It confirms my impression that the D7100 is the top APS-C camera on the market at the moment. If only Nikon would make that buffer deeper, then it would be the almost perfect APS-C dslr.

DR is an outsting feature of the D7100 and Nikon ssem to have finally nailed a good balance between midtone contrast and DR tone curves, especially Portrait with ADL off (ADL, even low, looks a bit agressive for my taste, in particular the way it will likely flatten midtone contrast). Neutral shows a bit more DR but at midtone contrast cost, just like with the D7000.

Look at another thread. 15 pictures with 7 fps with compressed 12 bit 1.3 crop before speed is reduced.

It's ok if you are interested in the central part of image and happy with 12bits, but I still think they should have made it possible at full res and full bit depth, unless a D400 is coming next, always a possibility, but more and more unlikely. Canon may be bringing the 7D2 and it'll likely have deeper buffer and even higher fps at fullre/bit depth.

I think the point is that Nikon is sending a message that DX is not a pro option, since you cannot get NPS membership with the current updated DX line. Either you get the relatively old D300s or you need to get a D800 or D4 (not sure D600 entitles for NPS).
