You're on to something there, Jim.  The D90/300 was pretty noisy indeed past about ISO 800.  The D7000 allowed one to shoot way low and pull shadows as never before in the APSC realm, and it's an endearing quality for sure.  The D7100 isn't a five stop shadow pull machine, but really, the other benefits kind of swamp any of that.   The focus seems very good.  It's been kind of a refreshing change from the relentless fusillade of batteries and deodorant cans that greeted the introduction of the D7000.  Some of the trolls and the ensuing pie fights are legend.

Speaking of refreshing, if any of you haven't, check out Rudy's bifs taken with the D7100 and the humble 70-300VR.  Jim's stuff is great and shows what can be done with this camera from distance.  You know a veteran bird guy with heavy artillery is going to deliver, but it's been nice to see a relative newcomers put up such good work with a consumer zoom.

Lots of pixels, especially the unfiltered kind, allow you to throw out almost the whole picture but still maintain quite acceptable IQ when conditions and lens aren't perfect.
