4 weeks ago you bought the D5200, what happened.

Well I was looking at it as a replacement to the T4i I had but ended up returning it as there really wasn't much difference between the two and I had just begun to look at the D7100 then but wanted to wait and see what other reviews came out first before really considering it.

IQ will be basically the same as the D5200 you had so the improvement over that will be features related, built in focus motor, and focus differences. Do any of the features really appeal to you vs the D5200?

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)

Several actually. Dual Card Slots, more AF points, Built-In Focus motor, I find the lack of an AA filter to be interesting as well, and of course more controls.

Why don't you wait? This summer Canon will come out with a 70D and also the 7D is slated for replacement between now and a year. Nikon is busy refreshing its advanced DX cameras (new D7100, rumored D400 for the late summer), so Canon will not be far behind.

Waiting will save you on having to replace lenses.
