    Default which one? nikon D5200 or D5100?

    Hi,
    please advise which camera a beginner should buy?
    the D5100 seem to be great value for money, is D5200 worth the price gap?
    read this nice Nikon D5200 VS d5100 : Nikon D5200 vs Nikon D5100 | Nikon D5200
    still - would like to get more opinions .
    Thanks,
    Thom

    The D5200 is better for several reasons - more megapixels (an advantage with the large sensor of a DSLR), many more autofocus points, more advanced processor, better movie mode. It appears that the D5200 is about $150 more expensive - well worth it in my opinion.

    Well, it looks like Nikon just announced a new D5300 mid-level camera, and it's a winner! It's has the same 24.2 megapixel DX-format sensor as the high-end D7100, a 39-point high-density autofocus system, and a new Expeed 4 processor. It also features built-in Wi-Fi (apparently, you can download images directly to your smart phone...for sharing elsewhere) and a GPS (for geotagging your images). My favorite feature is the 3.2-inch swiveling vari-angle LCD (similar to what the D5200 had).

    You can already pre-order now for $800 (body only) on Amazon, and it qualifies for an addition 2% back in Amazon rewards. It looks like the camera will be released on November 14, 2013.

    Very exciting!

    The D7100 is excellent but it's considerably more expensive than the D5200 with the same sensor. It's a larger and heavier camera than the D5200 with a few more features and some better specifications but image quality will be substantially the same.
