Hi all, I have a chequered history with cameras - I tend to keep on changing thinking the next will be better for me. And here I am again...
I have had D60, D90, D7000, J1 and now V1.
D60 was fine but I got feature envy. D90 was fine but again that feature envy kicked in. D7000 was a stunning camera, everything I could want but I wasn't taking it out because it was too big and heavy. J1 was new and different but no viewfinder. V1 - now got the viewfinder but it is just not as good as an SLR.
So, here I am. I want to go back to an SLR. Don't want the bulk of a D7000. Don't use the features despite the fact it has so many wonderful options...
So, I am now looking at D3200, D5100 and D5200. I would go straight to the D5200 but it is twice the price of the other 2 and I don't think it does enough to be worth it.
The camera will priamrily be used for photos on holidays and occasional other use. No matter how much I thought I would I just don't do loads of photography at home.
So, looking for a nice carry around camera (I have a 35mm prime and the 18-200VRII to go with it that I kept from before).
Would you get the D3200 for the extra MP and newer engine, the D5100 for articulating screen or pay twice the price for a D5200 with the higher MP, articulating screen and the extra focus points?
I am leaning towards the D3200 as they are under 400GBP at the moment (about the same price as the D5100).
PS - I don't shoot video so really don't care about HD video, stereo sound, etc.
