When it rains it pours Earlier this week my D5100 broke down, in live view mode it gives me a "shutter error" about half the time which I have to exit and re-enter live view mode to clear. In PDAF mode the central AF point front focuses like crazy on and off while the other AF points seem to be fine. Obviously I can't live with that, I need the camera to work all the time, not just now and again. Sending it in for repairs doesn't look like an option, it'll quickly end up costing too much to be worth it. Then today when I took out my D40 I found that it had apparently entered a suicide pact with the D5100. The AF motor is completely dead on it, none of my lenses will autofocus, but I can focus manually with the confirmation light coming on. I guess it's not that big a loss, the D40 was ancient anyway, but it would have let me at least have a DSLR in case I needed one. So now I have to figure out if I'm going to take the obvious route and pick up a D3200 body (around €350 locally), or sell off my DSLR lenses and accessories and go for something different. I wouldn't mind having a smaller system, both m43 and NEX has their advantages, but I don't think I'll be able to get the same image quality without spending a lot more. The bigger NEX models will probably deliver the same quality as the D3200, but I doubt any of the m43 will, not even the E-M5 or GX7. Another option would be to supplement my DP1M with a DP3M. Or I could just stick with the DP1M and RX100 until I find something I really need another camera for, but what fun would that be?
