Default D3100 - Anyone unhappy?

I am looking at the D3100 package from Best Buy. It includes the Nikon D3100 with Nikkor 18-55 AF-S VR lens and Nikkor 55-300 AF-S VR lens. Is there anyone here that owns this package or just the D3100 and wishes they had made another decision?

I bought that package this weekend, mine came with a 200 though, not a 300 and I couldn't be happier.

Thanks gekko422 - is this your first dslr?

The package I am looking at comes with a 300. I really want that for baseball and softball photos.

Not unhappy with mine. I do find the autofocus for movie mode not very useful and since it only records in mono and that there is nothing to input for a stereo mic I just keep the sound off and put music of my choice to accompany the video. Also, no IR remote shooting. I got a Vivitar remote instead and it works extremely well. The remote also works with the D5000 and D90.

I just got mine about a week ago and no, I'm not unhappy. This is my first DSLR and I think it's great for my needs. For the price and features, you can't beat it. I researched several other cameras and kept coming back to the D3100, so that's what I ended up buying.

As mentioned above, there are things that it's lacking (IR remote, stereo input, etc) but they aren't deal breakers.
