As for outgrowing my current camera, i do a lot of macro photography, and the camera i have works "ok" for that but i want more, it cant focus on the things i want to shoot. Thus the reason i want something that can do interchangeable lenses.
The thought on the 5100 over the D3200 is in a large part, the back screen. I am finding myself with worse and worse eyesight every year, and i also like to use the camera at low or strange angles. The monitor on the back of the 5100 rotates in just about every way possible. The MP matters to an extent, but the ISO is important to me too.
I am a fan of the Nikon, mainly because im use to the settings i have, and i do like the quality i have been getting.
I would love everyone's input on my photos, i have been adding some to my 500px page.
I also love to take night shots, etc. I understand the lens is the key, but i cant use a lens until i get a body for it.. LOL. IT will be a long process, as i dont have a lot of "Extra" cash to spend on this "hobby". I am already spending a lot more then i ever thought i would.. LOL
Since i have issues with my right arm, i understand the "shaking" thing. I will be looking at lenses next, but probably not till next year, as i said, just dont have the spare $$$.
I keep hoping Nikon will drop a D5200 with the same sensor/MP as the 3200 they just dropped, but i dont know if i can hold out that long. LOL
Thanks again for all the excellent input!
