View Full Version : Decisions, Decesions... First Dslr choices!

20-02-12, 09:52 AM

I am currently trying to decide on my first DSLR to buy!

After many productive hours spent reading various reviews etc I have narrowed it down to...

Nikon D3100

Pentax K-R

Sony Alpha A350

or lately I'm tempted by the Canon eos 500d as the price seems to have dropped a wee bit. I realize this is an older model which is the only thing that is holding me back.

Any camera I buy will be with the standard lens kit as I can't quite stretch to an upgrade just yet!!

Any input or advice would greatly appreciated as I would like to get this right first time around!

Thanks in advance :)

Hi and welcome if you are looking at the 500d then also look at the 550d price has come down too.

I've just purchased the Pentax K-r, and it's a lovely little camera for a first DSLR. My daughter has one of these too, and she loves it, and gets some really good shots with it.

I've also got a Sony, the Alpha 580, which I really love. Would have to say this is my fav.

Good luck with your choice.
