    I've been searching around for my first DSLR for a while now and think I prefer the feel of the Nikons.
    Im unsure of which model to buy, the D3100 or D3000.

    John lewis is selling the D3100 for £429 (£40 cashback)

    The D3000 seems to be going for roughly £340 in most places.

    Im very tempted by the more up to date one but is it worth it?

    Thanks

    By far. The D3100 is a huge improvement over the D3000.

    I have a D3000, and it's a fine camera. Very basic, but it does everything that an entry-level DSLR should do. Only really annoying thing is the lack of live view, but that will just force you to get used to viewfinders anyway

    I believe the D3100 is a lot better than the D3000. I would get one of those, with a 35mm f/1.8!

    Absolutely correct. Go for the 3100, even because I think the 3000 is being put off production.
