Hi! I'm new in the forum and I would like to greet you all. I come from Spain, so I apologize for my mistakes. I've been saving some money, (I'm still a Student), and I'd like to by a Camara, a DSLR from Nikon. I've searching and I think that this two ones are the best for beginners, (price and quality). I've read the characteristics and I think they both are quite similar. I have in mind too to take some kind of photography course. My questions: Can someone tell me which are the characteristics that make one or the other better? Which one do you recommend to buy, attending to the 100-150 difference (about 150 - 225$)?? As I said, I'm still a student, i'd like that it would be ok for the next 4 or 5 years.. (I know it is quite impossible...) I thank you all for your time and your answers. See you soon! Bleticus A leave you here some pages with the specifications.
