I wasn't reading the instructions carefully, I just assumed that to set the camera to choose the focus selection point was a menu entry under AF. The "i" button is new to me and I didn't look into how it works. I guess I was in too much of a hurry to try the camera and assumed that the layout of the controls was similar to the other Nikon DSLR cameras I had used. I also got the flash information from the data on the Adorama website, which I also probably misread. The D5100 is nice in that it is light, but it isn't really that small with the 18-55 VR lens. This point was brought home to me by my stopping at one of the few remaining cameras stores in my area this afternoon. While there I asked about the Olympus OM D E-M5, and to my delight (maybe misfortune!) one of the clerks had his personal Olympus with him at the store, and demonstrated it to me. It seemed to me to make the D5100 with the 18-55 VR lens look huge by comparison. It is be nicely made, and a little bit lighter than the Nikon. It is also nearly twice the price, and most likely will present a steeper learning experience (at least to me) than the D5100 if I choose to go with it instead of the Nikon.
