No contest in regards to the 2 camera's the S5 does not have the dedicated backing of someone like Nikon it has to use nikon mounts or other top end like canon. D3100 has battery grip option no clue where jonjo1 got his info from but all his points are void. The D3100 on every website beats the S5 pro hands down in nearly all features. Does not have better image quality or lighting than the D3100 its impossible view the specs!! you will see iam not lying and also D3100 has auto focus and 1080p HD video as a bonus. S5 pro is a donkey in comparision.

no contest, The 3100 is a DSLR entry level camera, it hasn't got half the features of the S5, the s5 produces better pictures out of camera.

The S5 is built on a weather sealed body, The S5 is a more robust camera with the option to add a battery grip, the D3100 has no such option.

The S5 works with virtually all nikon F mount lenses, has better lighting options and better colour.

There's no difficulty deciding which is the more superior camera. Even though the fuji is older, it is still better than the d3100.
