Which would be better for a newbie? D5100 or D3200?
Jul 10, 2012

TRying to decide which camera would be better for me as I'm just starting out. I like the flip out screen of the D5100 a lot, but I'm worried about all these "Focus problems" I hear about (Even saw it on a Target model that I tried). On the other hand, I like the 24MP of the D3200 a lot, but at the sacrifice of the flip screen. Anyone have any opinions on either camera and which would be better for someone who's just starting out?
