The 3-inch LCD on the back swivels out, meaning you can frame pictures from almost any angle and you can see the screen while standing in front of the camera. It even has a grip on the front that is deeper and much more comfortable than other comparable models. Overall, the D5200 is a speedy system and autofocus is snappy.
Finally, there's the 24.1 megapixel sensor, the heart of what makes for a great picture. With it, the D5200 is able to produce great quality images full of detail and color accuracy. Sensors like this are the reason why people step up to DSLRs and the D5200's definitely delivers.
