#13. "RE: Best compact Nikon body in last 10 years?" In response to In response to 11
Congratulations on your new D3200. As stated above, even the kit 18-55mm VR is optically excellent. It is also very small and light. The Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G ED IF AF-S VR (discontinued) is optically better than any version of the AF 80-200mm f/2.8D ED though it defeats the purpose of having a small light body. The Latest Sigma and Tamron lenses 70-200mm f/2.8 have built in AM motors so they will work on the D3200. Like the Nikkor they are both large and heavy. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
