I like to shoot "Home Movies" HD1080P at 30fps so that rules out my D7000 for Video.
The pivoting LCD is extremely handy on the D5100.
You might also look at the V1. FullTime AutoFocus is very good,
but the ISO is limited to 3200 while the D5100 will go to 6400
There are lots of used D5100 cameras and kits in the buy sell forum including mine.
I do not need a 4th camera and the V1, D7000 (that my wife uses for Event Stills), and D800 share batteries and memory cards.
Again the V1 is tops for FullTime AutoFocus, but I have the D800 set at AutoISO 25,600
