#6. "RE: Nikon D5200 + Nikkor 18-300 VRII Review" In response to In response to 5
The D5200 is most likely coming into North America at well under $900. It's a superb consumer camera. But the D7000 is a more advanced camera in many respects - a true enthusiast body - and it's being heavily discounted everywhere in anticipation of a replacement (which I've been predicting won't show up until April or May). The D7000 body is now under $800. It's the best choice for anyone looking for an advanced DSLR.
