Although it wasn't expected until later this week, Best Buy is beating other retailers to the punch and releasing the Nikon D5100 digital SLR.

Pricing is just as mentioned before: $899.99 with the 18-55VR kit lens. The bundle does not, however, include the external ME-1 microphone pictured here.

In case you've forgotten about the mid-range D5100, here's a refresher on some of the specs:

  • DX-format 16.2-megapixel CMOS sensor
  • EXPEED 2 image processor
  • ISO range:100 to 6,400 (Can be raised to ISO 25,600 at Hi 2)
  • Records full HD 1080p clips at 24/25/30fps (includes autofocus in video mode)
  • Swiveling 3-inch Vari-angle LCD monitor (921k-dot resolution)
  • 11-point AF system
  • Continuous shooting at 4fps
  • GPS compatible with optional unit
  • 10% lighter than D5000 DSLR

If you already have some lenses hanging around and want to save some cash, you could hold off and pre-order the body-only version from Amazon, which is priced at $799.99. It should start shipping on April 21st. Either way, you'll get free shipping. Score!

      @Bjarne-Winkler
      Last week there was an article about some other Nikon camera and that article also had the exact same D7000 picture! I made a post pointing that out, but it either went unread or was ignored as here we are with the same problem. At least it isn't a picture of a Kodak Brownie! :)

      @Bjarne-Winkler Umm, the picture shows "D5100" on the camera. Maybe they fixed it after your post?
