i bought it at a higher price last year, and so far it has been worth getting. i have taken some amazing shots with it and overall enjoyed the camera. i cant say i would exactly recommend this one persay though. it is a great model but it was last years model. i would recommend a non slr camera to a begginner and if they were good tell them to get this one. it is great for the price. so if you are an aspiring photographer and wish for a cheaper buy in a quality camera this is definitely what you need.
A new world has opened to my wife. She has never had a camera remotely close to the quality or versatility this one possesses. She actually sees the difference between pictures and art. And having seen some of the things she has done with a lot less I can only imagine where this will take us. Thanks guys......

Absolutely astonishing results are readily available using this camera and Nikon's best lenses. To obtain the best results the use of a stable tripod is advisable. The detail in the landscape photography that I shoot with this combination of camera and the 24-70mm 2.8 lens and the 70-200mm 2.8 VR II lens is breathtaking. No other DSLR in this size even comes close. Using this camera anywhere near its potential does require dedication and diligence. To say that it is complex is an understatement. Photography fanatics will love this camera. Be prepared to make an investment, nothing this good comes \"cheap.\"
The Nikon D5200 is a fantastic piece of equipment. We do professional beach photography and because of humidity, salt, sand etc. we do not want to take a 5k dollar camera to the beach. My boss and I both purchased the Nikon D5200 exclusively for this reason. We are not disappointed one bit, this camera shoots 24 mp with outstanding picture quality. The best $1000 I have ever spent. Pro quality at a modest price. PS: the HD 1080p video capability is also fantastic.
I purchased this after couple years using the D3100. The photos are light years ahead in detail and clearity. Alot more controls are on buttons and will be faster to use after I learn the function of them. Most were only available by the menus on the D3100.
i wonted to upgrade to a advance dslr my first dslr was the D3200 i seen that nikon is going to replace the D7000 sometime in 2013 so after some research and discussion with some professional camera people it was clear this was worth the money first off its weatherseal the D3200 was not.... the D7000 has got metale body parts so it will hold up over time.. the d3200 is plastic it wont hold up over time. plus u can go to sortable.com or snapsort.com and u can compare the differance between the 2 the D7000 has just amazed me time and time agein of the things it could do i look forward to learning with it if you are coming from a basic dslr like i did and wont to get a professional A.P.C. nikon camera u have found it
