Hi all,
I am a new member and not really a photographer. I joined to get some advice about buying a camera for my daughter. She has 3 cameras, including a superzoom and takes lots of pictures. She joined a camera club, but her cameras don't have the functionality needed to get the most out of the club discussions. She wants a DSLR with lots of manual control and I have decided to get her a D7000 for Christmas (I don't want her to grow out of an entry level model and want a better one). I don't know whether to go new or used.

If I decide to buy a new one, I can get it now with a $200 discount from Nikon, or I could wait and hope for better deal during the pre-Christmas sales. What do you think the chances are of Nikon or distributors having another special deal before the end of the year?

If I go used, I have to worry about whether it is an import that she would have trouble getting service on. Any advice about how to ensure that a used camera is a US model? Anything else I would need to consider when buying used?
