>Hello Steve,
>
>I asked myself the same question recently. I don't have the
>D5200 but I do have the D5100 and D3200. I have three AFS
>lenses that benefitted with an AF adjustment between +10 and
>+13 on my D800. On the D5100 two of the lenses would need no
>adjustment at all and the third only a very slight adjustment
>of maybe +2 or +3 and most likely of no concern. I don't know
>what this means.
>
>My original thought, before I tested these lenses, was that
>since The D3xxx and D5xxx bodies are lower cost and most
>likely would not be used with fast lenses that cost 2 or 3
>times the cost of the body. That means that the body would be
>used with lenses with a max aperture in the f4 to f5.6 range
>which would mask any minor to medium AF errors. I thought that
>could be a calculated risk made by Nikon in order to reduce
>the cost of the body.
>
>Another consideration is that prior to the D300 Nikon did not
>put in an AF fine tune option in the setup menu. There pretty
>much were no complaints about AF with these older bodies like
>the D1, D2 and D100/200 bodies. Maybe the AF was aligned
>better in the lenses made at that time. I know that the older
>lenses I have, especially made prior to the AFD lenses don't
>seem to have a problem.
>
>The bottom line is I really don't have an answer to your
>question, only what I've observed with my gear.

>Len, I appreciate your comments regarding your lenses and AF adjustment. I just got the D5200 with the 16-85 and 35mm Nikkors, and plan to do some testing tonight. Thanks again, Steve
