It's not out yet. I did catch a Chinese review of it, though, and from the translation I got it's definitely better with a few exceptions; the stereo mic isn't that great, high-ISO performance isn't that great, and the matrix metering system seems to need its kinks worked out. Probably a result of combining a new sensor with tech from 2 different cameras (D7000's metering/AF systems and D3200's image processor); sounds great on paper but it doesn't measure up to that in practice. tongue.gif I was hoping for the chance to try out a D5200 but it sounds like I'll be happy with the D5100 if I end up with that.

My wife has a Canon and we absolutely love it! Also, you can usually get some great deals on hsn or qvc, I know you pay a little more in the long run, but the payment system without a credit check is nice. And sometimes they do offer a decent package. But yeah, canon is quite good. My wifes cost $500 a couple years ago, and her macro lens was also $500

well, don't forget.. on paper, cameras like the 5D3, 6D, etc, sounded like they weren't going to be that great (some improvements but people thought they would be lackluster) and they produce beautiful images. Also, microphone built into any digital camera should be treated like junk and should be replaced with some sort of an external mic (I picked up a Sennheiser MKE 400 to surprise my brother in law and film personalized messages from him and his (then fiancée) and film their vows for their wedding last weekend, and I was borderline blown away by the quality it allowed me to get - of course, I was in the wedding and I had the camera setup over my shoulder, so I had a good vantage point, but the mic picked up the vows almost as if they were wearing a lavalier, from probably about 25 feet away. I was impressed.)

whoops, tangent, sorry!

If you can wait for it to be released, do so; that way, if you really don't care for the 5200, the 5100 price should (in theory) drop anyway). Either way, it's potentially a win-win to wait a little while if you can.

When I started I got a Nikon d3200, at the time it was just released and got the starter kit that came with an extra 55mm-200mm lens for a little extra dough $900 to be exact... After shooting with this for a while, it's an entry level slr, I stopped by the local pawn shop as I did from time to time to see what they have going on... Found d90 body, I knew that they normally went at the time for $900..so I went and asked who I could tell was a new employee and asked him if he could tell me how long they had had it, he looked it up and said 5 months...bingo, they were asking $550 for it, but they had it for awhile so I knew they were ready to let it go, so long story short got it for $300, low and behold it came with lcd protector and a camera back pack that retailed for $100 bucks...Lucked out on that one and I just swap lens between my d3200 and d90 as needed... In photography lens can really set you back as they are usually more exspensive then the body, check your local pawn shops and see if they have any slr camera or lens, you might just find a diamond in the rough!

my d3200 has not dissapointed me yet. I know and can feel a little of its beginners drawbacks, but it still takes great pictures. I have the best bang for your buck lenses (except the 35 1.8.)

Nikon 50mm 1.8g
Nikon 18-55 3.5-5.6g DX VR
Nikon 70-300 4.5-5.6g ED VR IF

and just ordered a Nikon 17-55mm 2.8 DX ED IF.

i can see the noise in the higher isos a little bit but they still take great pictures.

I would highly recommend this camera.

you have some really good timing on those shots. if you got on the court and shot from the baseline you would have some incredible shots there sir thumb.gif
i really like to shoot from the corner right of the basket as most players are right handed which means you are more likely to get their face in the shot for dunks and layups wink.gif

@Conspiracy -- yeah, almost where the cheerleaders are standing, maybe a bit more towards the corner of the court (or did you mean the corner of the key?)

Remember -- noise means you got the shot, and most times it can be fixed later (if necessary). It's better to have a shot with noise than to miss the shot because you're afraid the quality won't be 'good enough'. This isn't the days of film. Don't be afraid to shoot (advice for both basketball AND photography, apparently).

yeah corner of the court. i usually sit like dead on the corner itself and keep all my stuff really tight next to me so im literally like about a foot off the out of bounds line usually. on some courts there isnt extra space behind the basket where the cheerleaders are because of that wall. but even when im shooting at other schools most cheerleaders wont care if you are in the corner of the court because they can scoot down a little. its when you ask them if you can sit center court inbetween them that makes it hard because you are asking to get accidentally kicked in the head when they cheer lol

I wouldn't mind sitting in the photo pit at a basketball game for a while. I wouldn't last long though, my back is terrible without some sort of support.
