D7000 or D5200 or wait for SLR with video clips of kids swimming/soccer games...
Feb 12, 2013

I think it is time to upgrade my trusty D70 and a rarely used (and heavy) Sony DVCAM camcorder. I want to take video clips of my kids swimming and soccer games (outdoors). Using DSLR for both purposes is appealing. I played around with a friend's D7000; I like it as a camera (e.g., dual card, weather proofing) and is a definite improvement over D70 but not as a video camera - the auto focus seems to suck. Since I am not planning to take many video clips; I could live with it. How is 5200 video mode (as opposed to D7000)? Since D7000 has been out for a while, perhaps it is time to wait though all the rebates make D7000 sound sweet. Any info. on the D5200 video mode is much appreciated. Thanks
