I have the 3200 have had since Jan this year (had 3000 for two years before that).

here is a sample using a 10-24mm lens @ 11mm

I had to down sample from 300 DPI to 150 DPI and limit size to 5 x 7 in order to fit on "My Gallery" so the picture doesn't show as sharp as it really should.

Also I had to do Keystoning (Perspective correction) in post processing because of the Position I took photo in, in relation to position of the church.

The camera has one glaring fault (for me) that was I believe a design decision. The tick marks that show the focus points are so faint if you wear glasses like I do you can't get them focused, using the Diopter adjustment for eye-piece. On the D3000 they were very dark and obvious and you could easily adjust the eye piece for proper focus of eye piece. Other people may not have that issue.

Otherwise takes super pictures. In the hands of a Pro, I think pictures could be taken that rival those that use a high end DX format camera, or possibly a FX camera at ISO up to 1600. I'm sure when there is a need for 3200, 6400, 128000 the FX would win hands down.
