I understand that video mode in D7000 sucks (as compared to a camcorder). Is the one in D5200 any better?

Simple answer NO.

Some reviews even claim that the D5200 is worse. Especially the new interlaced mode.

Still exactly the same AF issues.

There are far better NON dedicated video cameras out there. Sony HX9V etc for example. It'll slip into your pocket.

If video AND photo is important to be in one camera for you then look elsewhere.

eg  Sony SLT   Panasonic 4/3rds etc
