-----Crazy as it seems I have been thinking about getting a D3200 or D5200 to tide me over just so I can get some of that great IQ that the D200 is lacking.

Have any of you ever gone this direction or thought about this move? Then I am out only $500 and that small DSLR will be nice for travel (Though I might get a Sony RX100)

Or are you guys thinking DX is dead?

I might also get rid of my Fuji X100 - focus is soooo slow. I dont mind the fixed lense its that slow focus that sucks. A d3200 focus is not the same as a D200 but its faster and more accurate than a X100

(My lens collection is as follows (10.5 fish, 18-55vr, 18-70, 35 f2, 50 1.8, 105 2.8 VR, 180 2.8, 80-200 2.8, 70-200vr, 70-300, 1.4 and 2.0 TC) Yes I need something better on the wide as somehow I lost my 12-24 Tokina....

Any thoughts?


I'd suggest you get the D600, sell the 18-55vr, 18-70, and 80-200 2.8, and pick up a 24-70 f 2.8 or the 24-85vr and (if you want something really wide) a Sigma 12-24 4.5-5.6.
