There are normal and RGB histogram views on the D5200. Just press the up arrow when reviewing a picture to cycle through the views. Make sure the histogram views are enabled in the 'playback display options' in the 'playback menu'. There isn't a depth of field preview button, but there is no need for that with a digital camera because you can just take a shot and look it on the display immediately.

My wife got a t5i and my daughter got a Nikon D5200 for Christmas. After playing with them both, I can't understand the much lower rating for the Canon. I can't tell a lot of difference in image quality between the two, even at 100%. If the Nikon has an Historigram and depth of field preview I can't find it, and the ease of use, for me at least, clearly goes to the Canon.
