Dear Yvonne,
As for me in your situation Nikon D5100 will be best solution

There are not so many, darling!

Like Vladimir wrote: a D5100 will do. It has a tiltable display, which is a nice feature.

What about a nice, but used one: a D5000 (similar to D5100) at about 300-350 GBP, D90 at a similar price (simply a really nice DSLR), or a D300 at about 600 GBP (a very fast camera with semi-pro quality).

I've bought a D5000 at 350 GBP about nine months ago, which had only 2,000 shutters done - it was almost new, from a dealer (www.mifsuds.com from Brixham) with guarantee.

www.ffordes.co.uk (from Inverness) is another good address to find good used cameras without risk.

There are a ton of options actually and I remember the D40 to be my first ever body! It was great and all that but when you want to progress with your inclination, you have to get something better. I personally went with the D90 and it was a lot great. From being an upper tier entry level set, it sured paved for a lot of great things.

But it would also be great to choose one that would be apt for your shooting preference.

My D7000 is the best choice I can imagine. I can strongly recommend it. All your lenses will work perfectly and you can also use the older NIKKORS without AF motor. The same sensor as the 5100 and a lot more options.

The D7000 should be around 1,000 GBP rather than 600 GBP.

If anyone offered me a new one for 600 GBP - I'll buy it immediately...
