That's a lot of camera for just hobby. You can get away with a bundle that has just about the same features but half the cost. A excellent camera I recommend is the cannon T4i. It's 1080p HD version video great megapixel count and very reasonably priced. It's fully modular DSLR with interchangeable lenses. It can be used from hobby to professional level. This is a little closer into what I would start with as an upgrade unless you plan on incorporating a little more than hobby level photography. Hope that helps.
