I think it's a good choice. I especially like this camera because it has video as well. most people will say that they dont need the video but so did I. I loved the video that mine took. The quality beat any camcorder that I have ever had and we had a $1000 handycam at that time.

I think you would be happy with that one and it's a good price.

nope. Entry level Nikons don't have autofocus in the body and that is a deal breaker for me.

I actually looked pretty closely at that camera before choosing a Canon EOS Rebel T3. It's a great camera from what I have reviewed.

What Heather meant by autofocus was that you will have to buy lenses that have an autofocus motor inside the lens. The entry level nikons dont have an autofocus motor inside the camera so it depends on the lens to have a motor to autofocus. The lens that came with your camera has a motor in it, which is why you can autofocus. It's something to keep in mind if you buy a new lens or a used one.

I am glad that you like it! It's such a rush when you get a new camera and get to play with it!
