Sometimes you get what you pay for - sometimes not? This is a huge difference. I suspect Nikon will add a larger buffer in the D7100s. Geeezzz. Now the question becomes, how fast does the buffer emppty? This could be critical for a sports shooter!!!!!!

Yes but if you're shooting in crop mode it's  16 images at 12MP vs 6 at 24MP.

I often shoot sports and action in RAW on my D90, but I suspect I'm one of few. The handful of sports shooters I've met have all shot JPG.

Hopefully the limiting factor is the speed of the card (ie. hope the hardware writes as fast as the card can handle)
