The Nikon D3200 with all its advanced features and technology is a steal at a retail price of under $700. If you are not very picky about the cosmetic details of the body then you will be more than impressed with this camera. If you are looking for your first DSLR, I would absolutely recommend the Nikon D3200 to be your top contender. You will not find the combined mix of excellent features from any other camera in this price range. If you're looking to start shooting sports or wildlife I recommend upgrading the stock lens to a new telephoto such as the Nikon 55-300mm Lens.
