Thanks for the full frame photos. I think my previous comment holds. Both photos look in focus but the D5100 photo requires twice the enlargement to equal the PowerShot. You want to stay under 67% enlargement on the D5100 and under 50% on the PowerShot. That's were the photos appear to soften. You need a longer lens but 300mm won't do it. You need a 500mm, maybe the Sigma 150-500mm. But now we're talking big bucks, like $1000. In any case your gear seems to be working properly.

Regards,
Len
