Someone from my nearby studio is offering DSLR Nikon 5300 with above two lenses, which is not much used. Price he’s quoting is 30k – is it a good deal for someone who need it to satisfy his photography hobby?
Thanks : )

This is beginner model and you can get this new in 35k range(with 1 lens).
Try bargaining on the price. Anything under 24k will be good deal.

Yes, infact it is more than a basic camera and good to start with, go ahead.
Im not in touch with the prices though.

Prices have increased. Nikon D5600 was available for a long time at 49k for dual lens kit. Now it’s 59k.

Thoroughly check the lens before buying for scratches and fungus. Also check shutter count & try to negotiate the price.

It will be my first DSLR (if the deal goes on the floor). Previously – I was thinking of savings for costlier mirrorless ones, but now considering this to have more idea about DSLRs. Kg+ : )

@flawlessking @cadence with your facts, I’m feeling – it’ll make a great deal under 24k.. no? Kg+ : )

Depends on condition but it will be a good kit to begin your DSLR journey.

Junk lens (both)
After couple of months you will want to get rid of them but there will be no takers :toungueout:
Not a good deal @ 30k
w/ high shutter count and  Obv No warranty (Its an 8 year old launch*).. not worth 20k Either (Single lens kit used to sell for <25k)

There was a time when D5100 with 18-55 lens at 35k used to be a sure shot FPD grinning
@oli.ferns759 used to post many D5100 deals
Good old days @anthrax.ut @bumblefoot @RDX

Yes indeed. But do check thoroughly before purchasing.
