Hi Billy and welcome to the forum.
I think you've already had some great advice given by the previous posts that answer the points you raised that have caused you some confusion over your D5100. All I will add is that the D5100 is a good camera, but I'm wondering if you feel that it's aimed more at a beginner and not someone like yourself with a vast amount of experience with film cameras. To an extent you would be correct, the D5100 is a beginner's camera, but it's sort of a cross-over as it may appeal to the enthusiast too. However, the D7000 is the next rung up the ladder and is firmly aimed at the enthusiasts. It has more direct access for adjusting various settings via strategically placed buttons, wheels and dials, whereas the D5100 you will only find some of these deep inside the menu system. So it saves you time. The D600 is like a full-frame version of the D7000 and it appears to have been placed in the range to tempt users who have got a D7000 who want to make the step up to full-frame, but who have been put off in the past by the sheer cost involved of making that leap.
