My wife has her heart set on the Nikon D3100, so I'm researching the best place to buy it, as well as what I should get with it.
Amazon.com has the camera for $631.18, which is the best price I've seen to date, and they give a free camera bag of I dunno how good quality.
What are the essential accessories for someone getting their first DSLR? She loves taking nighttime photos with her current (point and shoot) camera so I'd like to get her a lens for that.
Should I be looking to get a service plan as well? The sales rep at the camera store tried pushing their 3 year warranty/service plan for something like $300 that'll take care of all repairs and maintenance of the camera, but for half the price of the camera itself, I'm not sure how worth it that is.
Thanks for any pointers!
