#6. "RE: Best compact Nikon body in last 10 years?"

To add a little info ... at this point, I can tell that it is going to be a cost-benefit analysis for me. I can pick up the older camera bodies for next to nothing, and I can pick up a D3100 for substantially less than the D3200, so I'd appreciate any input as to what the real, everyday difference is among the bodies. For example, the 24 megapixels of the D3200 seems like overkill to me, at least for pics (maybe it's needed for the 1080p?) -- if that's right, it's not something that I am goingo to want to pay for that.

But sounds like the D3200 brings more realistic benefits to the table such as better higher ISO performance and deeper colors ... so at this point I am leaning towards the newer bodies, but maybe not the latest and greatest D3200. Maybe a 3100 or another newer body if it gives me most of what the D3200 has. The D90 (not a compact body, I know)and D5100 are part of that mix as well. From what I can see, the D5100 out-performs the D3200.
