Thanks for the quick responses everyone
I'm still a little torn. I don't know how serious he's going to be with it, and I think he would probably use the video on the 3100, but I like the controls better on the D200... too many choices. I could go with the D300s and have it as a backup for myself
Excellant reason for the D3100... the video, kids today really like to use video. Also, the IQ on the D3100 is much better than the D200, so he will get better shots generally speaking with greater DR. You aren't spending much money, and if the interest level grows, you can then upgrade to a D7000 or so. I had the D200, and it was a great camera in it's day....
Another thought... you might consider the D5100, I think it has better IQ and also it has the back LCD that articulates... a fun feature that he might enjoy using.
