Default New Camera


I am in the market for a new camera to take good, high quality photos. I currently have an older nikon D7, at least ten years old and it is not very user friendly and there are too many settings/options for the wife to feel comfortable taking pictures with it. Any recommendations for something that is user friendly but will yield professional quality photos? My budget would be under $1000.

Are you looking for compact, sub compact or full DSLR?

For that kind of money you could get a Nikon D5200 and 2 lenses

I have a leica point and shoot. It works great. However I still end up using the cell phone most of the time.
