The ISOs on the D7100 are about 1/4 stop lower than the D7000 by dxomark's measure - again very comparable to the D300 (Likely the D7100 should be shot about 1/3 stop hotter than the D7000 for lowest noise - and this definitely would cause issues for studio comparisons.). As with the D300 this seems to translate into relatively more highlight headroom. But the pixel level DR is more than one stop better than the D300, and .3 to .4 stops better than the D7000 (at ISOs from 200 to 1600)! The long and the short of it is that I'm finding that the D7100 just shrugs off a few blinkies in the whites. Another thing I'm finding with my body is that the matrix metering is very accurate - a good thing if you practice ETTR. Anyway, this is my advice: shoot it like you have no exposure slider in your editor.

That's really good information, Jim.  That jives with the ISO 1600-3200 limit many have reported.
