Just pick one under your price range. It's not the camera that dictates how good your photos are. I've gotten DDs on photos that have been taken with DSLRs that are under $200 market value, and publications with "outdated" cameras. :p I've even had my photos used in some films as set styling props before that were also taken with cheapo cameras. 

 

I know I probably sound like a broken record, but when it comes to buying your first camera, take a risk. Buy something cheap, and see how well you handle it. If you think the better your camera is, the better your photos will be you won't get anywhere with your artistry, let alone the photographic industry. Go cheap. If it doesn't work out, at least you didn't waste any more money than you had to :)

Buy a Nikon D3200. A fuckton of lens compatibility and it's from a trusted brand. Don't buy none of that pentax shit. 

 

The D3200 is 330€ bundled with a great VR 18 - 55 mm lens and you will have enough leftover for some lens, macro or some shit

//Oookay, I'm lost.I'm still between  Pentax K-50 + Tamron 18-200mm or  Nikon D3200.

Stats for Pentax K-50 seems to be a bit better or not?Aaand I could borrow lenses and tripods for the camera + extra battery from a friend.

I'M LOST.

Nikon D3200 + 40mm.
You have one of the best entry-level DSLR's for just €300 and you've got a macro lens with a focal length equivalent to 60mm.

For a neutral comparison: http://www.dxomark.c...D3200___890_801

Regarding the lens, you said that you want "good quality photos"?
Then, a kit lens with such a long zoom range is the worst thing you can do, those lenses are usually the most unsharp lenses existing.
A concrete example: the Tamron AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 XR Di-II LD ASPHERICAL (IF) MACRO pentax mounted on the Pentax K-50 would have a sharpness value of 4 P-Mpix, whereas the Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G mounted on the Nikon D3200 would have a sharpness value of 12 P-Mpix, which is an enormous difference, to say the least.

Ok, it's decided :D
 

But...I know nothing about lenses.I don't know if I should buy Nikon D3200 + Tamron 18-200mm or Nikon D3200 + 18-55mm VR II Black KIT (And i'd get a 16GB SD card aswell)

 

Neevermind, did a little bit of a reasearch.

Going with the tamron 18-200mm lens so I could make macro photos aswell. :)
Thanks guys :)
