Hi Len. Thanks again for your insights, sir! Upon further testing, I am actually finding that my images with the D5200 are as sharp or sharper than those from my "old" Pentax K-5 system. This, using the Nikkors 16-85 and 35 f/1.8, not even the Micro-Nikkors, so I think I am pleased with regard to image sharpness. However, I still like the D7100 feature set better, and may acquire one of those in the near future. One thing I am noticing is that on the D5200, after using it in Live View mode for 45 minutes or so, the battery seems to deplete by 1 or 2 bars...Is that normal? (I've only taken perhaps 20 exposures in that period of time. I use the Live View to study the image composition, sharpness, Focus point, etc.)
As for Windows v Mac, I'm rather locked into Windows since I use them at work, though I do use an Apple Cinema Display. Thanks, Steve
