Thanks Kim.....

Actually your posts were very helpful in helping me make my choice. In the end I went for the D3200 ...

Reason is how I would use the camera... I agree that not using a tripod and then trying to bracket shots is not ideal and most of the time will probably result in a misaligned set.

The group can correct me, but I seem to have read that the bracketing in the D5100 separated each shot by at least a couple of seconds anyhow, meaning that without a tripod it too will likely misalign.
