Nikon D3200 or D5100
Which SLR do you advice for a beginning photographer, the Nikon D3200 or Nikon 5100?
I don't really see the advantages of both cameras, and I want to buy a camera for the future...
I will sometimes use it for filming as well.

Lenses are just the other way around. I have some that are 20+ years old that will work well and are as good as those being sold today. No one can say the same for a SLR body.
So if you have some fixed sum of cash to "invest" but the best glass you can afford and then the remainer in a body. In the old days of filmbased photography it did make sense to keep a bopy for 10 years or even 20. But those days are gone. Today your big money is tied up in expnsive glass then every so often you upgrade the body.
Well you do that unless yu are the typical consumer who buys the body with the "kit" lens and then never takes any photos.
So look at your budget and plan out the next few pieces of equipment you want. Only you'd know if you want a macro lens or a short wide angle "fast" zoom or whatever. Then see which body fits. With SLR gear you have to plan ahead and look at the entire "system".
