Well it has been about a year and nearly 10k shots with the Nikon 5100.   I am very happy with this body.   Its very versatile, doing all I have asked of it.  The high ISO performance is very good, allowing me to explore a broad range of shots.  The only thing more I would want would be for a faster frame rate for sports and other action shots but even this is not bad, just icing on a very good cake.   I've added a Tamron 17-50mm F/2.8 SP XR Di II VC to my kit and this is turning into an exceptional all purpose lens, especially considering the price.   If you are looking for fast glass in this zoom range I would recommend looking at this lens.   Is it as good as the equivalent Nikkor glass?   I would say its close but no, however, it is more than good enough for my level of skill at this point.   I will be putting it through its paces in the coming weeks during a bit of a vacation.
