Vari-Angle v Tilt LCD
I've owned/used cameras that had both types of tilt screens and I much prefer the variable angle screen on the d5100.
I understand that losing buttons isn't always the best, but I tend to believe that the variable LCD could be implemented without losing buttons, if they wanted to do so.
