If you want to photograph in low light at iso's of 1600 or more then the d7100 is not the camera and the buffer sucks.

If you buy the Nikon camera grip for the d800 you can use aa batteries or the same battery as the d4.  With this setup you can get 6 frames a second.

If you haven't read my first comments in this thread, please do because I have owned the d4, d7100 and now the d800e.  If your going to buy the d800, then get the d800e.  With the d800e you will not have to post sharpen as much as the d800 and sometimes not at all.  With less sharpening and down sampling the noise is very low.
