The Nikon D5200 Kit is now available on Amazon.com & Adorama for $896.95 with the 18-55mm kit lens (Amazon.com is offering 2% cash back). With a considerable 50% increase in megapixels, faster shooting rates, 39pt focus system hybrid style focus system (9 Cross type focus points), and a stereo microphone, the D5200 offers a modest increase in quality over its predecessor.

It was announced several months ago but the Nikon D5200 is finally coming to America. With a considerable 50% increase in megapixels, faster shooting rates, 39pt focus system hybrid style focus system (9 Cross type focus points), and a stereo microphone, the D5200 offers a modest increase in quality over its predecessor. When LearningCameras first heard of this camera, it was exciting news. But now several months later, the D5200 has a great deal to live up to.
