Not true.  Depends on what you need.

Items on the D7100 that I need that my D5000 and your D5200 don't have:

Ability to act as a flash commander.

1/250 flash sync speed for outdoor fill flash.

1/8000s ss for large aperture outdoor portraits

AF adjust for my fast primes.

Better AF and frame rate for shooting sports.

I'm not trying to say no one should buy the D7100, I agree that there are some great features.

But if you don't have a consistent need or use for some of those features, there are 3 other DX bodies that will effectively give you identical image quality.....

Or no reason to replace one you already own. Spend that money of glass, a better flash or maybe a trip to actually use them on?

Thanks for worrying about my budget, but that is my business.  Buying a new body doesn't preclude me from getting new glass or planning a trip.  Please don't insinuate that I don't use my gear when you don't even know me.
