Depends when you want to start shooting and how much money you have to spend. The 5100 is an excellent camera, and is an excellent bargin. Expect to become a better bargin when the 5200 starts hitting store shelves. I own a D60 and would love the ability to take video and the sensor and focusing upgrades are a big step up no matter what model camera I compare it to. With that said the D60 was still my go to camera on Christmas morning as the kids were opening their presents. Just because new stuff came out it doesn't mean my old camera won't take pictures anymore.
Has there been an update on release? I was expecting to see this before Christmas but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. :-)
Wonder what the hold-up is?
