Definitely the D5100:

1) MP count doesn't really matter unless you're printing for huge size posters or billboards. If that's the case, 24MP is not even enough!

2) You'll realise someday the convenience of flip screen as it allows you to shoot in various conditions without having you to climb or sleep on the ground to reach the same level of the camera; not to mention taking "blind" shots until you get the right angle.

3) From what i've learned, focus speed and problems are not directly and shall not be blamed on the camera body itself. It has something to do with the lens and available light as well.

4) D5100 has many other features that outdoes the D3200 and again I'll stick to what I always say: It's all about the photographer that take good pictures, not the camera.

Let us know when you have bought your camera, happy shooting and welcome to the club!
