Hello hello. I'm planning to upgrade into a Dslr and have currently a used d80 + 50 1.8 or new d3100 in mind as my budget is around 1.6k.

So wanna have an advice here from all sifu that is the larger pentaprism virwfinder, autofocus motor, dual dial of d80 worth it over the lack of live view and cmos sensor of the d3100?

I'm planning to venture more into high magnification macro photography. Thanks all!

Canon 600D and D5100 is much recommended compared to d90. I used d90 once... the video is capped at 720p and it heats up easily after 6-9minutes....
However this is not much concern as you are in HDR, landscape, wedding. D90 IQ is good but D5100 is better. But d90 have much buttons for settings and 2 dial for better control. Try both before choosing. biggrin.gif

Yes, D3100 lacks of a autofocus motor but if you can always get G lenses to pair with it in the future. Besides it has a much(?) better ISO performance, bigger MP count, FULL HD video recording,etc

If I were you I'd go with the latest tech, save up a bit and get a 50 f/1.8G or 35f/1.8G lens smile.gif

You could also ask Nikonians in the dedicated thread for better answers though biggrin.gif

Just bear in mind that D5100 lacks a AF motor meaning you can only get Auto Focus by pairing it with only G lenses...

D5100 has newer tech compared to D90 which are better sensor, better metering(?), better ISO performance, flippy screen and perhaps a higher reso screen(?)

600D should perform similarly as the 2 Nikon models above...

Anyway, for weddings, you might want to allocate some funds for a flashgun which is crucial for indoor shots. Fast lenses are also recommended to get a quick AF lock..

p/s: D90 with kit lens for RM2.6k? hmm.gif

Coming from the world of Canon, I can tell you that the menu system in Canon's DSLRs are very easy to learn/access and reach.

I've tried operating some Nikon DSLRs before and I can tell you that it's really not as user friendly as Canon's though there seem to be many and specific options for each functions, perhaps more than Canon's.

Your budget is probably ain't enough for Compact Interchangeable Lens cameras as you might need multiple lenses for each photography genre...

If you're not that serious into photography, I'd suggest a good compact like a Canon S100, Oly XZ-1 or the Lumix LX5. Do look up to some of the recommendations I made in the second post I made in this thread smile.gif

I'd recommend the Lumix LX5, Oly XZ-1 and Canon S100. These 3 are the popular ones and should perform similarly smile.gif

Do check my 2nd post of this thread smile.gif

I'd recommend the Olympus XZ-1 since it has a good max f/1.8 aperture to f/2.5 at tele end and a good zoom range extending from 28mm to 112mm without losing much light thumbup.gif

Or you could check out Canon's S100 or Panasonic Lumix LX5 as well smile.gif
