Opt for the d3200 or d3300
The 1200d hasnt got many good reviews and i have used 600d..not too pleased with it.
Go for d3200 with 18-55 and 55-200 lens

Re: New DSLR for Beginner

Any good deals that you know of ?? Nikon seems to be atleast 10k expensive than the dual kit combo & is it worth the extra money ? How's 600D or D5200 since they fall in the same price bracket as the D3300 ??

Which 55-200 lens ? Any links would be really helpful.

Re: New DSLR for Beginner

50-200 is fine or you can go upto 300 as well if you wanna talk wildlife stuff . but i would suggest you get the camera first,get used to the basic first and then move on to zoom lens, prime.lens.etc

Ultimately went ahead with Nikon D3300 with kit lens for 27k. Also ordered the remote & Nikon 55-200mm VR lens which was around 7.2k

Thanks for all the suggestions in the thread. Now where do I start off with the basics of DSLR shooting is the next big question. Have gone through a couple of Nikon DSLR videos but I think I need a lot more insight. Kindly suggest.

Regards

^ Have alook of Tamron 70-300 non VR lens. One friend is using it. It is really nice for the price range.

There are many advanced cameras from Nikon, and it is the best brand as well. Price is also not too high, so I will surely go with Nikon cameras, probably Nikon Coolpix AW120.

Re: New DSLR for Beginner

My bet would be to go for Nikon D3200. A fantastic entry-level camera with superb detail reproduction and a decent kit-lens to boot.

PROS:
Excellent guide mode
24MP sensor
Full HD video

Also users who are unlikely to invest in a second, longer focal length range can crop into images post-capture and still retain a large enough pixel count for high quality images
