I would really recommend the D5100, despite the specifications not being as impressive. The D3200 packed far too many pixels on a sensor that just doesn't deliver the proper results. The images I've seen on the D3200 vs the D5100 left a lot to be desired. Unless you absolutely need 24 megapixels, or HD video is a focus, I'd opt for the D5100.

The main difference between the two is that the D3200 has a higher resolution that offers better slightly color depth but the D5100 has a higher ISO boost and tends to do a little better in low light.

The D5100 also has a flip out screen if that is important to you? The D3200 is a bit smaller and lighter.

Really though the differences between the two cameras is very narrow and most users would never be able to tell the difference between the two.
