So, $500 extra for the 18-140mm kit lens when it normally costs about $450 standalone? Gee, thanks!

Retzius: Its the same body as the D5500... not sure where this smaller body thing is coming from

it is 5 grams lighter because they removed a feature, the rear ir receiver

According to DP themselves, the dimensions are exactly the same as D5500:
124 x 97 x 70 mm (4.88 x 3.82 x 2.76″).

Looks like the tiles are 8x8 (64) pixels in the sample images posted above, but that may not be consistent across the entire image.

H Akay: 5200 fw LINK IS WRONG. It points to 5100 update ! Nikon file extracts as 5100.bin ...

They've fixed it now. Still, based on the downsides and no benefits, I don't see why anyone would actually install this FW on their 5200.

Ben Herrmann: CAUTION: Be very careful - I just did the firmware update for the Nikon P7700, and now, 3rd party batteries no longer work. The camera will not respond to any of the 3rd party models that I have - including the Wasabi's that are superior. Once you turn off the camera (after firmware update), it will not start up again with a 3rd party battery (at least in my case). But it will function just fine with Nikon batteries. Way to go Nikon!!!! You Tu_ds....another way for you to make an extra buck now having to buy your batteries exclusively.

Well, the question is whether the camera will allow you to install a lower version firmware. Sometimes these things are programmed in such a way that the camera will ignore the "new" (old in your case) firmware if this firmware's version number is lower than what's currently in the camera.

I've got a D5200 and now I'm wondering if this upgrade would make my non-Nikon battery stop working as well. For now, I'm just not going to install this new firmware at all.

Are you able to revert back to an older firmware version or is that not supported?

And that's assuming you have a copy of the older firmware file somewhere...

Danica: Is the D5200 link correct? The download says f-D5100-V101W.exe

Yeah, I noticed that too. The link on the 5200 firmware page points to the same file as the 5100. Pretty sure Nikon got the link wrong.

And I also agree, seems like it's not really worth upgrading at this point.

Nice! Now, where is an in-depth review of the D5200? :)

On article Nikon D5200, 24MP DSLR with 39-point AF gets US launch (37 comments in total)
In reply to:

Timmbits: Essentially a D3200 with an unrestricted firmware and the addition of a screen hinge and second mic = essentially the D3200 hardware that is a few hundred dollars overpriced.
Despite this, an OK deal... but could be better because the D3200 tells us what they would be able to sell it for and still make a healthy profit.

Francis, it looks like 24 Mbps in high quality mode and 12 Mbps in normal mode at the highest resolution, based on this link:

Intence: It's a nice feature set, but that's a big price jump between the D3200 @ 599 currently and the D5200 @ 899. You're getting better AF and the articulating screen mostly for $300 (keeping in mind that the lens is identical). Assuming body-only would be $499 and $799 the D5200 is over 50% costlier than the D3200.

Other than the slightly high price, it appears to be a nice incremental upgrade, specifically with regards to the 24mp sensor, and the AF system from the D7000, which is taking consumer SLRs to a new level.

Right now, the D7000 is looking like a bargain at current pricing, but as i'm sure the D5200 will drop in a few months, it should be a worthy competitor. On paper it appears to compete well with the T4i, and keep in mind that Canon's sensor tech in the Rebels is a bit dated.

You also get HDR with D5200, if that matters to the buyer.

In reply to:

acidic: It should be noted that just because the LR Catalog file is backed up does not mean the image files are backed up. Someone will undoubtedly confuse the two and will lose their image files as a result.

My biggest gripe with LR is that it lacks metadata import/export functionality. It would be nice to be able to export IPTC/EXIF data form a catalog (or subset of the catalog) as a .csv file, as well as import that data back in. Many image databases allow this, so I'm sure Adobe is more than capable of adding such a feature.

That's one thing I still don't understand... when you import an image into LR, does LR create a copy of that image file somewhere else on your hard drive, thus chewing up additional HDD space?
