the Sony (or other second-tier) system more than adequate for your needs? If so you'll likely get more technical-bang for the buck. Or are you willing to pay a little more to play on the big field (Nikon, Canon) where you run a better chance of getting all your potential needs addressed?
