Are you using Matrix Metering or CW/Spot?  If you are comparing the exposure of the scene element under the focus point to that of an earlier Nikon, and you're in MM, you will notice that the D7100 gives slightly less weight to what's under the focus point - a trait common to all the upper-level Nikons. This can result in apparent under or over-exposure of the entire scene depending upon the relationship of the subject to the field.

Early users of the D7100 reported that it seemed to have somewhat higher highlight headroom, which generally means that the reference brightness for the meter has been moved down somewhat in the DR of the sensor, but this would be accounted for in the response curve. These initial observations have quieted down.

Are you shooting RAW or JPEG?
