Nikon D90 or D5100 spec comparison
Aug 20, 2011

The Nikon D90 and D5100 are the same price ... but which one do you get?

This is a side-by-side comparison of the spec table:

I don't own either camera (yet), but I've played with both in store

I'm a D7000 shooter looking for a additional body. And there are a bundle of 'D90 vs D5100' threads in here, so I know I'm not the only one trying to decide which one to get.

For me, the D90's AFD lens compatibility issue could be irrelevant since I have that covered with my D7000 (and my three keeper lenses are all AFS). I'm actually looking for a camera to dedicate to my macro lens, so the D5100 could be the better option mainly because of the vari-angle LCD. Frankly I'm still undecided, there is something about the D90 that means I cannot rule it out.

... maybe the link will be of interest to some.
