The D3200 is quite capable of taking nice pictures. My daughter has one and it’s a great little camera. If you decide to go with it, I’m sure you’ll enjoy using it and will find that it does a nice job. But if you’re serious about photography chances are you will want to eventually upgrade beyond that. If I were you I think I would keep learning all I could with the D70 and keep saving money. You can buy a refurbished D7100 directly from Nikon for $599.95. I have a D7100 and I feel it is well worth the extra money over a D3200.
