Well I said I was opinionated.
I think Nikon has done the world a massive disservice with the Nikon D3000 and D5000 series cameras.. even flagship D5600.
These cameras are well made, excellent in low light, and in many scenarios can take photos that rival those coming out of the $6,000 D5.. but that's not the point.
What's the point? Here's a little Nikon history lesson and my thoughts on these entry level cameras - and why the cameras I recommend to people on a budget are the D90, D7100, D700 and D3s.
