    Buy a used D3300. Some used prime lens. (35mm F1,8 , 50mm F1,8 a wideangel and a flash) No reasom to put the money in the camera, Theese lenses wil give you a the very best photos you can imagine, and they will last a lifetime. Upgrade the camera when you need it later. This is the way to go to gey a profesional starter kit at a low price. You cam make awesome photos on a cheap camera with quality lenses, but not on a expencive camera with shitty lenses. See the "Angry Phptpgrapher" for lens recomendation. However i rekomend autofocus lenses if you make photos of kids. Kids are difficoult to instruct, and you only get one chance to make thet photo, so autofocus in critical.

    I would suggest the D7100 with the 18-140mm dx and or the 35mm dx f/1.8.

    I like my Nikon D7100. 18 to 140 mm lens. Now that I have used it for a couple of years, the only thing I would change would be the lens. The 18-140 is great lens, but I would prefer the 18-200 mm. If I trade in my 18-140, the 18-200 should be around 175 dollars. Good used lens.

    Depends on what the course is. If this is an intro to photography course, it's probably best to learn on an SLR before moving to a DSLR or even a mirrorless. Assuming he understands photography, then the cameras like the D7100, A6000, or T6i are valid options.

    No M43 Love? I'd take a long hard look at an Em5 or EM10. M43 primes are great, and inexpensive.

    I think you would consider the Nikon D5500

    I'd go with a X-T10 with a XF 18-55mm kit lens its just under $1k.

    Reasons:…
    – Same image quality as the X-T1
    – Lots of dials for manual controls great for a learner
    – The kit lens is second to none
    – Arguably the best APSC sensor available

    Also the lenses for the X system are sublime.

    Primes:
    – XF 14mm f2.8
    – XF 16mm f1.4
    – XF 18mm f2.0
    – XF 23mm f1.4
    – XF 27mm f2.8
    – XF 35mm f1.4
    – XF 35mm F2.0
    – XF 56mm f1.2
    – XF 56mm f1.2 APD
    – XF 60mm f2.4
    – XF 90mm f2.0

    Zooms:
    – XF 10-24mm f4.0
    – XF 16-55mm f2.8
    – XF 18-55mm f2.8-40
    – XF 18-135mm f3.5-5.6
    – XF 50-140mm f2.8
    – XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8
    – XF 100-400mm f4.5-5.6

    If I had the money I would buy them all… Along with a X-Pro 2.

    The XF 16mm f1.4 and XF 56mm f1.2 are not only two of the best lenses Fujifilm has but are arguably two of the best lenses in those focal lengths that I and many others have ever used.

    I'd go for a used Fuji X-T1 with the excellent 18-55mm kit lens (f2.8 maximum aperture). Hard to beat this image quality for the money.

    Never underestimate the use of a flip out screen in photography! I'd trade the 7100's image quality for the t6i's screen

    You can buy the Sony A6000 plus a shitty lens and/or a shitty kit lens that comes with the camera for under a grand. You better have at least two thousand plus dollars if you want a decent lens. Sony loves to overcharge the customers on their cameras and related products.
