carlos roncatti: Its time for Nikon give us some small primes to use with this kind of camera...no reason to use such small camera with big zooms...give us 28 and 35mm (35EQ)...and a portrait prime too....
where have you been? there is a nikon 35 1.8G and 1.4G. Also, 28 will be out soon.
forpetessake: Nikon is making this camera for whom exactly? It's an entry-level camera, which can appeal only to upgrading point-and-shooters, or those with similar older DSLRs. But for those people there are much better options nowadays: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304444604577342094118995830.html
@forpettesake...good god, I just hope I didn't read what you just said. You said you used to shoot DSLR's and you make all these gibberish DSLR statements??? In very bright situation, a POS camera will match af with any DSLR anytime anyplace but in low light, I guarantee you, DSLR will beat MILC by a mile. If want to discuss sensors, check out DXOMark..why is a 3 year old DSLR D3000 have a better score than the J1 which was just released LAST YEAR??? Again, performance and ergonomics in DSLR's are more advance. So what if Nikon buys sensor from Sony? Honda bought Toyota's engine blueprint on all their hybrids. That doesn't mean they don't know what they are doing. They know their limitations and know where they are good at.
micarr: I browsed someones work and its nothing special, its just like point and shoot photo taken with an expensive gear. I can say photo quality is good because of good camera specs.I aslo saw some work of photographers shooting with the old Nikon D40 camera but the results have the wow factor. :-)
I'm just a photography beginner in the sense that there is a lifetime road to travel ahead.
Yes, the most advanced DSLR's are expensive but still depends on the photographer. It does however, just like any tools and the more you have it makes your life easier.
Here we go again with your MILC is superior than basic DSLR statement. I have told you below that the most advanced MILC cannot and will never match the most basic entry level DSLR performance-wise. Why don't you provide arguments why we should choose MILC over DSLR's? To answer your question who this is suited for? Mom's and Pops who likes to crop the heck out of every photos, DSLR users who want to travel light and newbies in the DSLR world.
snegron: So, who is this camera aimed for? What is the target audience? Cool wireless technology alone doesn't guarantee high quality images.
it's target are the moms and pops of the world that likes to stick with the kit lens and crop the heck out of every photos.
JPHickey: I've taken gallery quality photographs with my Nikon 5200 (12.1 MP), because I always have it with me. Convenient that it has image stabilization, of course.
On the other hand, I bought my first Nikon F Photomic in 1964 with the f1.4 lens, when visiting the Olympics in Tokyo. Over the years I enjoyed various Nikon cameras, and ever an Olympus now and then.
I've loved film photography, I migrated to digital around 2000, and I still use the original Fuji S2 in my studio. However, probably because I've enjoyed painting with acrylics for years (for enjoyment, not serious sales), a digital photo is the raw material to develop and satisfy some sort of intuitive vision. Most viewers see the result as being a fine, though I may have spent hours diddling around with it. Or sometimes I'll just go on ahead and create something more artistic. I may even end up with several versions (a labor of love).
Considering my approach, the more megapixels the merrier! Creativity breaks the rules!
D5200 does not have in body IS. Heck, Nikon does not even have IS, they have VR. Lol!
fayez89: Does nikon d3200 has built in focus motor?
no, if it does then the price would be higher.
forpetessake: DSLRs is a dying breed. Nikon should focus their attention on mirrorless market before it's too late.
@forpetessake, do you even know what you are yapping about? The more you open your mouth, the more naive you sound. If price is your only reasoning for the death of the DSLR's then you need to do more research. The best MILC can't and will never match the most basic DSLR performance-wise. Do me a favor and read up on crop factors, ISO's, ergonomics, buffer, hdr, etc...and you will realize that DSLR's will never go away. As MILC improves it's technology overtime, so will DSLR's!
Yeah, keep on dreaming. There are places for each types but mirrorless will never replace or even match DSLR's technology.
