Having been launched in Europe countries a while earlier, the new Nikon D5200 has just become available in USA, too. The 24 megapixel camera slots nicely between Nikon D3200 and D7000, gaining the latter’s great 39-point AF system. Articulated screen, 1080p/60 video, Expeed 3 image processor ad 100-6400 ISO range completes the attractive package for beginner photographers and those wanting a small, lightweight DSLR.
One notable difference from the previous European introduction is the price. In the first announcement, Nikon claimed a $1,150 MSRP price, which was staggeringly high for such a camera. We were right to doubt such price policy, luckily. The camera will cost around $900 with the 18-55mm VR kit lens.
