D5100 refurbished body + 50mm prime will surely be the better option to go with.This is with some extra good features especially its new good graphics and background design features.
Anyhow thanks for nice contribution.

|Dan's85||I can see that. A D5100 kit from flEbay fits right into my budget too.|

|concepts88||I just wanted to add the shots i posted are jpg and not raw and they had no post processing done to it. So you can do incredible things with even a basic camera, technique and good glass.|

|Dan's85||I think one of the D5100 refurbished kits might be the way for me to go then. All of those pics are incredible.|

|Da Plant Man||
D5100 refurbished with kit lens.
Here are some examples as well. Took these the other day.
Caught a shooting star
Its a little out of focus, but you get the idea.
All of these were taken this past week. This just shows the day-to-day shots you can get.

When I first started out. I used a D5100 and I paired it with a 17-55 DX 2.8 Lens. The lens itself is retail 1600, so it was more than double the cost of the camera. I have since improved and use a different Nikon now.
Here is an example of a shot on a D5100 and a Nikon 17-55 2.8 Lens
Later photos on a D7000

|Dan's85||Cool. Thanks again!|

|concepts88||You usually don't use auto focus for macro shots|
|07-17-2013 03:40 AM|
|Da Plant Man||Yes, but some won't have auto focus. The D5100 for instance only supports AF-S style auto focuses. While older cameras and more expensive ones like the D90 can support AF-S and just AF. The difference is that the motor for AF-S is in the lens, while AF has the motor in-camera.|

|Dan's85||One quick question, will all Nikon lenses work with all of their cameras?|
|07-17-2013 02:07 AM|
|concepts88||Megapixels mean nothing unless you plan to blow your picture up for posters or crop photo intensely. It's all about the camera, the settings and mainly your glass. Your lenses.|

|concepts88||D5100 is good D5200 refurbish is better. It has more megapixels. 5100 and 5200 has flipout screen for video. If you i need video get a d3100 or refurb d3200 which has more megapixels.|
