Tarquin, Sidmouth Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I purchased the body only so I could buy two lenses I really wanted. A Nikon 55 - 200 zoom lens and a Nikon AF-S 50 mm prime lens. Total price around £600. I have big hands and was worried they were too Shriek like for the 3200. No problems.
I was afraid to take the plunge for a good digital having acquired a museum collection of Canon A1 film SLRs and lenses.
Having used the camera over the last month. Can only say brilliant.
I could write War & Peace reviews but for me its great.

Mark, Sawbridgeworth Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Having used a D50 for a number of years, I recently upgraded to the D3200. As you would expect from a Nikon, the build quality is excellent and the camera can be as simple as point and shoot or as creative as you wish.

In many ways it is simply an upgraded D50 but the difference in quality is remarkable and so far I have found it to be superb. The reduction in weight is particularly noticeable and makes a huge difference. If it is half as good as the D50 then you will have bought a very able and reliable camera indeed.
Bad points:
None so far - nor am I expecting any.
