Re: Confused between d5100 and d90

choosing between the D90 and D5100 is a tough choice. I'm wanting to get one as a second body to use with my D7000. D7000 + 16-35/4 VRII and D90/D5100 + 60/2.8 micro, for me the attraction for the D5100 is with the vari-angle rear LCD as a dedicated macro camera.

This is the side-by-side summary I did to help me try and decide:

there are pros and cons for both cameras, in some respects the D90 has a few more advanced features (ability to use a grip and therefore 2x cells, flash controller built in), and the D5100 of course has the 16mp sensor with better high ISO and dynamic range.

(need to decide on my FiftyOne: point2, point4, point8) (old stuff)
