#16. "RE: Which Nikon?"
In response to In response to 2


Summit, US
          

I just bought a D5100. The price certainly was right and it was a Christmas gift to myself. Well, I found myself looking for very quick and more direct ways around the camera to set ISO, white balance, picture controls and other things. You can use the (i) setting to get to many of these things but it isn't as explicit or direct as pressing a button as on the D7000 or D300.I have also set the "Fn" button for ISO. That's pretty fast. I haven't made any prints yet but understand they are the same quality as the D7000.
The point is once you become used to the convenience of setting these things more directly, it's hard to become too enthusiastic about the user features on the D5100 IMHO. For me, in terms of "usability", the D5100 is a step down from the D7000. But, of course, so was the price.
"Nothin' for nuthin" as my father used to say. You get what you pay for. For me, the D5100 was a step down even though it was offered at a great price, price isn't everything!
