Since I am an old gent, and on social security, I have to watch my pennies closely. With that said, I had already decided I was going to take the D3100 back that my son got for me about 10 days and get the D5100. I was trying to wait until Bestbuy puts in on sale again. Anyway, today they did lower the price somewhat, not what I was looking for but, they had the price of the D5100 with kit lens at $849.99 I quickly took the D3100 back I picked it up..
My old point and shoot camera with broken case was in the corner crying, because it knew that it was on its last day. So, to keep the old pointy and shooty from feeling too bad, I allowed it to take a picture of the new crew on the block ..
Going to take a couple days to familarize myself, and then I am going to shoot away..(big old grin)

I will say this camera is a LOT!! Going to take some time to even get close on this..Coming from a know-nothing to this is quite a jump.
The funniest this was what my wife said. I am a skinny guy..6'3" tall at 135 lbs. My wife said "the camera is bigger than you"...I fell out.
