I'm going to buy a camera tomorrow afternoon and need some recommendations. Budget is up to 3k. I'll take lessons with whatever camera I get. Nikon or cannon preferred. Digital camera. Mostly will be used for my own enjoyment. Taking up a new hobby of photography to fill in some time. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks @Phar Lap @geoffw @Phar Lap you once said " DSLR Canon 40D with expensive lenses and filters etc" So should I get similar?
