The D3200 gives you better high ISO and better detail than the D300s/D90 for a fraction of the price. Such a deal! Never used MLU for any macro. It's not needed.

I think well worth a read of this.

At the moment I'm still trying to get a D90 that can AF properly leaving that to one side...

The D3200 would be quite useless for me because
It renders my Metz high end flash useless for daylight fill in shots
It won't do CLS which the D90 can

The D3200 has a tiny VF even v my older penta mirror DSLR's actually smaller! The D90 VF is far far better in comparison
Handling and controls are not a patch on the D90 and higher bodies
The 12mp CMOS is enough resolution and DR for me and is still good at high ISO

I have no need for 24mp either and no small raw option

It's not just about the sensor, the D3200 sure I could use it for some would be less than idea for other types of work.
