All the specs but no details on price or availability :(

It's only been a few months since we talked about the last new D-SLR from Nikon. Back in September, Nikon unveiled a new D600 D-SLR camera, and today the company is back with the D5200. 

The D5200 has a 24.1-megapixel imaging sensor and is capable of shooting high-quality digital images and recording full HD resolution movies. The camera also uses the new Nikon EXPEED 3 image processor promising high-speed operation and rich color reproduction along with enhanced movie recording capabilities.


The camera supports an ISO range of 100-6400 that can be extended to 25,600. The D5200 has the same autofocus system (39-points and nine cross-type sensors), metering sensor, and scene recognition capabilities of the high-end Nikon D7000. The camera features a three-inch vari-angle LCD that can be swiveled for comfort no matter what position you're taking images in.

The D5200 also supports wireless connectivity with Apple or Android smartphones using an optional wireless mobile adapter, and it can geo-tag images when used with the optional GPS unit.


Marina Gurevich, Product Manager for Nikon Europe, says, “The inspiring Nikon D5200 is ideal for those who are passionate about photography and want to experiment with the camera’s superior features. The impressive image and movie quality alongside a versatile vari-angle LCD monitor lets users unlock their creative potential.”

Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.

It always cracks me up seeing these types of comments. Sure the image sensor in the camera body makes a difference but blanket statements like this can't seriously be made. Other more important factors to this are what you are trying to shoot, what your shutter speed and aperture are at, and exactly how much ambient light you have.


Yeah, well, for APS-C shooters, you can pretty much guarantee they won't be hauling around a bag of f1.4 lenses. Shutter speed is also limited if you don't like blurry images. Therefore high ISO performance is pretty darn important.

The thing that puzzles me is that a lower resolution sensor using today's technology would not only be better at high iso, but it also be cheaper to produce. The D4 is "only" 16MP, why not make something similar for APS-C?

D700 is the answer - still in my mind the best digital SLR ever made, period.
