Re: The zooms are not dark hyenadog!

For video, the D5200 is a killer tool !

I have the nex-5R and the Nikon D5100, so not exactly you dilema, but close.

I love the Nex as my carry around camera, light, good IQ, always in my bag.
I love using cheap lenses and MF using focus peaking it's a joy ! I found a 135mm f/2.8 for 35 buck, found russian M39 lenses have caracters and are soo tiny ! I have the lens turbo to reuse my nikon lenses too !

I only use my D5100, when I have an assigment for shooting action (especially in low-light), then I take the sigma 17-50 f/2.8 and I have a fast AF-C !
