The only thing I dislike about the Nikon D5200 are the plastic mount lenses...

Now that we've established that it's not the D5200 that you're disagreeable with, but the cheaper plastic kit lens mounts...my 18-55mm has been on winter camping trips, multiple canoe trips in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness complete with portages, backpacking trips, etc. and the lens has held up admirably the past 14 months.  Unless you're some sort of evolutionary throwback without opposable thumbs, I wouldn't worry too much about the lens if you take reasonable care of it.
