Nikon D800
Nikon D3200

Overview with Ergonomics

While I vastly prefer the pro-grade bodies (Nikon D800, D3x, D3s), the small-bodied D3200 seemed like an attractive possibility for situations in which minimizing weight and bulk were priorities.

Accordingly, I thought that perhaps the 24-megapixel Nikon D3200 along with a pancake lens like the Voigtlander 20mm f/3.5 Color-Skopar SL-II might provide a good solution for cycling and similar active situations. The 20/3.5 proved to be a disappointment, so that combination was fruitless. But it didn’t matter, as it turns out that the D3200 has too many unacceptable flaws for my interests.

After trying the D3200, I am convinced that a camera like the Ricoh GXR or Sony NEX-7 is a far better option, and the wave of the future. Those cameras currently cost more than the about $699 Nikon D3200, but they are much more fun and efficient to use than the D3200, at least the way I like to shoot.
