Looks like the trusty little D3100 may be up for replacement soon, with plenty more megapixels to boot.
If Nikon Rumors is right about the D3200, the entry-level DSLR will sport a 24MP APS-C CMOS sensor (most likely the same one we see in the Sony A77 and NEX-7). Other rumored specs are below.
Nikon D3200 Specs

- 4 fps
- ISO 100-6400 (expandable to ISO 12800)
- Improved video functionality
The Nikon D3100 is a great little camera. I’ll be interested to see what Nikon does with the processing for Sony’s 24MP sensor.
