    The new camera isn’t a substantial upgrade to the D5200, although it could be attractive to potential purchasers who want to step up from one of the entry-level D3*** series models or the lower-resolution D5100 (provided they can use the higher resolution, which is another story). Read more

    Incredibly good pictures with it. Though much depends on the lens goes with it. Have bought a macro in SEK 2000 class. A cheap kit lens and telephoto lens from tamron for 3000th Feels fresher than d5100. Modernising screen and twice the resolution so you can cut and enlarge images. Read more

    I've only had it a few days so maybe get update my rescention later. Build quality, I think the camera is good to be entry level and in plastic, it has a rubber grip on strategic places and it fits well in the hand. Read more
