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?

No it is a model below the d5100 but it got updated first.  It's main lack is it does not have the flip out screen and does not have quite as good battery life.  There are other minor differences but to most new users they won't matter or even get noticed.

See my plan (in my profile) for what I shoot with. See my gallery for images I find amusing.
