Engadget Summary

Nikon ups the ante for consumer DSLRs with the sub-$1,000 D5200, which includes a 24-megapixel sensor, articulated LCD, and very good low-light performance. Photography Blog calls it "a great all-round DSLR that's well-suited to a lot of different users and experience levels," citing its "compelling mix of excellent image quality, straight-forward handling and quick performance, all in a light and compact body." CNET UK likes the D5200's "excellent low-light performance" and says the camera "makes it easy to make the most of your photography, whatever the conditions." Despite the great image quality, the D5200 isn't the best camera for shooting video. Digital Versus also points out that, high megapixel count aside, it's "not very different from the D5100," its predecessor, which is still available for about $300 less.
