Second camera D3200 or Sony NEX 5N oppinions appreciated
Nov 15, 2012

Currently I own D300s and quiet a lot of lenses. Actually sometimes I think more than I need. I used m4/3 camera as smaller companion to D300s. And I also own compact XZ-1. But somehow I was never completely happy with m4/3 camera I had. And XZ-1, although it is capable for a compact camera, it lacks image quality and af speed can also be a problem. But I would still like to have lighter and smaller camera to take with me when D300 is too big and heavy. After checking latest prices I can purchase for more or less same amount bodies D3200, D5100 or Sony NEX 5N. IF I go with Nikon body, I already have lenses available. But I am not sure size/weight change will persuade me to take smaller camera with me more often. In case of Sony, I am not to keen to invest heavily in secondary system - so probably I will stick with kit lens. Since sony should have good high iso and very good sensor, I am not certain if kit lens is a limitation for lowish light photography... Sony has definitely size advantage. But I do have all needed lenses and then some for Nikon...

Decisions, decisions!
