What camera to purchase? Nikon D5200 or D7100 (double in price)....or other?
Mar 8, 2014

I have a Nikon D80 which is my first major camera upgrade from a point and shoot. I have been researching and researching to the point that I am confused as to which way to go. The specs on the two are similar but with the D7100 being almost double in price, but is it worth it? I would hate to purchase the D5200 and outgrow it wanting the D7100 in the end. I shoot about 60/40 outdoors vs indoors. I would also like to shoot video. Since I do not have the capability of shooting video on the D80 that throws other factors in. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
