Go for D5100 - it will cost u around 40 k..but on your budget margin D7000 is an excellent one..

I would recommend the Nikon D5000 - I am using the 3000 currently and plan to upgrade.

I am a beginner and I just got my first DSLR it is a Nikon D5100 I love it very easy to use and great pictures.I use it in Aperture and Shutter Priority modes. Still learning hopefully I will learn Manual Mode one day. You can compare cameras here  this is where I went to help my choice.  :D

If the price is fairly close, a 600D has a couple of extra feature the 550D does not and otherwise they are the same.  I have a 550D.  If I were purchasing now, I would get the 600D instead.  But, that is me.  I have a collection of Canon lenses and bodies so I would not be looking at Nikon in the dSLR class.

You should hold the cameras you are thinking about.  Look at the buttons, the menus, the weight, the balance, the general feel.  Get the one that speaks to you.
