I find PIC32 lots easier. The peripherals are similar, though setting up
the oscillator is a bit more complex. The added resources (RAM in
particular) makes development quicker. The PIC32 may be a bit more
expensive but relatively, particularly in the case of small scale
development, the added features, speed, and development features more than
makes up for it (IMO)

If you do stuff in C, the PIC32 is quite easy to use. Digging around in
assembly and linker scripts takes some getting used to. In general, as
I've started new projects, I first started with PIC16, then PIC18, then
PIC24H, and now am doing everythi8ng new with PIC32. I did do one recent
project with a pic18f24k something that runs at 64MHz since it was a
pretty small project.
