#7. "RE: Best compact Nikon body in last 10 years?" In response to In response to 6 Wed 14-Nov-12 11:46 AM by John Bertotti
I love my d3200 and for me I wouldn't consider a 5100 instead. I would like a few more controls but the color depth and dynamic range of the D 3200 work very well for me. Had the D5200 been out I would have probably considered it as well. I love the larger mp as I can do a lot of tweaking and have gotten multiethnic shots out of o e pic just by cropping and still had pics I liked!
Edit to add; if I was in your shoes and had the resources I'm not sure I wouldn't go for a used D700. I always wanted that camera, great pictures, now with the 800&600 out I imagine the used prices are coming down but small it isn't, the D3200 is a great compact size.
