I have a D200 and Fuji X100. I love the X100 images but honestly the slow focus is a killer. After shooting with it for awhile I went back to the D200 and wow, that faster focus is huge in getting the right shot. But highlights get blown EASILY with the D200

I have shot with a D3100 – focus was slow…. Is the D3200 faster?

D7000 seems to have faster focus (I shoot sports also—with 70-200vr)

But in the end, the D3200 seems to be about $400 cheaper and seems to have a better sensor. So if I buy a D7000 I get better focus but pay more and get a step down on the sensor?

Would you guys see it the same way?

Main glass I shoot with is… surprisingly good 18-55vr, 35 f2, 50 1.8, 105 2.8 vr, 70-200 2.8 vr, and even and some older glass like the 180 2.8 that wont work with the D3200. I will probably go out and get a wide but that should not change the decision much

So the D3200 as a cheap stop gap – anyone else do it?

You seem to have already analysed the situation a lot. I myself would not buy either of those cameras, and I do have a D200 ...

I'd wait to see what else Nikon has to offer.
