The other camera I was thinking about buying was sold already but another might be available. What do you think about the Nikon d3000 dslr? I wants something easy to learn that will give better quality pictures than my Nikon 1 J1.

Thanks

The D3000 is the last body I would buy. I never liked the 10 meg sensor from Nikon and the D3000 doesn't have a focus drive for older lenses.
I would rather have a D40 [I do have one, though it doesn't have the focus drive either] or perhaps a D90.
I would even prefer the older D50 to a D3000.
I have a J1 as well, great little camera but as you say you could get better IQ with a DSLR.
