Main selling point for me was the sensor, compare the dynamic range at base ISO with the bigger players and the 5100 stacks up well (often better). My post editing is pretty basic, final cropping and sizing with most of the adjustments being selective exposure. Shooting in RAW allows me to take full advantage of the sensors DR for the sunset photos where I can get proper exposure in the sky and foreground. I carry a basic 4 lens kit on the bike.

That being said a number of the photos in this thread were taken with my Canon G11, quite an amazing point and shoot if you do your part right
