5200 should have greater picture quality, more focus points, better weight/size. Generally regarded as being better. D90 has almost 50% more battery power, works faster, and larger/better viewfinder. So the D90 seems to have qualities that might be preferred by a casual camera user where as the 5200 is probably the superior camera.

My general advice is unless you will really be using the extra features between the two then put the money into better glass instead. You will get better quality images and your glass remains good whereas the body quickly gets outdated.

Most of the standard lens kits that come with DSLR's are crap or average at best...

Personally I am a Canon person so I can't really comment on the Nikon models though :p

better lens FTW, and also moar camera skills, seen way too many idiots lug around huge cameras and massive lenses as a necklace accessory and take crap photos or camwhore with it.

not a camera person but i guess nikon is a reliable brand.

When I was into my photography Canon had a slightly better high-end glass selection. However nowadays I think the differences are negligible.

But basically yes - even if you got the entry level SLR and spend the extra few thousand bucks on a good lens (or two) your photos will still look better than the top range camera body with the entry level lens >.<

My only experience with Nikon is with a point and shoot but they have excellent lenses. And yes you would want to look into getting a different lens. Try getting a used lens in Japan. People keep them in near perfect condition and there is a great selection.
