You miss the point completely.

Nikon will sell a ton of D3200, for the time being they will be able to court new DSLR and mirrorless buyers with a superior spec'd camera.

So from the corporate side there was not one thing wasted. To not release it and possibly lose sales to Canon, Sony, Panasonic etc. that would be a waste!

Is the D800 a waste because some lense are incable to resolve for the sensor?

Okay, sorry for the trollish title, but I'm a little surprised no one has pointed out that since the D3200 camera is an entry level camera, most users will pair it with cheapo kit lenses that will not fair well with so many megapixels highlighting their every optical flaw.

Not that I believe that or anything, just surprised that objection hasn't surfaced yet.
