With the 16 GB card and the wireless adapter included, the only thing you might want to purchase is a flash and maybe a tripod. You will get many years of use out of this.
Thanks, Matt. It has a built-in flash, and I already have a tripod. And yes, the Nikkor lenses have the VR feature.
My neighbor has the 5100 and really likes how easy the firmware is to use. That means a lot to me too - I have a Pentax P&S which is a nice little camera but a PITA to menu your way in to whatever it is that you want to set up.
