"D3300?"
Wed 18-Dec-13 04:16 PM by Daymon55

Hi All,

I'm having a last minute Christmas Present dilema for my wife,
I'm very tempted to get her a D3200 with kit lens (£300) though we had said this year we wouldn't really buy presents but after seeing some pictures she took yesterday with an old fuji finepix I am very tempted to get her an upgrade.

Now the dilema is with the impending arrival (rumour?) of the D3300 on the way plus having a newer VR 18-55 lens as part of the bundle should I wait.

Has anyone heard of a planed release date or price for the D3300? I'm tempted to wait to see what happens with this model as the release may also knock a little off the price of the D3200.

Suggestion - you're better off taking advantage of any price savings on current inventory, including the D3100 (which in the long scheme, is as good as the follow-on), and put the extra money back in the bank or in accessories, such as an extra battery, Speedlight, etc. There really isn't going to be a big jump in-between these models.

The only advantage I could see, is that it would be similar to the 5300 addons Built in WiFi and Built satellite location.

Wood those features be an advantage. You would need those features.

Hi Daymon,

One thing is certain; the D3300 will be priced higher than the D3200. At least for the first six months to year after it is introduced.
Especially now, since the D3200 is selling at a significant discount. The higher price for the new model will keep the discounts on the D3200 at or near the current price point.

Best Regards,
Marty

Best advise I can give you is get "Hands On".

You might also take your SD card and lens, so you can Pixel Peep the images you took in the store.

If it feels good in your hands and has all the controls you need, get it.
The D3300 will only be better at High ISO, but may also have a better LCD.
The D5300 with Expeed 4 sure is!

We really have no idea what will differ between the D3200 and any future "D3300".

Yes, Brian
That is why we have to wait to get "Hands On".

I have also been looking at this and thinking/hoping prices on "lesser" models come down. I have an EM 35mm but have been looking at the 3100 or 3200 kit with tax refunds, so not till April or so. The 3100 is cheaper price but doesn't seem to be much difference as compared to 3200, the latter is also more expensive, but the 3200 comes in that awesome dark red color!

I want to get the d3300 but worry about lenses? Does it require all new lenses to work?

AF-S NIKKOR 35mm f/1.8G will be $500+

Will the older cheaper $200 1.8 lens work too?

If i have to buy $1500 new lenses + camera. 1500 + 646 = 2140. It might be better to upgrade to a professional camera. Not sure.

Not sure exactly what you are asking here by "work".

Like the rest of the D3xxx line, the D3300 has no auto-focus motor in the body, so the lenses need the auto-focus motor in them (AF-S), else you have to do manual focusing.

To get an AF motor in the camera, you need to use a D7xxx body or better.

All the modern AF-S and AF lenses will meter fine.
