Summary: I like the camera but im dissappointed that it didnt have a strap and the bottom where the battery is doesnt have a cover :( other than that its good and i like the fact that is has a rechargeable battery
Summary: I bought the nikon D5100 in March and I was extremely excited about it. It took wonderful pictures until about 2 months ago. The pictures were no longer focused especially in one area of the photos and the lens would make a weird noise when I would focus. I thought maybe it was the lens so I tried a different lens but the pictures are still poor and blurry.
Summary: First of all, this camera takes very good pictures, which is the main reason I bought it. Given the price, 5 STARS for image quality, features and convenience of use. Second, I got the body (no kit lenses, which seem to have pretty mediocre ratings from users), along with the Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX (5+ STARS) and the Nikon 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR AF-S DX (4+ STARS for athletic events).
Excerpt: The camera itself works great and I am really happy that I chose the D5100. Only problem that I'm very upset about is that the charger does not charge the battery. I have had it plugged in over night and longer and the light on the charger continues to show a constant flickering. AND does not charge the battery. This is so inconvenient for me because I am overseas for the next 4 months! The cheapest NEW charger I've found is $50.
Summary: I've had the Nikon D5100 just a few weeks shy of a year. I went shooting a few days ago and took about 200 photos only to discover that after maybe 20 everything else was BLACK! Apparently this is an issue with this caamera. I've just shipped the camera back to Nikon for either a repair with a one year warranty (standard is 6 mths), a new camera or a full refund. I think this is a manufacturer's defect.
