D5100 is better in most respects....

The only pluses the D500 has IMHO are;

  • OVF focus points & grid are nicer

  • body is a little deeper and fits nicer in hand

  • button layout is nicer.

IQ above ISO 400 is where the D5100 really pulls significantly ahead,......the ability to tweak contrast applied when using ADL is also highly underated

I looked at a D5100, but I am still sticking with the D5000.

I didn't like the viewfinder focus point implementation and lack of grid on the D5100. I also didn't like the way they scattered the buttons due to the change in the screen.
