What are the primary differences between the D5100 and the D5200? Are these differences enough to justify the ~$200 price difference?

For $200, get the new body. As others have said, the AF module alone is worth the difference.

In what circumstances?

The AF module is a marketing gimmick that works very well because Nikon get to save a fortune by recycling the innards of the D7000 and playing to the nonsense seen here.

$200 for that AF module is a joke.

Most people never fully use the capability of the module in the D5100 as it is. You gotta wonder how Canon users have coped for so long with an even lower spec AF than the D5100.

Lenses will make a massive difference, the 39 point AF module will give you bragging rights at best.
