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

Actually only $50 more, but I ain't rushing out to buy a T4i either.

You can acquire a D5100 (certified refurb) for $389 (body) or $439 (kit). While the updated AF, metering system and sensor are nice, do they represent $460 worth of value??

Same question asked everytime a new camera comes out. It's evolution of technology and new sells. Especially with stellar specs in a consumer Dslr like this.

I can see making purchasing decisions based on older models and refurb deals. But you can't make really use it to evaluate launch prices. The D5100 was also $800 at launch and at the time you could get D5000s and D60s for dirt cheap.

To be fair, Canon did update the T4i with the 60D level AF and it's best APS-C sensor. You can argue Nikon's is better, but Canon was not trying to make a crippled Rebel in the T4i.

Thats really not saying much however..

I think that 11-point AF from the 6D is destined for the 70D...

That 9 point AF is as good as Nikon's 39 point and has been said to be more reliable in low light. The 18MP sensor is old news, yes.

I don't think they will use the 6D AF since it is mostly line type. That would make the 70D worse than the T4i.

Yeah, watching Kai shoot with the D600 and watching the AF not work so well really made me raise an eyebrow if you're getting "Better AF" on the D600...

Is the sensor in the 5200 going to be an improved version of the 3200's? I was disappointed at the 3200's for noise and general IQ. Maybe being 14 bit etc work has gone in to it?

Yes, the sensor is completely different.

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

To further answer your question:

However, some may raise an eyebrow when they learn that the D5200 doesn't have exactly the same sensor as the D3200. The D5200 uses a new 24.1-million effective pixel sensor that has not been seen elsewhere and according to Nikon we can expect the new device to have a more extensive dynamic range.

I've tried out the D600's AF in person and it doesn't seem to be that bad. I own a D700 with the 51 pt AF system and I've extensively used a friend's 5DM3 with the 61 pt system, and the D600 doesn't seem that much worse. The only complaint I have is that the AF points are more clustered in the center compared to the D700/5D3.

Having owned a number of Canon cameras ranging from Rebels to 40D/5D, I prefer the D600's AF system. The non-cross points in the periphery are pretty good, at least in my short experience with the D600. An annoyance on many Canons is that the AF points are permanently etched into the viewfinder, whereas on Nikons they only show up when needed and don't distract from the viewfinder view.

I wouldn't take any of the test Kai did seriously. They are good for entertainment though :p
