First, let me say I don't have experience of the D3300, but I do have a D3200.

However, the upgrades seem to be modest. I don't think that it has the anti-aliasing filter, but the D3200 is sharp enough anyway, with the accuracy of the autofocus and the quality of lenses having a greater impact. I think that, in your case, the sensor might outresolve the lens on all but your 35. Not that the other lenses have a problem - they're quite OK, but the camera has a lot of definition built in already.

The best advice I saw some time ago was to update on alternate models. But having said that, I still enjoy my D40!!!

In summary, I found the D800 a step up, but my APSC cameras deliver very similar results to each other. Then again, you have to go very large to see the benefits of a D800 over APSC in practical terms.

Thanks.
I think the d3300 is kind of not need given what I read online-not much difference bar a good price tag
I dont think I need to get a new camera yet. How ever my dad has seen how good the results can be with my d3200 compared to his high zoom compact camera. (That he now hates as he can never get a good pictures of any think that moves)in the event I I let him have my camera (body only) what do u think would b a good replace ment for me. ?

The D3200 is on special now the D3300 has appeared . . . . .

Otherwise a D7100. Very similar image quality but handling and features are better.

The lowest-spec'ed cameras in each manufacturer's line are updated so often, I see little reason to upgrade each generation, while remaining at the lowest-spec'ed level. Why not move up a level?

Even at the semi-pro level, neither of my mentors believes in necessarily buying new each generation. One of those mentors is my wife; she is wanting her D7000 to last through 2015, and sees no logical reason to get a D7100, even as a second body. (She has a D70s that can act as a back-up body, and has access to her employer's pool of D200 and D300 cameras, if her D7000 fails while she is at work. She is a forensic investigator for the county Medical Examiner.)

In the Nikon line, only the Pro DX category, represented by the D300s, is significantly in need of an upgrade, and it is actually not clear whether Nikon wants to keep that part of their line going, perhaps wanting to steer their customers toward the D7100 or FX.

I get ya. If and when I upgrade I want to go full frame....

Im just curious as to how it compares to my d3200. To me the d3300 seems costly given its lack of difference to the d3200. Its got better screen and its expeed 4 n I think thats it.

I imagine one would upgrade when the current camera does not perform as you want it to. My D40x took great shots, only problem was I had to go through menus to change things, the reason for my upgrade.


Cheers
