The d5200 is available where I live in the shops. Approx. £500 for body only and £6100 for body + 18-55 VR.
I am sure we will soon see some reviews (dpreview, dxomark etc.). I think you get lot more picture quality in the d5200 than the 1 V2. The price level is the same and the d5200 is not that big. Both cameras requires a bag. I will probably go for the d5200.
