  • Conclusion: The D5100 appears to be another strong addition to Nikon’s consumer DSLRs. It maintains the small size and light weight similar to the earlier D40, D60, D3000, D3100 and D5000, but its electronics are updated to a DX-format sensor that is the best among current Nikon DSLRs and a high-resolution LCD...

  • Conclusion: If you’re in the market for a new DSLR you can hardly wrong with the Nikon D5100. It takes solid photos and videos, offering the response shutterbugs demand as they move from point-and-shoots to “real” cameras. We weren’t too thrilled with the kit lens, however.
  • Pros: Quality 16-megapixel images, 3-inch vari-angle LCD (921K pixels), ISO range of 100 to 25,600
  • Cons: Kit lens is just a starting point, Awkward control system, Video good not great

  • Summary: The D5100 sits just above the D3100 in Nikon's product lineup, and as such, it combines its younger sibling's ease of use with a slightly more advanced feature set. The D5100's trump card, however, is its advanced 16 MP sensor, inherited from the D7000.
  • Pros: Excellent image quality, Unintimidating interface, but with plenty of manual control, Articulated, high-res LCD screen, Sophisticated AF system for the price, Easy manual selection of off-center AF points, Unusually fast Live View AF for a low-end DSLR (but still relatively slow compared to mirro...
  • Cons: Sub-optimal placement of some second-tier controls (like live view switch), Movie shooting button 'orphaned' from live view switch, Buggy Live View / Movie Mode (movies aren't necessarily recorded at set aperture), No live histogram in live view, AF still a little sluggish in live view mode, full...

  • Summary: All in all, I absolutely love the Nikon D5100. It’s an easy-to-carry and easy-to-use entry-level DSLR. The image quality is impressive and Nikon’s growing line of AF-S lenses for use with the D5100 moves it to the top of my recommendation list for new DSLR owners.

  • Excerpt: While nipping at the heels of its top level sibling, the D7000, this baby has a couple of advantages: a smaller size and arguably a less challenging user interface. It is in fact an excellent prosumer or enthusiast camera.

  • Excerpt: The Nikon D5100 ($899 with lens) is a "premium" entry-level digital SLR, if there is even such a category. It's a step above the D3100, but not nearly as fancy as the D7000. (It's quite a bit like the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, which sits between the Rebel T3 and EOS-60D.
