Hi Nikonians

New to the site. I have a D3000 with a nikkor 18-200 lens. I have been taking lots of photos of my kids nothing adventurous.

Moved from point and shoot 3 years ago and this is my first DSLR bought new when launched. Was a bit disappointed that the model was replaces so fast and it being described as the "Nikons worst DSLR ever".

I used the camera and nikkor 18-55. Bought the 18-200 wanted a one lens does all but not very happy with the combination. Photos are now darker than before. When using the flash I now get a shadow from the lens.

I would like to do more adventurous things than just using the Auto Mode, bought the Nikon D3000 for Dummies...yeah I know not very original.

Would appreciate advise on how to move from Auto Mode and which camera to upgrade to the D5100 or D7000 or wait for the D5200.
