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.

What I care about most is image quality. One hockey tournament I went to shoot I had a D7000 and my wife used our D300s. All things equal using identical 80-200 2.8 lenses, both cameras shooting at 1/1000th @ f2.8 and at ISO 3200 there was a very noticeable 'softness' to the images taken on the D300s compared to the D7000. The images taken on the D7000 just were sharper with more detail.

True, the build quality isn't the same on the D7000 - I had one that the shutter failed at about 30,000 actuations in (covered under warranty), but the low light performance and overall image quality and color reproduction (especially in low light) is superior on the D7000. That's what matters to me the most, pro-sumer or professional camera body or not.

Maybe I didn't word that right.
D7000 is an amazing camera. But imagine having just 10-12MP instead of 16 and being able to handle ISO 6400 with ease. I'd take that any day. And while the 16MP are not that much of a waste (possibly no waste at all with some gold ring lenses), I certainly can't say the same for the 24MP on this D5200.

No, no I agree with that all the way. 24+ MP and even 16 MP is wasted space on a memory card. You don't need that many MP to have great clarity on an image or ISO performance, etc. just as you say.

Meh, on the other hand, memory cards are cheap and storage space is abundant. And the higher MP counts help counteract Bayer softening.
