Summary: No problem with the product but the delivery is of a bit concern. Please place a request with some delivery options in case you think you will not be collecting this personally otherwise they will just leave the big box in open at your doorstep. I was lucky that no one picked up mine form my doorstep.
Summary: I purchased the D5100 bundle with a 18-55mm and a 55-300mm lenses in June 2012 on Amazon from a company called Cameta Camera for $1020. I have taken about 3500 pictures using mostly the 18-55mm lens 80% of time during last few months. The pictures were great. However, during my last trip to the Mammoth Cave, the 18-55mm lens stopped zooming, i.e. the lens got stuck and can only move between 24 and 35mm.
Summary: the camera and lenses as all nikon brand is very good, the rest of accesories of the kit are not so good, for example the tripod is so light for the weight of the camera, remote control never worked and the telephoto and wide angle lens, I never got, my money was back but I had to buy the items left in other store
Camerta Camera needs to take care of their customers.

Summary: I was so excited to receive my new camera and began to use it right away. I use the camera for some work assignments out of town. I was unable to access the pop up flash and was unable to contact Cameta Cameras until I returned from my trip. It was 32 days after I received the camera. They told me they did not have a replacement camera and I needed to contact Nikon to fix my problem.
Summary: The camera works great. The product came with an extra pack of a telephoto and wide angle lens kit. The package was ripped open when I received it and those lens will not attach to the camera. Everything else I am happy about. I am just slightly disappointed that I chose to get a package and one of the parts of it does not work. Love the Nikon D5100. Camera works great. All the other accessories are very nice--especially the camera bag.
Summary: I've always been a Nikon fan and use a D3X myself. I purchased the camera for my daughter as a good introductory camera with an excellent reputation with good build and excellent performance. I would have scored the camera 4 stars, unfortunately its not value for money at all when purchased from Amazon. While the camera is great unfortunately AMAZON is a complete CON!
Summary: I was looking forward to receiving this camera. When it arrived, there was no seal on the camera package, and the components inside were obviously opened before. You can make your own assessment, but to me this is very wrong. I am sending it back and hope I get a new one back. Later: I contacted returns, and they promptly accepted the return. I will report back.
Summary: I currently own a D5000. I have owned the previous D40x, D60 and like photography. I got the D5100 expecting a decent upgrade. Unfortunately I was kind of disappointed when comparing it with my D5000. The D5100 feels more amateur than the D5000 does. It is smaller (almost too small) and difficult to grab if you have a 18-200 as I do.
