The week before Christmas I bought a d5200 with the 15-55 and 55-300for $520.
Today I bought a d3100 with another 15-55 and a 50mm for $270, 'for the rest of the family to use '
I'm stalking people with 35mm nikkor's on gumtree and ebay trying to get one for less than $160.
Admittedly I'm not using the 55-300, and my 15-55 is kept between 20 and 35 90% of the time.
This hobby is like stereo equipment, and guitars, and home workshops...
