I am thinking of buying this camera, own a Panasonic TZ20 but want to upgrade to a better camera. I need a viewfinder as I find it a lot easier to take pictures when in bright sunlight.

My hubby owns the SONY SLT A57 but so heavy and bulky?? Would purchasing the NIKON D3200 be a waste of time and money?? I used to love my Panasonic FZ10 but large zoom but now camera is way outdated.

What I want in a camera -

Reasonable zoom


Nothing too bulky

Easy to use

Often shoot in auto mode.

Nothing over $600 Aus



The D3200 would be one option, but for your budget, I think the D5100 would be more realistic.

The D5100 gives you a few extra features as well and is somewhat of a bargain at the moment.

always telling people to buy D5100 because that is what he has.
