picked up Nikon D3100 body only from local camera shop. They matched online pricing.
Last camera I had was Nikon D5000 which I sold as needed money for trip I took to Sevastopol and Sumy in Ukraine. During trip had to use Canon SD1300 P&S as only took carry on luggage.
Battery is charging as I write this. I do not expect this camera to out perform the D5000 or D300s but having camera to use is better than not being able to take photos. At least this way, I can take pics while waiting either for D700 replacement or D300s replacement ( if D300s replacement has same iso performance as D700 ).
Only lense I own right now is the Nikkor AF-S 35mmF1.8 DX. Is it worth the price difference for AF-S 35mmF1.4 ? At least it becomes 35mm in FX format.
Always felt in old film days, lenses better investment - is this still considered true? If I want only prime lenses, what would be best choices at this time?
Could I get away with just having AF-S 35F1.4 and AF-S 85F1.4 if subjects general outside stuff and people inside.
Seems not much interest in D3100 on this forum? Guess all attention going to D7000 here!!!
