What should I look for when shopping for my first DSLR?
I am new to advanced photography. I am looking to buy a DSLR, Nikon D5100 is my main interest, previously I was thinking about Nikon D3100. Also thinking about Nikon D7000 - but felt more expensive?
And I am planning to get with twin lens kit - 18-55mm and 55-200mm/55-300mm (If Nikon D5100). Is that good for a beginner?
Or should I go for Nikon D7000 since no need to upgrade for a while - I gone through the specs and it was good. If so 18-105mm lens is enough or more high range is also required?
Or any options in Canon?
My goals are to take landscape, macro shots, miniature effects (I am not aware of all the things :))
I am not planning to make money on photography, it's my long time interest. So I want to start up with and get learning everything as a hobby.
