Ok so we all know the spec differences between the two cameras but i'm wondering how much they matter to someone who doesn't shoot a lot of sport/action but simply wants a very good camera to capture family events, holidays, etc in superb quality.

Given the requirements listed above I'd go with a D7100 and the best glass, or a used D700.

Even a D5100 does a fantastic job for family stuff. Come to think of it, so does a D40.

In my experience, most people buy a D800 and really have no use of it's strengths. Probably not the answer you want if you're looking to buy a gee-wiz DSLR.

A large majority of family events are indoor, i would say that a DX camera's extra reach is irrelevant an the better high ISO of the FX format is a big advantage. Don't really see the D7100 being ideal.
