Re: Nikon D7000 vs D5100

Not sure all the differences but depending on where you are coming from camera wise one thing that was a deal breaker for me with the 5100 is it's lack of having the focus motor built into the camera body. For many that isn't a big deal but if you have older lenses without focus motors in the lens, or plan on buying any used glass (perhaps even some new too) you may have lenses that are manual focus only. Since I had (Still do) a D50, several of my lenses would have been manual focus only, so every time Nikon would come out with a new camera the first thing I would check is to see if it had the focus motor or not... which eliminated many cameras unless I wanted to replace Glass too.
