Re: D5200 or D3200 or....

... I think you meant to write you want to buy a midrange DX body....

Actually  I think the D7000 has come down a lot in price, so you may want to check deals in your area, you may find one very cheap. If you go for the D7000 make sure you thoroughly check it immediately for front or backfocus (this is a known issue it has) and get it serviced immediately if it has the issue. Otherwise it is known to overexpose by half a stop in high contrast conditions so be aware of that, and shoot raw. It is probably what you want. The d5200 is very new, it will be more expensive than the d7000 and you won't know for sure what you are getting in terms of image quality there is very little data available on it yet.

Cheers Stephan
