I upgraded from a D700 to a D7100 because I want a DX sensor camera for sports (I also have a couple of full frame cameras, but at my age, having the extra reach with a hand-holdable lens is important).

Based on both test photos and a couple of my grandson's lacrosse matches, the auto-focus is much more responsive than the D7000).  However, like my D800, the quality of the lens can become an issue.  When I shoot with my Nikon 70-200 VRII, and my Nikon 300 f4, images are usually quite good.  Even if fine tuned, images with my 18-200 are often a little soft.

Great camera - but the sensor is very demanding for good technique and lens sharpness...
