Worth buying D3200 over D3100? Anyone owns both? Care to comment on it?

Anyone here owned both Nikon D3100 and D3200?  I'm thinking about pickup a used d3100/d3200 for the lovely Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 G.  There is about a $150 ~ $200 premium for a used D3200 over D3100.

1. Is D3200 worth the premium over D3100?

Looking @ImageResource studio shots.  D3100 has superior iso3200/6400 than d3200. But I find d3100 low-resolution 230K LCD horrible.

I don't care much for Mega-Pixel, so 24mp is not a selling point for me, but I really like D3200 fabulous 920K 3" LCD.

So basically, I'm trying to figure out if paying $150~200 more for a D3200 is worth it just for the LCD?

Or are there other FEATURE that d3200 has over d3100 I'm not aware off to justified the premium.

I just got back from Best Buy play testing both camera.

D3100 feel very compare to d3200 (startup, image acquistion speed, flipping through menu speed) is this normal?

Any one here owned both of these camera???

Thx in advance for any input
