I picked a Nikon D3300 to replace my old and glitchy D3100, and went with a 18-55mm, a 55-200mm, and a 35mm f/1.8 lens, all Nikkor. NOT cheap, but I did get an awesome deal on the camera, so that lessen the blow a bit. ;p
I haven't shot in manual in months, since that was one of the things that was broken on my old camera. I'm having so much fun with manual again! I'm a control freak, and I love the control photography gives you. And oh my god, the 35mm f/1.8 lens!!!! Incredible. Like I said, I've been lusting for one for quite a while. This lens allows you to get a really shallow depth of field (blurry background and bokeh, in essence), and gives such an incredible touch to your photos. This lens was used to shoot the above header, and that photo is one of my all time favorites.
Enough babbling, now! Here are some of the photos from the new camera. Almost all were shot full manual, and 99% are with the 35mm lens.
