I'll start off by saying I've been looking for a hobby for awhile now. I've always been interested in photography, and after reading http://reviews.cnet.com/best-prosumer-dslr-cameras/?tag=contentMain;contentAux I'm only more confused. I want something that will last awhile so spending $200 more for something that will last a couple years isn't really that big of a deal. Would going with a D5000 over a D3000 really make a difference? And lastly, can you guys recommend a beginners guide - be it book or online guide. Overall I'd just like help selecting a camera and then a reference to a complete beginners guide. Finding where to get accurate information is the hardest part!
