Gents, I'm asking this on behalf of my Dad who is looking to upgrade cameras.
I know very little about cameras.
He has a Nikon D40 with one of the better Nikon lenses (18-200? is that right?).
We are looking to sell the D40 with the original kit that it came with.
Ok, now he's looking at one of two cameras to utilize the lens and filters that he has.
A Nikon D300s (that a store is clearing out) or a Nikon D5100.
The 5100 is on sale regularly and it comes in a kit for just about as much as the body alone costs.
The D300s is just the body.
I personally would go for the D300s, but it's kinda big for him. He is wanting something similar in size and weight to the D40, just more updated.
Does anyone have any comments on these two cameras?
They are the only two that he is looking at.
He wants to buy local and we don't have a lot of options.
Thanks for your time.
