Nikon D5100: A Lightweight, 16MP APS-C D-SLR

The new Nikon D5100 D-SLR is a compact and lightweight DX-format camera. The body is about two-thirds the size of a D300, recording on SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. The similarly compact kit lens, an 18-55mm VR, provides good balance, and, along with my Nikon SB-900 Speedlight, all fits neatly into a compact camera bag. The grip on the D5100 was a little smaller than what I was used to, but I soon grew accustomed to it.

Very nice review. I’m currently thinking about buying it, but the release of the D3200 give me doubt to wait a bit longer for a possible D5200. Anyway, job well done! - Aflac Assist LLC
