Summary: I think the Nikon D5100 is one of the best DSLR cameras for the money. Get a nice used one for far less than the D5200 and I think it's a better camera. Who needs 24 megapixels? I'm now on my second one (first one was stolen) and I would readily buy another if need be. The only time I would upgrade is to go up to a FX format camera.
Pros: Amazing camera, I purchased this camera to start learning how to take great pictures and get into the camera scene. I am learning daily at the amazing things this camera can do and have no regrets.
Cons: Not that this is on the camera, but the seller marked up the price to 799.99$ then had it on sale for 459.99$. After the sale ended the price went to 499.99$ with no type of sale. Great marketing to bring in poor people looking to get a great deal.
Summary: I recomment this camera to anyone who needs a high quality point and shoot camera. I really like it because not only can I use it as a point and shoot on full automatic right now, but later as I learn more about photography I can use it in manual mode.
