Nikon D5200
24.1 megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor; 1080/60i HD video capture with stereo sound; 39-point autofocus system; 3-inch articulated LCD with 921,000 dots; 5fps continuous burst; Lithium-ion battery

Nikon has needed an update to the aging D5100 for most of 2012 after they cannibalized sales with the 24 megapixel D3200. The D5200 handily leapfrogs the D3200 by using the same 24.1 megapixel sensor but gaining the D7000's 39-point autofocus, a 3-inch articulated LCD, stereo mics and a slightly faster 5fps burst mode. The video mode has also been boosted to 1080/60i. These specifications actually best the D7000 in some respects, but Nikon has left out the larger viewfinder and dual control wheels we've come to expect of prosumer models. Overall, the D5200 is a solid, if unsurprising, new offering in the Nikon lineup that competes nicely with Canon's T4i. Pricing is still an unknown, but expect the kit to fall somewhere around the $900 mark. Nikon will also be releasing red and chrome colors.
