Re: Second camera D3200 or Sony NEX 5N oppinions appreciated

I did exactly as you are proposing - with the D3200.  I already had the 18-200 lens and, together, they make an ideal lightweight combo.

I have also used it with the 70-200 VR1 and 17-55mm, and the results are stunning.

Some people will try to convince you that this entry-level camera is underspec'd and that you should consider the D5200.  Not me!

The only slight annoyance is that manual aperture shares the shutter jog wheel whilst depressing a button near the shutter release.  It's no deal breaker, but it does need time to get used to.
