Hi all.My D5000(stolen)is getting replaced with D5100.

I counted my D5000 as good to good plus.Reviews on 5100 show slight improvement in several areas.

I LIKE the (side)swivel MUCH better..., and more importantly;
the live view is like twise as fast - though 3x as slow as P+S's
with swivel.
(I got to try it in Best Buy ,-bought two outfits there)

Point is ; live view is MORE useable on D5100 as per D5000.

Reviews tell of (some) quirks.

Tell me what you think of yours - if you would.

I know Sony55 is MUCH better for what I am trying to do;(live view-as a P+S does).(though not a full swivel screen)

;for me - Sony(switch)MAY have cost too much;I have a Sigma 8-16,which I love,and...
'so lens mm span'
;my Tokina 10-17 was on my D5000 when it got stolen...

...;so Tues. my D5100 plus Tokina (NEW-AF model)10-17 for DX fomat,
should arive.

Guess,life is about choices!

(To complicate matters more ; I picked up a Minolta Maxima 70-300mm
,near mint condition a while back.(This AF lens works/should work on Sony cameras).)

AND - for size,weight and price,DX is "NOT BAD" for an SLR type camera.(save the sigma 8-16 monster lens - but ; it GIVES me the full wide I want -in recliniar).!

Anyway ;

what of YOUR 5100 do you like or dislike,and why...etc.

Thanks , Larry
