D5200 - another Jurassic Park dino from Nikon
Nov 10, 2012

Can it really be true...? 
"The D5200 uses a similar viewfinder to the D5100, ..., a not-especially-impressive 0.78x magnification. It's arguably the least-impressive aspect of the entire camera"
"Disappointingly the D5200 doesn't have an eye sensor either to turn off the rear screen when you're using the viewfinder, so it can flicker away distractingly at you, turning off as you half-press the shutter then lighting up again when you take your finger away" DPR

I've been waiting for the D5200 for some time and really praying that Nikon would have the wit to do something about the D5100's cramped viewfinder, and its the seriously outdated omission of an eye sensor for turning the rear screen off. I think Canon introduced such sensors on their introductory basic compact DSLRs around about 2002, and yet here we are in 2012 and Nikon still haven't got round to adding one in the med range DSLRs.

Nikon its appalling. Just who do you think we are? I'm not going to splash out my hard won cash on a DSLR with a micro viewfinder, and which doesn't even come equipped with a $10 sensor for preventing the rear screen from flickering in my eyes when I'm trying to compose a shot.

Woeful effort Nikon. D minus (again). Try joining the 21st century.
