For anyone starting off in photography their first thought is to spend all their money and get the best camera they can afford (in some cases more than they can afford). Slow it down and rethink your next move. It might be a smart idea to not spend it all in one place. Your super duper uber amazing 8+fps, high iso, full frame camera is not going to just hand out amazing quality images. You are going to also need a good lens or two... or three.
For your first camera it is probably a smart idea to start off with an entry level camera (or the next step up), and use the extra money on a good fast lens. In my case I started off with my Nikon D3100 and soon after picked up a Nikon 35mm f1.8, and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. The 35mm lens is not only a great focal length, but it also teaches you to get into the action and really think about your composition. Since the D3100 is not the best at shooting in low light situations on its own, having this lens with a large aperture helps make up its lack in high iso performance. Eventually I will outgrow my camera but I will never outgrow a lens.
For anyone using a Nikon right now is a perfect chance to pick up some decent glass. Nikon is currently running a lens rebate program. Hurry and hop on these offers before time runs out. Personally I'm eyeballing the 85mm f1.8g.
