Totally different decision - went with D5100

Thank you to everyone for all of the advice and suggestions. After much thought, I ended up going in a different direction. The deals on the D5100 were too tempting and I increased my budget to get the deal at Best Buy with the 2 kit lenses. Although it doesn't have the motor, it does have all that I felt I needed in the way of manual controls.

I hope to get one of the suggested macros once my budget recovers. I am also considering extension tubes. My husband is looking for ideas for a birthday present and although a good macro lens is not in the budget, extension tubes would be :).

I am having a lot of fun practicing with the D5100 and hope to get my keeper rate higher by figuring out which settings work the best for my style of shooting. So far, I am satisfied with my decision.
