Summary: Box arrived as advertized.Every thing works except the card reader.Could not fit it in any slots especially with the card in the reader.I use the cord anyway.Every thing else fits and works ok.I think the tripods fine.Good enough to get you going.I have used the 55-300 on it with no problems.At $700-$750 with the 18-55mm kit lens the extra stuff you have to buy make the bundle worth it in my opinion.The 55-300 is worth $230-$395 depending on where you shop.Its not a tac...
Summary: This is my first digital SLR. I began using film SLRs back in 1965, but quit photography for a while when the last one broke down in the 1980s. I've been through a variety of small digital cameras starting in 2000, the last being a 4-megapixel Nikon Coolpix 4500 purchased in 2003 (for $529.95). I've taken at least 6,000 photos with the CP 4500 -- mostly macros of insects and spiders, since it can focus down to 0.7 inches, but also lots of bird shots.
Summary: First time Nikon and dslr user here, and I must say that I'm loving this camera! I'm a huge fan of all the still and video options it gives meaning that even all the preset auto functions deliver outstanding pictures in almost every imaginable scenario. I'm more a fan of manual controls as I'm more familiar with using them on hd camcorders but it's nice to know that if I just want to pop off a few shots without any fuss, I can easily do so.
Very Happy, but Nikon should re-visit the grip design

Summary: After several years with the Nikon D-50 I upgraded to D5200. Love it! Honestly, there is only one thing I dislike: From a perspective of ergonomics, I strongly prefer the design and the way the right-hand grip and controls work on the D50 to those on the newer D5200. I brought my D50 to a store, compared both, and my wife and I were both surprised the newer model just isn't as comfortable as the earlier model.
Summary: I love this camera. I upgraded from D5100. The red color is 1000% fantastic! It is so beautiful. The camera takes great pictures and I know I will be using it for a long time. I recommend this camera to anyone who likes to take photos.
