ISO values: may be a good thing actually

More than with the D7000.

DXO Mark measures ISO via saturation, not midgray level, as do makers when they calibrate camera. If DXO mark gets a 68 for nominal ISO100, that means that the camera has, actually, a saturation (clipping) further up from midgray level as calibrated by Nikon. That could mean more HLs DR (distance from midgray to actual RAW clipping).

So, in practice, you will see exactly the same settings as a camera that reads 100 on both counts, same overall results (depending on jpeg curve), but D5200 will show more HLs latitude.
