I haven't bought one yet because first I have to tie up my wife, then brainwash her into believing that my blowing $1600.00 on a camera I really don't need is a good idea.
Then I will probably buy the Nikon 5100 with the 70-300 lens and a speedlight to be chosen later.
I looked at Amazon and they are having a $xxx.00 off promotion if you buy a camera and qualifying lens.

The truly stupid part of this whole thing is I recently purchased a Canon Power Shot SX30 (which is a SuperZoom) with a speedlight but I have never been real happy with it. The pictures seem soft and slightly off color at the larger zoom levels.

Maybe my wife will save me from myself.
