>>"full Auto mode"<<

I was having some difficulty understanding some of your comments otherwise. I spent a summer shooting with the D5100. Since video requires using Aperture Priority & I was intermittently shooting stills & video, I majored on shooting Aperture mode. It's a little clumsy, but learnable.

Then last year, I bought a D7000. The D7000 will be easier to use with "manual" lenses. Beyond that, the menu, and physical controls are far better on the D7000. If I have to shoot some serious stuff, I'd use the D7000 everytime. In fact, I would use my D300 over the D5100, unless I wanted to shoot video.

As far as the 18-300mm VRII, I have been very disappointed. Way too soft @ 300mm which is what I bought it for. My 70-300VR was much sharper, but doesn't have the range I need for Track.
