If "one" does not understand controlling light, and depth of field with aperture and shutter speed to begin with . . . then any camera set on "A" is the "best" option for an amateur photographer.
I recall reading in the forums here, (my opinion too!) that the equipment "does not necessarily make the "photograph!""
Outstanding photographs are made every day with some of the most basic and cheapest camera's.
