Would help your credibility if you got the specs right. The D5100 has a flip screen.

I agree with Hammad, I love my D5100, a little bit better specs don't wow me to upgrade. My camera does everything I want it to do. :) Cheers-

Owning D5100, I don't think I need to upgrade, considering the picture quality is about the same and there is no major improvement. I really like my Nikdon D5100 long battery life. It never runs of of charge even I use it for days.
