NIKON D5000 series for beginner entry level

Is it worth to go for NIKON 5000 series vs 3000 Series for beginner entry level ? I was re searching on the various 5000 Series e.g 5300/5600 , But cannot make up my mind. the 3000 series seem a lot cheaper.

where is also the best place or shop to get a DSLR locally in SG . online shopping site e.g LAZADA.com seem to have good prices on DSLR.

Any recommendations ? Budget should be no more than SGD $800

if budget is not an issue, the D5000 series, say the D5600 has the articulating screen. and is easier for beginner....

in addition, it has more connectivity features like wifi, Bluetooth, NFC, etc

if it is, then the D3000 series, say the D3300 would be good enough.

I would recommend getting either the D3000 series or go straight to the highest end say D500 or D7500

based on the Standard lens kit, D3000 series is in the 500+ range, compared to D5300 / 5600 is in the 800+ range. Any good shops to recommend.

There are many shops available.

In Singapore, I usually go to these few shops (not in any order)

a) MS Color
b) SLR Revolution
c) TK Foto
d) Bally Electronics
e) Alan Photo
f) Orient Photo
g) Cathay Photo

Don't get and save your $.
The standard kit lens will likely kill your interest because of the short zoom range and usually, lack of sharpness.
