Looking to buy a new camera and new lens.

Hello Nation, I am looking for a new camera and lens to buy.

I will be shooting mainly paintball, but other things on occasion.

I am not looking to spend more than $1000.

I am currently using a Nikon D3100.

Invest in lenses. 14.2 megapixels is plenty and if you are shooting paintball I am assuming it will be sunny out so no need for that great of high ISO performance.

The only thing that may limit you is the 3 frames per second. However I think you would probably benefit more from better lenses than from more FPS.

if you still stick with the Nikon, you could see the D3200 or D3300

So, someone reported my post about the lack of an AF motor in the lower nikon cameras as spam! WTF??
