But to pick up on your other point, the "cropped" sensor of the D5100 will only take the image from the central part of a "full Frame" lens, which is similar to you taking the middle 67% of an image taken on a full frame camera. You are effectively cropping the ...

You would tend to get more perspective distortion with ...
