I have a D3100 and it is an excellent camera. The single thing that I would wish for in it is better high ISO performance. Having that higher ISO will let you get hand-held shots that would not otherwise be possible. So if the D3200 has better ISO performance, it is worth a reasonable price premium.

Check at places like Costco for best pricing. I got the D3100, 18-55 lens, a 55-200 lens, a nice bag, and a decent size SD card, for the price many places were getting for the body alone.

I am not upgrading at this point, since I've only had my D3100 about a year. I don't plan to upgrade until I feel that my skills have outgrown the camera, which is going to be quite a while, LOL. When I do upgrade, it will be to whatever is the next big step up.

Of course "800E" is calling my name, LOL... but not going to happen.
