With all respect.
As you seem to be new to internet culture as well, my first advise is to develop a good sense of what kind of information in the internet has what kind of credibility and impact - it is not equal.
It seems to be a culture in photo fora to "find" problems in new gear, if real or not. There has to be one - even with ludicrous workflows most wouldn't do in their lifetime, triggers fear and doubt with those not familiar with the topic.
Don't start your experience with your new camera with "testing". Unless you have some background in testing, danger is pretty high that you will end up doing wrong tests with wrong conclusions.
The D5200 is a formidable camera. Like all technical gear you can drive it hard to develop some flaws. Here is an image taken with the D4, Nikon's current top of the line camera. and pretty expensive too. This image is taken with a camera which is not faulty. Just to show that there is a grey zone of things where you need to know what is technically ok and what not. Would you go nervous if your camera produces such an image? Yes? Me not, because it depends on other things beyond the "fault" of the camera.
Enjoy aour new D5200 and rather focus on sharpening your own skills before you spend time and effort to finally end up with potentially wrong conclusions.
