Thank you all for your responses.

I definitely ruled out the mirrorless options I was considering i.e. Olympus OM-D E-M5, Sony NEX-7, Fuji X-100, Fuji X-PRO 1. The Fujis are extremely tempting and seem to be capable of phenomenal IQ in a small package and I really don't mind a fixed FL, but issues with speed, high ISO performance and price are holding me back.
Going to skip the 3200 and it was down to the D5100 vs D7000.

I figured they have the same sensor but the D7000 is 40% heavier for the same sensor and probably very similar IQ at the end of the day. Although it has better AF, more settings/buttons without going into the menu, it is also a bit more expensive. So I've decided on the 5100. Thank you again.
