European pre-order options for the new Nikon D5200 camera:
I AM | THE SAME PRICE AS THE D7000
The funny part is that even while being aware of that fact some people will still end up buying the D5200 over the D7000 because it’s the “newer” technology, even though the D7000 is still twice the camera.
The D5200 might have newer technology, but the D7000’s sensor is superior – at least with regards to noise performance.
If you say it enough times….
You can pretend you are right.
How do you know that? The D5200 sensor hasn’t been tested yet…
Imo the only thing the D5200 has going for it, when compared to the D7000, is its video mode.
I’d also say that the articulating screen is a good feature… although some might disagree, I think it’s great from a creative standpoint.
Indeed. There is absolutely no way I am going to buy an entry level camera at that price! And it is definitely an entry level camera, with a poor pentamirror viewfinder, no af-motor, no sealing. I can buy me Pentax K-30 with 18-55WR and 50-200WR instead and it won’t cost me more… That means I get a pentaprism VF, an AF-motor, sealing, and two sealed lenses without much of a tradeoff. Furthermore I could get almost two D5100’s for it. Understand my point? It’s not that I can’t afford it, it’s like I don’t want to afford it because it’s not worth it.
When we see the price for a D7100 or D400, the pricing of this might be more in-line with features/price unfortunately.
Actually, the D5200 has an ever higher price than the D7000 at some retailers in Germany.
If you are looking for a small and compact DSLR, the D5200 is a better option than the D7000.
And if you are looking for that then a OM-D beats both those cameras in every aspect.
not if you have nikon lenses
and if you don’t have either,
Nikon and their lenses are a better investment going forward
personally I would pick either this new d5200 or out going D7000
I use a D5100 for simple convenient travel camera
D5200 features D7000 chip
both are highly recomended
Except the OMD can’t focus track or do continous focus well. Maybe it is OK in the Studio with static subjects but even the old Nikon DX bodies beat it by a mile.
You’re comparing it to the current D7000 price, which are heavily discounted by now.
Anyway, there’s no US pricing yet. Historically, prices outside the US is higher.
I hope the D5200 will be in the US$900. They can’t price it too far from the D3200.
I’m expecting the D7x00 to be in the US$1200-1300 range. Then the D400(???) in the US1500-1700 range.
my guess US $ 900 D5200
there are other samples here http://www.nikon-image.com/products/camera/slr/digital/d5200/sample01.htm
WTH nikon seriously we need d300 replacement not d5100
I’m also not excited.
I’m lusting after a: D400/D7100 and a new 300/4 or 80-400 AF-S
Be patient it’s coming!
Nikon must now learn with canon..release fast and stabilized lenses….please nikon bring us the 35mm EQ for DX…soon…
Please no 24mm f/2.8 IS like Canon, PLEASE NO.
Please a 24mm f/1.8 DX and 18mm f/1.8 DX.
yes..we need it soon…but if im not mistaken, there are two patents, one is f2.8 and the other f2.0
dx is dead
+1 and growing
That’s odd. I just took several portrait shots with mine and it seems to be working just fine!?
NO! It’s DEAD I tell you! They’re announcing the funeral after the pre – Christmas sales on black Friday, before they announce the 7100…
D5100 39 pt AF implies D7xxx 51 pt AF
implies D400 will be FX
I take no joy in that,
just think its reality
Since when can you make acurate predictions on future camera releases based on the raw number of focus points??
Would be totally weird – confusing numbering. I think there are enough FX options now, so I still think it will be DX. I know ppl dream about a mini-D4(00), but I do not believe it will happen…
LONG LIVE DX !!!
My lovely Gog, please, send to all this people the Nikon D400. I’m very tired about it.
My lovely God, please, send to all this people the Nikon D400. I’m very tired about it.
That was very funny!
I bet even God laughed!
Glad she liked it.
My dear OMR, consider your prayer granted.
Next year, promise. Patience is a virtue.
Happy are those who can wait.
Can you check if you can comment with the new comment system?
Or do we need a pope as go-between?
Hi OMR. I’m afraid you’ve asked the wrong god. I and my fellow Mesopotamian gods are actually responsible for camera manufacture. We negotiated this as part of the reparations following the Monotheist vs Polytheist War of approx. 2000 BP.
Anshar et al.

My main camera is a D2x. The D5100 body at US$ 476 from B&H seems quite a bargain right now. In the past I have had tilt-LCD Nikons and found huge benefit to the tilt LCD.
Those of you who heavily dissed the D5200 for wedding photog use please advise what about the 5100/5200 (they seem very similar to me) makes them a poor choice as a backup (including weddings) and backpack camera. I have more than a full range of competent FX/DX Nikon lenses as well as four SB-800s.
It seems to me that the D5100 when used with good glass should be capable of very high quality image capture with few major limitations other than build quality (and one can buy four D5100s plus a 40mm 2.8 lens for the cost of a D600). And from experience I know that a twist LCD does provide large value add.
Please advise. Thanks!
