#2. "RE: Which Nikon?"
In response to In response to 1

Hi Rick. I have just been looking at more reviews. Does that mean you would rule out the 5100? I have been looking at more reviews since posting and the 5100 does seem to stick out a bit and looks like most of its idiosyncracies have been fixed in the 5200.

So, are the focus points worth it in the 5200? Gut feel is I probably wouldn't use them. Then there is the articulating screen - but I tend to use the viewfinder. And the interface on the 5200 looks a little better but I get the feeling that is just icing on the cake rather than a real benefit.

I handled both of them earlier and they felt very similar in the hand. And both much lighter than the D7000.

This is proving to be a difficult one for me. Anyone else any thoughts on why I should go for a 3200 rather than a 5100 or 5200? I think my head says the 3200 is the logical choice but that darn feature envy could come back and as you say Rick would potentially mean more money down the drain (just think of all things I could have bought if I hadn't kept changing cameras - and especially as I always tend to buy the "just released" cameras at a premium - OK maybe the 5200 is not a good idea then
