That's a lot of pressure to put on the camera, as it's 99% the person holding the camera that makes the image, and you indicate you are a new enthusiast. If a new driver had trouble handling a Ferrari, it might well put them off cars, but it wouldn't be the technology at fault.

Nothing wrong with jumping into the DSLR level, but I would just get the Nikon 35/1.8, and shoot for a while... I would also get some personal instruction, which will greatly increase the likelihood that your results will be satisfying.

You could, in fact, get a used D200, take fantastic images, then decide from there which new DSLR and lenses make the most sense.
