I agree the 7100 is a better choice then the 5200 but both share the same focal plane. I also agree the ergodynamics of the 5200 suck but it has one great feature...an articulated LCD. Its wonderful for flowers when your down close to the ground. You can compose without your chin being on the ground.


Although the articulated LCD is handy, for BIF, and even sitting birds, the D7100 has superior AF. And that is very important.

Also, according to an Authorized Nikon Service facility Nikon does not allow those facilities to work on the D5nnn series or the D600 bodies. That sends up a red flag to me.

There are lots of excellent P&S cams with articulated LCD screens. The smaller sensor would also provide much better DOF without having to use higher f-stops like we do with the SLR rigs.
