I'm just a Nikon girl living in a Canon world 😌 I put high hopes into this model. When I was brand new to the photography scene, my husband and I spent HOURS in stores looking at every model available. Comparing specs, weighing prices, considering capabilities, studying warranties should something go wrong. The very first camera I picked up was a Nikon, and it was over. I just fell in love with it. So here we are, D3200. I have a strong love/hate relationship with this one. If you're a novice, amateur, beginner, whichever title you prefer-stay put. This is your guy. If you've grauated to experienced or professional-close your eyes and back out of this screen. This is not the one for you...it'll make your word choices colorful. Leading with the elephant in the room-yes, it's quality is worth the price of packages, again, if you're new to it. It's super user-friendly, controls are easy to use, it has a "guide" option to assist you during initial navigation. Megapixels are awesome, the body fits comfortably in your hand and it's lightweight. Looking at it-It's gorgeous. It has a mic, which is awesome if you're in the mood to shoot a video. The lens options are where it starts to get sticky. Nikon has made some decision with lenses that make absolutely no sense to me. This guy won't autofocus with certain lenses, and that's extremely frustrating because, of course, it doesn't warn you or anything. You have to either find out the hard way or be warned ahead of time by a review. I don't want to get nitpicky with it, because I truly like Nikon, so bottom line- Totally recommend it for hobbyists, not recommended for professionals.
