I am not exactly new to photography (although not very good) but I recently gave my old K100 Super plus , filters, yongnuo flashes etc. to a more worthy cause - my lovely daughter who is undertaking a graphic art qualification.
I bought a Panasonic Lumix TZ-30 and, while it has many good qualities as a travel zoom, I miss the things that one could do with a proper DSLR. What are your thoughts on the best value buy for a DSLR + Kit (18-55 mm) for example?
The D5100 seems a likely target.
