Your D5100's 16 MP sensor is just fine, you don't need to lust after the 24 MP sensor. There, I said it.

Ah .... indeed. But I didn't say I was lusting after the 24MP sensor. I could in fact be lusting after a beautiful red body of a D5200, rather than the traditional sombre black of a D5100!

But to obtain that most wondrous of red, I have no choice but to have it wrapped around a 24MP sensor. Which isn't an issue if the final IQ is going to be the same or better, but its a different matter if the some aspect of the IQ has been diminished!

I may be a style guru. But IQ comes first

i'm tempted with the D5200, just need a few reviews and raw samples to make any kind of decision, and bronze will be my colour of choice
