Just a quick update, I picked up D7100 with 70-300 and been taking  pictures around the house. Really like the solid feel and grip of the camera. Also, camera (with 70-300 mounted) is not as big as I had expected, especially compared to my GH3 with 100-300mm mounted.

On the IQ, the story is not that great (so far). Granted, I have only used the slow lens..... I am very disappointed with the amount of noise in the pictures. When compared with GH3 + 100-300 mm (nothing scientific), GH3 seems to be producing a lot cleaner JPGs out of the camera than D7100.

Oh well, I will try it out for few days and if I am still disappointed then I will return it and either get D5200 or just go back to m4/3.
