|FordTang||Oh, you know what, I was talking about the d3200, sorry. But sensor is the same, but I guess I'm in totally different classes when comparing the d3200 to the pentax.|

The older K-5 even beats the D5200.

damn.... I have a k5, 8-16 sigma, 28mm f2 kiron manual, 50mm f1.7 manual, and 50-200 WR. I've been searching the used adds for months looking for some limited glass in these FL--I find myself missing unexpected action shots without autofocus and aperture priority. This set would be dreamy--don't think i can justify the effort and resale fees of selling the body though... maybe i just need a backup body right? ... I can always dream.
That and I'm still waiting on my macro 35mm 2.8 adorama had on sale a month or so ago. Seriously questioning whether i made the right choice at 535$ over the DA 35 2.4.

The D5200 also has microfocus adjustment, top LCD, weather sealed construction, 1/8000 shutter speed, in body shake reduction, Magnesium alloy shell, APS-C sensor with no anti-aliasing filter, etc. I don't think so.
At the end of the day, it's really more about the photographer than specs anyway.

|FordTang||It's really strange because the sensor from the d5200 is suppose to be so awesome, but when I'm looking at shots taken from the d5200, they just seem so blurry or have color inaccuracies, on top of all that, I hear button layout ergonomics are not that great. I was looking into getting a d5200 but it just doesn't seem good to me.|

d5200 has better sensor score, higher mega pixels, and is significantly cheaper. Not good enough Pentax..

|TheBaffler||man, I wish I had $$$ to put towards a k-5ii + these primes. I've heard it's just an awesome camera (with trade-offs of course)|
