Nikon D5300 £679, $897 (with 18-55mm lens)
Arriving soon after the D7100, the D5300 matches its resolution in a smaller, more novice-friendly body.
The D5300’s 5fps continuous shooting is very good for a camera in the novice sector, but the D7100 is faster.
24.2 megapixel DX sensor
Nikon dropped the optical low pass filter to produce the joint-sharpest APS-C format sensor on the market.
ISO 100-12800, expands to 25600
The D5300’s standard ISO range is 1EV higher than the D7100’s, but the ‘expanded’ limit is the same.
