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.

honestly if you believe that D7000 is better camera than D300s I'm very surprised, very.

It is better in some ways, not quite so good in others. Build quality is lighter and the buffer is smaller. On the other hand, its sensor is clearly superior, and for those that care, the video implementation is much improved (though still not quite as good as some rivals, even less expensive options like the GH2). And if you're talking shooting convenience, the U1/U2 settings can be a major improvement over the D300/s.

I see your point :) D7000 just didn't cut it for me, I don't use video though and never had a need for custom settings - I'm old school, the only stuff I change is shutter speed/ISO/aperture/metering and occasionally WB :) I liked how quick AF was on D300s and didn't find AF of D7000 fast enough. D300s just worked all the time, just a work horse of a camera and could take a lot of abuse.

But then, times change and requirements change too. These days I use X100 and X-Pro1 from Fuji - not really known for blistering fast AF :D

But if I wanted pro-grade body for little money for shooting sports/reportage I think I'd still go for used D700 or if there would be a cheap one D3s ;)
