Wow, cool to see that people still read this. I have my 3100 and I love it!! I have been waiting to take it outside until the weather got better, so I am almost ready. So far it has taken great pictures of our new son, a cousins wedding reception, other bits and things here and there, and one race weekend. It takes great pictures, and I am learning more about it everytime I take it out. So far my favorite is being able to get the moving water shots, and the pictures I got from my race weekend with panning looked un real! I did get the kit 18-55 lens, and that works pretty good so far. I would like to get the next step up lens once I am done blowing money on the wifes new car, and can save up a bit.
