Nikon D5500 ( Body Only, Black)
Lightweight and compact with everything the family photographer needs, the Nikon D5500 maintains its position as a great general-purpose dSLR.
Canon EOS 7D Mark II ( Body Only)
The fixed LCD and lack of built-in wireless file transfer support may make some people cross it off their short list, but the Canon EOS 7D Mark II should please any Canon fan looking for speed.
Nikon D750 ( Body Only)
It's not the cheapest camera in its class, but the Nikon D750 delivers an excellent combination of quality, performance and features for its price.
Canon EOS Rebel T5 ( with 18-55mm Lens)
While it's a perfectly fine camera when you're making the jump from a point-and-shoot, there are better choices than the Canon EOS Rebel T5.

Very good photo quality for its class plus decent performance make the Nikon D3300 A solid choice for a first dSLR.
Nikon D5300 ( Body Only)
The Nikon D5300 is a great choice as a general-purpose dSLR.
Nikon D610 ( with 28-300mm Lens)
Though competition's increasing for low-end full-frame cameras, the Nikon D610 holds its own; that said, while slightly faster than its predecessor it's not a whole lot different.
Canon EOS 70D ( with 18-135mm STM Lens)
An overall excellent camera, but one that fails to capture the best-in-class prize for image quality.
Pentax K-50 ( with 18-55mm WR Lens, Red)
A reasonable option for an entry-level dSLR, the Pentax K-50 should satisfy if you need the weather-sealed design. But while acceptable, it and its cheaper sibling the K-500 lag behind the competition in image quality and performance.
Canon EOS 100D ( Body Only)
While the Canon EOS Rebel SL1 is a perfectly reasonable entry-level dSLR, you can get the same photo and video quality in a smaller body for the same money (or less) by opting for a mirrorless interchangeable-lens model.
