Nikon D5600 tested at DxOMark
Nevertheless, with 24-MP in DX format being extremely demanding on lens performance, it is unlikely that we’ll see an increase in pixel count until Nikon updates more lenses, or expands the range of AF-P lenses in the lineup.
Given that the only weak point of the D5600 is that we’ve come to expect more from an update, it is perhaps somewhat unfair to criticize Nikon for releasing the D5000 (and D3000) models so frequently.
Visitors will also be invited to explore several interactive areas throughout the show floor, including a 360/VR experience showcasing content captured with Nikon’s new KeyMission line of action cameras and a demonstration of robotic integration.
The lack or pre-CES rumors was very simple: just as I reported a few weeks ago, Nikon only introduced the D5600 DSLR camera (and two Coolpix models: A300 and W100) to the US market.
Nikon D5600 body only: Adorama | B&H (Amazon still lists the grey market version only).

Nikon D5600 DSLR camera now shipping

The new Nikon D5600 is currently in stock at.
