Nikon D5200 tops all APS-C DSLRs in Dxomark measurements
The Nikon D5200 is using a 24-megapixel APS-C sensor with a Toshiba connection. Dxomark measures RAW sensor data. Dxomark evaluations are not intended to be end-to-end camera system evaluations. But they do provide data that for the average photographer is impossible or impractical to gather on his or her own. With that as a semi-necessary preface, there is a new Dxomark APS-C king and queen...
... it is the Nikon D5200! It is currently the highest ranking APS-C camera at the DXomark ratings.
For a refresher on the Dxomark testing process, here is a detailed article by Stephen Shankland of CNet who visited Dxo in the spring of 2012. For an analysis of the Dxomark testing process, check a December 2012 post by Peter van der Hamer at Luminous.
