Thank you! Since I understood next to nothing of what you actually said...I'm thinking I should start with an entry level dslr! lolThanks! If you really like taking pictures and are willing to learn a camera, then yes I recommend it. It has a build quality much higher than the entry level dslr's and the sensor is phenomenal. I just picked up a second lens non zoom 50mm f/1.8 to be able to shoot in low light with no flash, and I am blown away by it in conjunction with the d7100 body.
