As the offer is for today only, so, request quick replies.
Can you please tell how much discount are you getting for nikkon D3200 with 18-55 Lens ?
How much is the total cost of camera with lens ?
I am asking this cause i was in same dilema few months back .
I was terribely consfused between Nikon D3200 and D5100 .
Anyways i zeroed in on D3200 .
Actually both are equally good cameras , but both of them have some advantages\disadvantages over each other
D32000 Advantages and Disadvantages for D5200 .
c. Siighly thinner
d. Low noise at lower ISO
e. Great Colour Depth
f. High resolution 24MP
g. D3200 had a guide mode
Disadvantages of D3200 and Advantages of D5200 :-
a. No incamera HDR in D3200 but present in D5200
b. No Incamera Panoramas in D3200 but present in D5200
c. 11 Autofocus points in D3200 while D5200 has 39 autofocus points
d. No flipout Screen in D3200 , but present in D5200 .
f. 4 fps in D3200 whereas 5 fps in D5200 .
g. ISO can be boosted upto 12800 for D3200 whereas for D5200 it can be done till 25600 .
If budget is a constraint then D3200 is best if not then D5200 .
But personally speaking , if one is well versed with using each and every feature of a DSLR then only one must
invest in an expensive one and justice is done to the gadget as well,cause most of the time what happens is that we all tend to flow through emotional bouts [INCLUDING ME ] , purchase expensive gadgets
which ultimately land up in our wall units
