If you're confused about which Nikon DSLR to buy - and who wouldn't be? - my darling Lori Grunin at CNET just published a list of her recommendations.
Lori has advice whether you're on a tight budget, a hobbyist, or a budding pro (and a few more categories, too).
The bad news about Lori's suggestions? There are no surprises: The more expensive the camera, the better it performs.
Lori also gives a bit of advice I was just discussing with Kerry Garrison on the most recent episode of The Digital Photography Show: "On a general note, if your budget is tight, and unless there's a specific feature or performance level you need from a particular model, it's usually a good idea to save money on the body and spend it on a better lens." We said the same thing!
