    Shameless bump.  I’m also in the market.

    Firstly I am not a Nikon person- so when I was looking through these two and the specifications some of their language/ specification were forgien to me.

     I liked the 5100 over the 3200.  I think the big thing the 3200 has over the other is the amount of megapixels.  And to be honest I don’t know why anyone buying a entry level camera needs this many mega pixels!  I have a 15 m-pixel camera, and depending on what and why I am shooting I am constantly taking it down to shoot as few as many, because it takes too long to loud a 24 m-pixel picture onto the internet, when that is going to be its only use.  

    I liked some of the fun things that you could do with the other- like the in-camera HDR, and the in camera special effects.  If you do not have image editing programs such as photoshop these features could be fun to play around with.  

    Both had good reviews.  

    What do you intend to use the camera for?
