Should not use these two for comparison, old man and a young boy, they are at lest 5-6 years or more apart. If the D5100 still cannot match or higher with the S3, then Nikon technology should not in the being.
Fuji S3 pro still looks very professional when comparing with Nikon D5100 a cheapy look camera.
