      Comments about Nikon D5100 16.2 Megapixel Digital SLR Camera With 18mm-55mm Lens:

      This is my first digital SLR camera and I have been really impressed. I have two children and they do not sit still for pictures so my little point and shoot was not cutting it. This takes pictures so quickly that I don't have to worry about them moving around now. I like the 18-55mm lens but am looking for a larger telephoto now.
