Hello everyone I could use some help. My wife is an aspiring photographer, she has done very well with the low level camera she is using now (Old model Nikon Coolpix ) but wants to move on to bigger and better things. I thought I would surprise her with a camera for Christmas - She is looking at the Nikon D90 but right now it is out of our price range. Can anyone reccomend a good entry level user friendly DSLR that will get her started on her journey? She prefers the Nikons but I think she would be happy with any upgrade. She photographs mostly animals and nature but does the occassional portrait. She has a ton of ideas and what she has done with a point and shoot is nothing short of amazing and I cannot wait to see what she can do with some semi-pro equipment. Thanks in advance for any and all help. Craig M.
