What are the primary differences between the D5100 and the D5200? Are these differences enough to justify the ~$200 price difference?

The days of dramatic increase in image quality between old and new models appear to either be over or at least slowed considerably, there is just not much difference here, in fact, the D5100 is arguably slightly better.

For someone on a budget this represents a very good opportunity to get excellent image quality without having to spend a fortune on a newer body, it also means better lenses can be purchased for less overall outlay.

In my opinion, the $200 you could save buying the D5100 would be far better invested in another lens than on a D5200 body.
