Hi. I'm Steve and I will be assisting you today. I've been here since 2005.

*** Please note that I cannot take a call right now*** - the site is sending you those prompts, not me. If you need phone support, I can opt out and another expert will help you.

Ok, let's see what we can do here.

Assuming that you want to keep your Nikon lenses, get yourself a D3400. It is tiny compared to the D3 and D800 and while it has a less buttons, once you get the hang of working the menus, you will find it to be a delightful camera with great picture quality. I don't usually use megapixels as a measurement but the D3400 has twice the megapixels of the D3 and about the same density of pixels as the 800 (the 3400 is a crop frame vs the full frame of the 800).

The D3400 is half the weight of the D3.

Go to a camera store and try it out.

I'll be here if you need further help.
