Here's where I disagree... The D3200 improvement seems to be minimal over the D7000, except when you factor in the additional 8mp's that the D3200 has (and the much lower price)...
The D5200 goes even farther.
Yes, on just the ISO (leaving mp's out of it) there hasn't been a "leap", but when these improvements are still forthcoming with a 24mp sensor, I think we're talking a significant advance.
My hunch, and it is only that, is, within reason, the D7100 will be even better than the D5200, on ALL counts, and with everything factored in, a good deal better than the D7000. It's a hope...
