mrkarisma: This lens need an expensive body to work. On my D3200 it almost NEVER gets focus right, and its even worse when i use single point af.. But on my D600 it works just as good as my 50mm af-s 1.8... Strange lens..

I must have gotten a good copy then, because it works perfectly on my D3100 and now my D5600. This is the lens that is on my camera 90% of the time. The only time I ever use another lens is when I need a zoom for greater reach, like at the zoo.

Average User: I have had every D5xxx since the D5000, and though I have many much more expensive cameras now, some of my best shots ever came from these cameras, which in my opinion the best camera for a someone who wants great shots, without becoming a serious photographic enthusiast. But the series is just not DPR's cup of tea. Every D5xxx for the past six years, has been the exact same 79, from the D5200 to the D5600. It was the only Nikon DSLR with an articulating screen for a long time. It's still the only one with a fully articulating screen. Image quality took a huge leap forward with the D5200 -24 mp up from 16 in the D5100, and then in the D5300 the OLPF filter was dropped so that images could come out significantly sharper. From the D5300 on, it has been fine tuning. The autofocus is fast, and accurate; its much smaller than the D7xxx series and up, and there are plenty of excellent lenses at reasonable prices. Except for video, highly recommend.

I upgraded from the D3100 to this D5600 and it's a far, far better camera features wise and image wise. Also love the articulating touch screen and wifi/bluetooth/NFC connectivity with my smartphone.

Scottelly: No GPS? I would prefer to get the old D5300 then. Too bad they can't do what Canon has done with their 7D Mk II, and choose to include GPS as well as Wi-Fi. Why does Nikon put both GPS and Wi-Fi in their waterproof point-and-shoot, but not this camera, when they used to put both in the D5300? The optional external GPS apparently sucks. My old Sony A65 bodies have GPS built into their bodies, and it works fine. Hmmm . . .

. . . and please don't tell me I can use my phone, because that doesn't always work right, burns my phone battery, and is just a clunky work-around for something that should be included as a standard item.

Dant Gwyrdd, it doesn't help taking pictures. It's just another bragging point and useless feature to 99.99 percent of users. The typical, "my camera has GPS and yours doesn't", crap. Only gearheads care about this.

My first DSLR, and it was easy and fun to learn photography with. I just wanted simple and inexpensive to upgrade from point and shoots and cell phone cameras, and this fit the bill perfectly. It's now an 8 year old model and doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the new ones have, but it still takes great pictures even if they are considered low res at 14.2 mp. Takes great low light pictures with little noise. Only real weaknesses are that only 9 focus points, with only 1 cross type, so you will get quite a few out of focus shots. The other being the anti alias filter, so pictures are soft, especially in auto mode, but they can be corrected if you shoot in raw and use editing software. I've now upgraded to a D5600, so now this is my backup/2nd camera.
