Basically. The 24MP sensor in this is considerably better than the T4i's aging sensor.

Only major thing missing from this is the built in AF motor found in higher end Nikons, but that's not a big issue for the target audience of this camera (especially since Nikon now has some very good and cheap AFS primes like the 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm 1.8G.)

Now that they have the newer cheap 35 and 50, I don't think anyone really worries about the motor. The biggest bummer used to the cheap 50 wouldn't AF on the lower end bodies.

Agreed. The new AFS 50 1.8 is an extremely sharp lens, one of the standout bargains in Nikon's lineup.


Comparing the specs of the T4i to this, it's honestly quite difficult to recommend the T4i...worse sensor, worse AF system, etc

I can't find (yet) any indication of whether it records 12-bit or 14-bit NEFs. Anyone got that info??

Its predecessor, the D5100, could record 14 bit NEFs, so I don't see any reason why the D5200 would not.

Well, if its the EXACT sensor from the D3200, it only has a 12-bit ADC, hence why I'm trying to find out.

Oh...found it: http://chsvimg.nikon.c​om/lineup/dslr/d5200/s​ample.htm (external link)

Official samples list them as 14-bit.

Finally, Nikon made the mic a stereo mic instead of mono.

The price, however, is supposed to be $900 with the 18-55 vr lens. Seems a tad lofty.

Isn't that only like $100 more than the t4i kit?
