The Nikon D5100 is an excellent camera.

Hello I never joined a club before but have always had a Nikon around or for a while a fuji pro but I won't speak of that . So can I join in the fun ? Is there a club house and secret hand shake ? Always wanted that but closest I got was a treehouse in the backyard . I have a D90 got it used with 2300 clicks not to bad and I have a ton of accesories from my other incarnations of Nikons I have had . Just got the 105 the old one with the sharper optics but weird sound's and I kept a 28 to 300 aspherical . Both work well for pictures I am pulling together my studio lighting hopefully I can take a good picture someday .

That is very, VERY debatable

All technical knowledge and fluff, the guy can't take a good picture to save his life...

Another opinion :shrug:

I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder.

dpreviews is also a great place to look up info on cameras and lenses.
