now I am kind off confused. Is the Nikon D3200 better than the D5100? I was thinking higher number means newer/better model but now I don't know. 3200 only has 58 reviews on best buy and the 5100 has a couple hundred. Does that mean the 3200 is a newer model?

Yes the D3200 is a new model but in a diferant range. The D3200 is a new model replacing the D3100. The D5100 is about to be replaced by the D5200. Thats why the prices are all over the place and don't tell you which is the better model. The D3xxx sits under the D5xxx in the Nikon range. The style of the camers are diferant athough in the same body. the D3xxx are a little more help menu and gimics and the D5xxx is a bit more take me serious. They are how ever both counted as entry models.
