On November 5 2012, Nikon announced the mid-range D5200 DX-format DSLR camera. The 24.1 Megapixels D5200 succeeds the D5100 with a new EXPEED 3 image processor, ISO range of 100-6400 (extendable to 25600), 39-point AF system, 3-inch vari-angle 921k dots LCD monitor, Full 1080p HD movies with full time autofocus, 5fps burst shooting, 39-point AF system, 2,016-pixel RGB metering sensor, the Scene Recognition System and a new generation GUI Design.

Compared to the D7000, the D5200 has the exact same autofocus system, metering sensor, and scene recognition system. The AF system features 39 points, 9 of which are cross-type sensors. The D5200 also lacks weathersealing, has a smaller viewfinder, slower burst rate (5fps versus 6fps), and a slower maximum shutter speed (1/4000s versus 1/8000s). When using the new WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, the D5200 can wirelessly transfer photos to Android smartphone or tablet, preview the image, and remotely control the camera. The D5200 features Full HD 1080p recording (up to 60i/50i) with full-time servo autofocus that tracks subjects as you're filming them. There's also a built-in stereo mic and a built-in movie editor. There are a number of built-in effects modes (e.g. selective color, miniature, high/low key, night vision, silhouette), HDR mode, and 16 scene modes. The D5200 is available in three different colors: black, red, and bronze colors. Here's the summary of hands-on preview by ePhotoZine: 

"The Nikon D5200 has a number of enhancements over the Nikon D5100, including a new 24.1 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, stereo microphones built in, 5fps continuous shooting, 39-point AF system, and EXPEED 3 processor for improves speed and image quality. Full HD movie recording up to 60i is available, with 1920x1080 60i supported. When recording 60i, 80% of the central part of the readout is clipped from 1080 30p. There is a built in stereo microphone, as well as a microphone socket. Subject tracking AF and AF-F follows a moving subject in three dimensions, similar to the function found on a video camera. An improved GUI (Graphical User Interface) gives clearer display of shutter, aperture and ISO settings on the back with both "Classic" and "Graphic" displays updated. Improved AF - as well as improved AF tracking in video mode, the camera has a 39 point AF module, advanced scene recognition, and 3D AF tracking. An additional button (added since the D5100) on the top of the camera gives quick access to continous shooting. Otherwise, little had changed on the back of the camera, with the same controls as the D5100, as well as side access to the memory card slot. An additional rubber grip has been added to the front right corner of the camera, for your left hand. 

The Nikon D5200 sees Nikon's range of Digital SLR cameras completely updated this year, with the Nikon D800 and D800E being the stand-out models due to the high resolution 36.3 megapixel full-frame sensor, as well as the 24 megapixel Nikon D3200. These cameras made the 16 megapixel Nikon D5100 seem somewhat over-shadowed. This has been rectified with the new 24.1 megapixel sensor in the Nikon D5200, however Nikon hasn't simply put in a new sensor, it's also upgraded and updated a number of other features, making the D5200 even more appealing. We will be testing as soon as available, and look forward to seeing whether the improvements and image quality live up to expectations."

Nikon D5200 Camera Reviews Roundup

"Overall image quality with the Nikon D5200 is nothing to complain about. For what it's worth though, the D5100 before it also had some stellar quality-but Nikon put more megapixels on a smaller sensor than some full frame cameras currently have during the time of publishing this post. In a nutshell, one can equate the D5200 to the dwarves in the Lord of the..." More »

"All in all, the D5200 delivered high quality results in my testing, both on still images and 1080p HD video. I tested the camera with the DX AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm kit lens, which has built-in optical image stabilization (or, vibration reduction). The lens has a VR switch for turning this feature on/off, and is arguably a better technology when built into the..." More »

"The Nikon D5200 is a lot of camera for the money, and though it's aimed at advanced beginners in terms of image quality and capabilities, it's not too far removed from DSLRs geared for more serious photographers. Thanks to its 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 processor -- which seems to be the same sensor-processor combo packed into the bigger, bette..." More »

Digital Camera Review - May 18 2013
"Nikon's D5200 sits in the middle of the most current triumvirate of Nikon cropped sensor DSLRs -- the D3200, 5200 and 7100. Its MSRP is $100 more than the D3200 but it offers an articulating 3 inch monitor, an extra frame per second in its high-speed continuous shooting mode and a more advanced autofocus system as recompense. The D5200 produces good still a..." More »
