    but I did my homework and read up abt the difference, seems like d5100 produce better quality images. but of course the d90 has more user control. so I need feedbacks

    Perhaps TS should look at this... pretty good summary,

    Nikon D7000 vs D5100 vs D90 Camera Comparison

    Anyway, other than what was mention, the main thing was that TS had to look into the following,

    1) Size and weigh
    2) features - vari-angle LCD, great movie mode, in-build motor
    3) form factor/ ergonomic (grip design, button and dial's layout, etc).

    D5100 is a newer camera as oppose to D90, although was consider as an entry-level camera, it produces very very good images, the lack of inbody motor might be a deal breaker for some, but seriously if TS already have this camera, maybe he/she should try out manual focusing and play around with it till he/she could save up enough for a D7000 or D700 (D800).
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    in a way, I would see it as a downgrade. D5100 has a new sensor, processor, and a higher native iso.... the above link illustrate this very clearly.
