Best First Camera for Photography 2016-2017
“What should I get for my first camera?” is such a common question. It also has so many different answers like, “This brand new camera,” “Whatever suits you,” and “Just pick one and don’t look back, they’re all the same.” Which may be true, but does not really help someone new to photography.
My goal here is to not only specifically answer this question, but to save people as much money as possible while still offering the modern features they want.

UPDATE (August 2017): I still stand by this recommendation even over a year later. Canon hasn’t shown much growth and the mirrorless companies are still too expensive with not as many lens options in my opinion, leaving Nikon as a clear winner. Then this D5200 can be had for very cheap with semi modern performance which means little to no risk. If I had to recommend a more professional alternative I would go with the D7100 which can be had for around $500 used.
