As I got my D5200 late last night, I haven't "formally" tested it with my 16-85 and 35 yet, but I did confirm it works, and that the 35 is indeed sharper than the 16-85, but not orders of magnitude sharper ( which "hopefully" means that my 16-85 copy is darn good). One odd behavior on my Windows 7 64-bit system though...I installed the ViewNX software CD that came with the D5200, and got it listed in Program Files, but when launching the app, it doesn't open. No errors, just nothing happens. I think I'll download the latest version from Nikonusa.com.
Thanks again!
Steve
