I have a budget of 30k I am confused between a mirror less slr Sony alpha 3500 and slr nikon D3200. I am a beginner

Hi Sandeep, If you have a budget of 30k, then you might as well go for the Nikon D5200 (AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR II)   It is one of the best entry-level DSLRs which is very oriented towards beginner friendly models. Has an articulated LCD screen for better angles.  Competitive ISO performance which will help in low-light photography. 5fps continuous shooting speed.  24.1MP with CMOS sensor.
