OK. I think that list might be final. We'll have to see how it goes. I've got like £275 now I think, so that leaves £199 to go. :/

:D

Get ready to continue spending more and more money on lenses and accessories, lol
Oh the spending isn't over yet. Paid Dad £113 for the D-SLR today, need to buy a bag for it before Saturday (going to London on Saturday!), need another memory card and a bunch of other stuff for it.

Photography is going to be where my cash goes. The PC is as good as it needs to be I think - or at least for now. ;)

I can see you upgrading to a better body in two or three years, as well as buying a good collection of lenses.

Lenses, yes. Body, maybe not for a while. ;) One of the reasons for choosing the D3200 was the 'future-proofness', 24.2 MP should keep me going for a while. :D

Oh don't you worry, you'll want the better high ISO performance and a FF camera before you know it :p

Jason just got schooled by the dynamic duo :p Don't worry we'll get them back! lol
:D

On a serious note, thank you everybody here for your help and advice. It is all appreciated and I've learned a lot by asking you guys and doing some of my own research into which SLR to get. I'm looking forward to shooting with the D3200 and I think it will be staying with me for some time to come yet. :)

Hey, Jason, hope you're enjoying your D3200 so far!

Regarding what some of the others said about megapixels, this is a good read. I don't usually like to recommend Ken Rockwell's articles, some of his stuff is pretty out there if you know what I mean, but this particular article is quite useful for learning about the "Megapixel Myth".

Hey Evan,

Yes I am loving my D3200! :D Thank you for the article, I'll take a read of it! :)

I'm off to London today, so I should get some nice photos with the D3200! :)

These are objects with an excellent price on as a total. You can even decrease some of it.
First, you don't need the 32 GB card and why the 75-300 mm lens. You got the canon 1100d which says you are a beginner. You should just start with kit 18-55mm lens to start with.

I suggest getting a 16 GB card with an 18-55mm lens. This will even drop your expenses down a bit.

Dude, I got a Nikon D3200 and I've got the 18-55 kit lens, read the thread.

And a 32GB card is nice to have when your RAW files are about 25MB in size.
