While this thread is being revived, how does the Nikon numbering system work? Is D7xxx more featured than D5xxx? Is D5xx better than D5xxx? I can't get my head round it.

Various charts exist on the interweb for Camera gear which show ranges of lenses/bodies etc.:

Yep, its not straightforward. Wikipedia does a decent job:

Anyone got any suggestions as to what buys the most bang for its buck in that sort of range at the moment?

How many bucks have you got? The sensors in the newer DX models are basically all the same. More money buys you a bigger camera with a better viewfinder, better autofocus, bigger buffer, wireless flash control.

Yep, have pretty much figured that out re. sensors, leaving then the questions of whether doubling the resolution from a D90 to D7100 is much use in the same sensor, and whether bigger camera with more useful layout is worth the hassle of carrying it round:-)

As to how many bucks then they are limited but would be happy to shell out on a second hand D7000, or maybe even D7100 if could see it was a worthwhile investment...

Nobody said it was going to be easy:-)

Are you a real person? Or just some kind of photo-equipment-bot?  Or just a boulderer who only feels like contributing to photo related threads?

Digital cameras are consumables, not investments.....

Best thing if on a budget is wait till a new model is released, at which point the second hand market is flooded by the previous model being offloaded by bleeding edge fanbois, often in good nick as plenty of em buy every new model released.

The tier of middle Nikons below the topend DX bodies but above the bottom end consumer DXs has traditionally had a good balance of features and price. The ones with wireless flash control and a proper AF motor. Often they have the same features of the topend models just in a smaller less rugged body minus a couple of buttons. You can't go wrong with these really

A used 5300 is probably the best deal at the mo, e.g.: http://ffordes.com/product/15110216315231
