I posted 3 photos 2 in very challenging light condition and 1 in a sunny situation where the sensor clearly performs better. But this is just the point. In a sunny scene, 1600 iso is the right choise? And do the old cameras perform so bad setting high iso in a sunny scene?

Would someone propose definite settings to use so to compare the results from different D7100 cameras?

Roughly, the D7100 has gained some resolution but is not better in per-pixel noise. If you want, you can trade the resolution for less noise by downsampling the image properly. If you're not comfortable with digital operations, consider comparing large prints to the same paper size.

But if you really want less noise at high ISO you should consider a full-frame camera. The advance in DX is noticeable but not dramatic.

You can wait a while longer for proper reviews. DPR just added studio samples but they don't downsample (or upsample) to the same image size.

Have you tried my suggestions from the previous post (high-ISO NR and ADL adjustments in camera etc)?
