d3200 it shall be. If I don't need max mp, I can dial it down.
In 1974, I went to buy a component stereo. The salesman said spend more than you planned, and you'll be happier with it longer. I still have that receiver. Wouldn't trade it, now. It has capabilities you can't find on modern receivers, e.g. turntable support.
I'll defer lense consideration. I'll go with whatever "kit" lense Clem's has tacked onto it, and use that until I get a good idea of what I REALLY need. If I'm going to spend $500 - $1,000 for a lense, I want to make SURE I NEED what it has.
When I get a clue, I'll start a new thread, and haunt it.
PLEASE! ANYONE who has a d3200, what's the look and feel like, to you? In "M" mode, how cumbersome is it to make adjustments? Do yoiu use/like "P" mode?
