Unless you're printing up billboards, anything past 10 mp is academic. You have to go from 6 to 24mp to double the lines/mm or dpi. That swiveling LCD makes it a lot easier to get odd perspectives and shot angles. I'm too old to twist like a pretzel trying to get those shots with a fixed LCD (not to mention macro shots). I do like the newer next generation processor in the D3200, but I'm not sure how much better the image will be compared to the D5100 because of it.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.
