Hello everyone

I am new to this site. I currently own a D3400. I got that bundle deal with 2 lens.

I am looking to get another camera. I can get a d5100 with 2 lens or another d3400 body only for the same price.

Which should i get?

Thank you

Unless the lenses compliment the lenses you have, no need to get the lenses so the body would be my choice of the two you offered. 


Do you find a need for a second body?  Unless you need a second body, I think I would look to purchase new lenses - either to upgrade your current kit lenses or to add to your capabilities with a low light lens or perhaps a lens with a different focal length.
