Welcome to Nikonians! The D3200 is significantly more capable than even the Pro film bodies back in the 1990's. It has excellent resolution and dynamic range, greatly improved over the preveous generation of DSLR bodies. While it does have limitations such as, no sub-command dial, and dedicated buttons to quickly change settings without having to go through the camera menu. This might slow you down a little but unless you shoot sports or action, it shouldn't be too much of an issue.
