Thom's Full Review of the D3200

Thom does not have an eBook on the D3200 and does not plan on having one.

Thom's quick takes:

  • Low price, but high image quality
  • Solid video capability, though lots of wobble on motion
  • Mostly plastic
  • Features missing (bracketing, DOF Preview, mirror up)
  • Must use AF-S lenses! 
  • Guide mode doesn't do a lot of guiding
