Do more with your camera. The list of extras you get is QUITE big.

Like?

  • 10 fps burst rate, no compromises
  • 12 fps burst rate, cropped
  • Fast continuous AF during 1080 24/30/60p video
  • HDR
  • In camera panoramas stitching
  • Access to AF lenses from 80s (Minolta mostly)
  • Faster AF
  • Live view always available with no compromises
  • Excellent low light abilities
  • In camera stabilization
  • Focus peaking

And much much more.

Here's a quick copy-paste from someone else's post, when comparing to a D5100 I believe:

1080/60p/24p vs 1080/30p/24p
Fast AF in Video vs None
Stereo Mics vs Mono Mic
15 Point AF vs 11 Pt AF
Faster AF vs Slower AF (See charts below - and yes, I've tested both of these cameras and found the results to be the same)
12/10 FPS vs 4fps
Wireles Flash Commander vs None
High Speed Flash Snyc vs None
Peaking Focus vs None
Kelvin WB Adjustment vs None
HDR vs None
Sweep Panorama vs None
Lens Correction for CAs, Distortion, Vignetting vs CAs and Distortion only
IBIS (Every lens Stabilized) vs Lens Based
100%/1.04x EVF vs 95%/.78x OVF
