A friend has asked me for some advice on purchasing a decent Nikon camera body for his daughter. She has done a photography college course using an old Nikon film camera and he wants to get her a good digital dslr which will use her present lenses.
We are looking at serious photography here, but on a tight budget.
I was thinking about the Nikon equivalent of the Canon 40D; which I guess would possibly be the Nikon D90. But I don't know much about the newer Nikon range.
However, I think this could be a touch more than he can afford; although he may be pushed another £100 by some good endorsements. He has been offered a secondhand D200 for £400 which seems a good deal. But I don't really know what to advise.
I think she did a general arts course which included photography so she won't be turning professional tomorrow and just wants to continue learning photography but switch to digital.
What would the Nikon men suggest?
