Nikon D5200 DSLR announced: Impressive upgrade, but won’t quiet D400 clamor

As expected, Nikon has introduced the new Nikon D5200 DSLR. It is a very solid upgrade from the Nikon D5100, bumping the resolution to 24MP, focus points to 39 like the Nikon D7000, and frame rate to 5fps – a little slower than the D7000’s top speed of 6 fps.

But in the meantime, I was blown away by the amazing test results achieved by the D600 by the folks over at DxOMark. In their exhaustive tests the D600 bested not only the Canon 5D Mark III, but Nikon's own D4 for low-light performance and overall image quality... Read more »
