Re: About to buy camera for wife

I would recommend the D3200 over the D5100.  I cannot speak for the T3i as I have not used it.  However, the D3200 is better ergonomically, lighter and smaller than the D5100.  Probably more suitable for your wife.

The D3200 is more encouraging to bring with you and less bulky.  I have used both cameras quite frequently, but prefer the D3200.  Its image quality is outstanding and controls are similar to the recent released Nikon FX DSLRs of 2012.

I have written a brief Nikon D3200 Review: http://www.btobey.com/nikon/d3200-review.php

Take a quick browse through it before you head to the store.

Good luck!
