I did shoot an outdoor wedding last fall with both my DX and FF bodies, but I could have easily gotten by with two DX bodes and good glass.

Are you willing to just get by?

The D7100 will do a hell of a lot more than "get by". There are a few circumstances where one would need a D800 instead of a D7100. Very large prints are one of those situations and in that case using a D800 is probably just "getting by" because the shooter can't afford to go digital medium format. For low light there are better options than the D800. IMO that leaves cropping and again you are just getting by with the D800 because you don't have the focal length you need. If there is a "getting by" camera in the Nikon line up, it's the D800.
