Just received the D3200 today to add to my Nikon collection...D2X, D700 and D7000.

I guess I'm a sucker because I wanted a small, light, inexpensive body with decent IQ. I also wanted something I can let my 11 year old son shoot while I bring out the big guns...

Testing it today, I have to say it's a winner. In fact, I am amazed at what I am getting for the price.

But, but, but, how can you take photos at all with out depth of field preview and exposure bracketing? Don't you know that a bottom of the line DSLR is virtually useless without those very, very heavily used features? How in the world could a beginner learn anything at all about photography without using DOF preview and exposure bracketing on all of their shots?

It is indeed a very nice, inexpensive, light weight camera. I'm seriously thinking about getting one with a wrist strap to use with some small primes when I'm taking hikes this summer.
