I have personally never used Portus Digital and am waiting at checkout. Can anybody with experience weigh in as somebody has voted this cold already.

You won't get nikon cashbook on a grey import.

Buy a grey import by all means, but I'd recommend panamoz, hdew or digitalrev

I don’t see the point in this camera. Not much of a difference over the D5300 and D5500.
At this price I’d rather look for a used D7200 or a D7100 with lens.

I'd rather get a d3300/d3400 and spent the money on lenses rather than D5*00

Raid point. The 2 command wheels on the D7*00 are handy though

Im not a big fan of refurbs/used, I fancy the snapbridge and touch screen. HDew have the D5600 plus lens at 539.

I've used Portus before, seemed ok at the time. I just bought a D7200 from Tech in the basket for £575, body only I should add. I used PayPal credit and received 4 months 0% credit also.

AFAIK this has the focus motor back in the camera which allows you to use older lenses - wonder if it suffers from the same shutter/mirror sticking issues that plague other models

I’ve got a D610 and had a D7000 prior to that. I’ve owned 1 D series lens that warranted the AF in the body.
It’s really not a selling point anymore.

I have a good few D lenses, used to use them on my D50, have been keeping an eye on this coming down in price to replace my D5100 (which suffers from the shutter/mirror sticking problem)

The difference is you have lenses that fit your camera, released about 8 years ago.
Af-s lenses are a lot more common place and cheaper than they were.
Seriously if you want to upgrade your D5100 look to D7*00 used.

Na I really like the articulated screen of the D5100 (why I bought it)

E-Infini are a fantastic company with excellent reviews. They're doing this for £479.

I personally bought the D5500 from them as it was about £100 cheaper at the time and is virtually the same camera.

Very good price! Review's for E-Infinity looks good on Reddit and other sources. I'm weighing up the 1year warranty Vs the 3 year warranty with HDew

Touch wood nothing goes wrong but I felt pretty confident with the build quality of the camera so reckon the 1 year was enough, especially as the camera was quite cheap to begin with.

Whichever retailer you go with, don't hesitate as the D5500/5600 is a brilliant little thing. Oh and one other thing, I also encourage you to get the Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens (under £150) if you want great night shots and bokeh portraits. If you want to get a good wide lens for a cheapish price the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 is also pretty good for <£300 on Einfini.

If you are talking about the D5600, it definitely doesn't have the AF motor back in the body.

"I also encourage you to get the Nikon 50mm 1.8 lens (under £150) if you want great night shots and bokeh portraits" , well maybe . . . but I would say the 35mm 1.8 is more useful at similar price - KR likes his a lot.

The 35mm doesn't do bokeh well hence my comment above. Additionally the 50mm is also compatible with a full frame camera so is a better long term investment, however the 35mm is a good all rounder if bokeh isn't your thing.

The 5600 has nice articulating touch screen, much lighter than 7xxx series and smaller and also supports nfc/wifi. Its not really a bad upgrade from 5100.

Last month I sold my 5100 which had served me great for 4 years and wanted to upgrade to d5600 but didn’t find any cheap offers. I had posted this deal for 5600 when someone commented about the Lumix Panasonic fz1000 which tbh I am quiet liking it as I am not really into professional photography and I love the long zoom range it provides. Its a decent all in one camera. Though not great for low light, but it offers same articulating screen and remote use through your smart phone which is so handy to click photos in low light as it avoids camera shake.
