Earlier this year, Nikon released the Nikon D5600, a mid-level DSLR successor to the D5500, a camera which we enjoyed a lot when it debuted about two years prior. We have just wrapped our Nikon D5600 Review and are pleased to report that the camera maintains many of the great aspects of its predecessor while adding new SnapBridge functionality.

Image quality from the 24.2-megapixel APS-C sensor remains very good, as does autofocus speed and performance when shooting through the viewfinder. The new AF-P kit lenses (18-55mm and 70-300mm AF-P kit lenses are available) offer faster, smoother autofocus performance when shooting with Live View and recording video. While many good aspects have stayed and some performance has improved, the D5600 does have some downgrades when compared to its predecessor.

Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E ED VR AF-S at 330mm (495mm eq.), f/5.6, 1/500s, ISO 360.
