@jp...no, you didn't waste your time. I appreciated your input into this thread. I'm merely repeating what's been posted on other sites. The menu options and controls of the D3200 is not as varied compared to the D5100. That's why I never really considered it. I was looking more for input and experiences from people that have used the D5100. If my response came across to you as something else, that wasn't the intention.
