OlavM: "One key difference compared to the Canon EOS 650D is that the D5200's screen isn't touch sensitive "
It seems to me that DPR must have been thinking something like this:
'Ahem....the Canon 650's user-interface is about 1 generation ahead ... ....well, we DID make a remark on that (rather cleverly camouflaged as a text to some picture, probably only a few will read this ...)'
Question: You are Nikonians, huh ?
This is a MAJOR difference between two 'top volume models' in the present market of DSLR's, and as such, deserves quite a different amount of attention, discussion and focus, than chosen by dpreview for this preview......Nikon is clearly behind the trends of mass market here !
Cretaceous shale? How can that be? Electronics weren't even around back then.
