OK, I just bought a D7100 and seriously considered the D5300. My main camera is a D800 and I wanted a really good body to convert to IR. The factors that sent me to the D7100 included:

  • FPS
  • Bracketing
  • Pentaprism
  • Same battery as D800
  • AF
  • Controls

After a few days, I know that this is not a D800, but I can tell I'm going to enjoy using it. And I found a refurb that's immaculate for about $100 more than a new D5300. I do wish the D7100 would accept 10-pin accessories.
