So what has been your experience with AF consistency from D7000 to D7100

I had the D7000 since it was released and replaced it with the D7100 on the day it came out..

Since its "spring" (using quotes cuz its snowing right now) I've used the D7100 to shoot high school Rugby and youth indoor football (american).

For outdoor field sports (only rugby so far) i find the D7100 more reliable then the D7000.  Im not saying the D7000 was bad.. but the D7100 has yet to miss a target.  Out of a few hundred shots i'd always find a few front/back focus images on the D7000.

Where the D7100 has won me over is in the dark university 'field houses' where spring youth football is played. (think darker then a jr. high gym with 1/2 the lights on).  The D7000 struggled with this venue last year but the AF on the D7100 has been amazing.

To sum up... My D7100 is way more consistent then my D7000.
