I bet those are the people that bought the 5100 for the sensor only and 'bang for the unit-of-currency' versus a more 'prosumer' camera.  Not the typical mid-range consumer and no doubt some are frustrated with the interface  :^)

... haven't been impressed with the low light capabilities of the 24mp sensors (5200), but that isn't a universal opinion.

Looking at pixel level, maybe less capable..?  For same print/view size as the apple-to-apple, the 24 MP is probably about the same as 16 MP for low(er) light.  ~Same with benefits being more useable resolution in good light, etc.  However, I haven't actually played with a 24 MP file, either...

Good post.
