When you consider that the average snapper/photographer only ever has use for 6x4 enprints with the odd 10x8 enlargement and web posting, (hell that describes most of us) it really is overkill and just serves to put pressure on your computer and clog up hard drives.
As to the comment about being able to crop in more, well why not just add a digital zoom feature as on most compacts, after all it's the same thing or is it me that's just jaded with the whole digital marketing scene just lately.
By the way Ian is the viewfinder still like looking down a tunnel as in the D3100, this is what turned me of that model compared to the D5100?
