    For me I tend to not chose Nikon and Canon cameras only because I think they are over rated, for an entry level camera I would recommend looking at the pentax KX or KR, there are alot of pros to chosing pentax cameras, one being their lenses are cheap yet are good quality, another is you can use old lenses and if you compare the KR's specs to say the D3100 they are far better. But its up to you

    Hi and welcome it looks like you have been and looked at a few DSLR's which is good so next what do you take pictures of. SDLR's usually come with a kit lens you can also specify your own lens, so knowing what you take shots of will help. From a lens point of view canon and nikon have the biggest range which also means that there are plenty of third party ones to choose from too. I wouldnt dismiss any make at this time till you work out what type of lens you may want. Good luck

    Hi Gaz. As a Nikon user myself, I also own several Sigma lenses with Nikon fit. I find the quality of the images just great and many of these lenses can be bought used with a good guarantee and this makes them cheaper too. It's something else to think about. All the best.
