I want to buy a new camera and i am currently staying in New Delhi.
I was confused between Nikon D 3200, D 90 and Nikon D 5200 and I had finally decided to go for the later one, Nikon D 5200.
Also I will be buying a lens of 18-105 mm and not 18-55 mm.
Plus I can buy one more lens AFS Nikkor 35mm 1.8/G which is being given at a price of Rs 9000 if it is bought with the Camera. These two are great lenses to have in your Kit. I have following two queries:-

1) Is it okie to go for these two lenses in the beginning? Is D 5200 a right choice over D 90 and D 3200.

2) I had checked the authorized dealers of Nikon from their website. I had inquired the prices from GOLU Chandani Chowk and Digital Zone Chandani Chowk. They are all authorized dealers of Nikon and their prices are 50000 and 48500 respectively with BILL.
I want to know whether Digital Zone is reliable??
Is there any chance that these dealers can change the accessories like battery or charger etc. with a duplicate one.
Kindly help me choosing the right place to buy the Camera.

I had brought photogear from Golu at Chandni chowk and he's satisfactory. You should get bill and warranty card if you buy from him. No experience of digital zone. The lenses are fine as you wont have the hassle of changing in the field (assuming you're happy with the range). Otherwise, 18-55 + 55-200 is a better solution (I used a D40+18-55+55-200 for 5 years before upgrading recently).

Golu is popular and I have heard good reviews abt him.
The only point is tht he is charging 2000 Rs more. The other guy is also giving the camera with bill and warranty card and is authorized nikon dealer (checked from their web).
And regarding 18-105, I have heard tht its a superior lens + I will have to carry only one lens on my trips..thats why I chose tht. Ofcourse the choice you mentioned is better because nikon is giving a gr8 offer on 55-200 lens as well.
Anyways thanks for your reply vaibhav.

Guys, anybody having any idea about digital zone kindly let me know. Since he is giving the camera plus 18-105 at this kind of a price, that made me skeptical tht he might take away original accessories.

You can also try at Pritam Sons, Chandni Chowk and if bugdet allows, go for Nikon 18-140 VR lens , with 24 MP, 5200 is a good choice. 7000 is also another option.

I think the best lens for you is the one that covers the things you shoot most. While it is nice to have the 200mm range, if it's not what you typically shoot, perhaps a better option might be had. With any of the cameras mentioned, you have a fair amount of image resolution. Depending on the final outcome of the images/i.e. how large you plan to enlarge, a pretty high quality image can be obtained by cropping, thereby negating the need for the extra focal length/weight/price. I've been leaning heavily on my Canon G12 for years now. Pretty much a high-end point and shoot, but image quality is great, and each image can stand a fair amount of cropping/enlarging.

I also have a Nikon D90. As this camera has now been usurped by newer models, there might be some great deals on the D90 now, and it is very good camera. We can of course nitpick about New-this or Improved-that, but in the end it is the image that matters . . . not to mention the eye of the artiste
