  1. Hello

    The bastards STILL did not put in an AF Motor, because they knew they would kill the market of D7000 if they would have done that.

    Yay! Specs look good (even some D7000-like specs). No touch-screen though (but hopefully a better UI).

    PS: for a website dedicated to the D5200, the (most important) news was posted a bit late….
