Re: D5200 now available in NZ, checked one out today.

I've over new equipment.  I used to print the new Nikon brochures out but not anymore, it the D80, D90, D200 etc ... I got a new D70 in 2004 and still have it.  I made a silly purchase in 2009 for a 6yr old D2h and picked it up in palmy ... hardly use the thing, was lured by the 8fps that I never use.  The thing is more older stuff in NZ is actually cheaper on auction sites than eBay in the states.  Couldn't sell even if I could .....

My D70 can still do decent A4 and A3s at lowish ISOs which is all I use, not into wildlife, sports, street photography.   If one breaks I may get a newer camera about it.

I have seen the images on here with the super duper 70-200mm on the D3x but I just don't see much difference on my D70 when I had the 80-200/2.8, I sold that lens b/c if I was less than 5m away the image wasn't sharp but the check came back within spec.
