Have a V1 & D90, pondering my next move..

Dear all,

I have a V1 that I really like (great IQ up until ISO 800 in color, BW up to 1600 but that's based on my taste) and I do love that lightning fast af. I also sport an old but low-ISO sweet D90.

Now, what's my next move? I need the following:

1. One little camera that basically follows me around. Normal to fast AF is a prerequisite. Normal but not class leading clarity in high ISO is considered a bonus.

2. A solid DSLR or other system where primes, zooms etc are in play i.e. an interchangable lens camera. Not going for less than APS-C (my apologies, all of you micro-4/3rd guys, this is just a reflection of taste, not sound rationale). Super ISO 3200 IQ needed.

I have a ton of NIKKOR's at home.

My next move?

I'd love a Fujifilm X100s and D7100 or D610 combo but I can't afford it.

NOW, here's what I'm thinking: just checked the low ISO spec's and raw images of a Nikon D3200, and was stunned how much better a ISO 3200 image was compared to my V1 or D90 (yes, I know, take it easy, there's a couple of generations of/or sensor sizes to take into consideration).

Why not go for the new D3300? Its small and portable, it beats the crap out of my D90 on almost everything, I can re-use my AFS primes (incl. the lonely 35 mm DX), and it blows my V1 out of the water IQ wise.

What do you say guys?
