Okay, so it's possible that this question has been asked before, but I can't seem to find a thread specifically about these two cameras.....so I'm starting one. Please forgive me if there is one out there comparing these two cameras and feel free to post the link within this thread. I am new to DSLRs and I have narrowed down my search to two. The first is the Nikon D3100 and the second is the Nikon D5000. My instinct is to go with the D3100 simply based on the higher megapixels, but am I missing something? What would you do????
