In the M setting AI/AIS lenses can be used on the D5200/D5100 (without metering). The electronic rangefinder can be used in this mode (if max. lens aperture <= 5.6). Is the electronic rangefinder information also available on the screen so I can use the screen for focusing?
When shooting in this mode can I see the histogram on the screen as an overlay on the picture just taken?

Then I have no excuse for not buying the camera I guess.
It will be interesting to see the d5200 24MP sensor compared with the d3200. I hope it just shows a little better figues. Nikon claims that it should be "better". Less noise and better dynamic range.
