I picked up a Nikon D3200, as much as I would have liked to spend thousands on the very best camera I just don't have the budget and to be honest this packs in quiet a bit for the price.
My only issue so far is that it doesnt have an internal auto focus motor so for my big 500mm lense I will have to attempt manual focus or try and just keep this with my D70 and hope for the best.
Here is a test shot I tried, shutter 1/60 so should improve in better light, unfortunately no birds at all around so found some buds around 7 mtrs away to try and focus on. Years of digiscoping have served me well :)

I am trying to get more into the landscape photography and macro so I think the D3200 will be great.
This is my first sample shot testing it with my macro adapter at x10 magnification.

I think it produces a nice sharp image and the colour looks nice considering it is really dull at the moment.
I'm now waiting for some decent light to see if manual focusing will be practical and if not I will see what can be done with the D70.
For now tho I think most of the image I will be posting will be landscape and macro which I am starting to really enjoy.
Let me know your thoughts on the photo and manual focusing.
