David Kinston: At first glance I was excited by the 'new 1.3 crop mode'. How disappointing that it turned out to be 1.5x1.3 = 1.95 crop mode!

Well it always was a crop sized sensor. APS-C.

If you are using DX lenses, it's still only a 1.3 crop. If you are using FX lenses then like u said, 1.5x1.3.

There should be a D400. According to Nikon Europe, they have been told that "..the D7100 is not the D300(s)'s replacement.."

This should keep the D300 crybabies happy...

Tomskyair: Specs look great, like the omission of the OLPF for better detail and the improved AF. Coming from a D300 I would have loved to see a true successor to it of course. But if that mythical "D400" doesn't come the D7100 may pretty well take its place in my camera bag and breathe new life in my 12-24 and 16-85 DX optics.

I don't really care about the "small buffer" as I usually don't employ the "spray 'n pray" shooting style. But I definitely like the shape of the D7100's body compared to the D7000 (and lesser extent also the D90): despite almost identical dimensions with the D7000 the D7100 looks much beefier and is more ergonomically shaped. This goes especially for the grip which is more rounded and wider almost as on a D300/D700. Actually that was my primary dislike with the D7000; although having rather small hands the D7000 always felt edgy and awkward to me and I could never befriend myself with its ergonomics. The D7100 looks much more promising in this regard.

Actually, if you've held the D600 in your hands, the D7100 is almost identical. The grip part is sharper and easier to hold. The D7000(which I own) has a rounder grip and if it gets a little moist(or wet) down she goes. The D600 and D7100 grabbier edge finger grip should hold better.

Have to wonder if the buffer increases if you use the "M" 12MP setting ? Hopefully it does.

If the recipient of the photo is happy with the result, whether he is a paying customer or not, then we have to consider success. For those who are claiming this REAL or NOT real, too bad life goes on and we must accept it. How many times have you sold some of your work and not modified it using any type of software. Even in film photography, all kinds of processing tricks are used to make a customer happy !

Pretty good zoom range, I guess the fellow in Mockba used the AF function, which seems to be a bit slowish. Because in MF, this should not have happened. Unless the guy zooomed first, then re-set focus, then zoomed again, and re-set focus again. Any clue what has happened here? I am trying to deconstruct this zoom shot. Yes, the Canon and Nikon have longer ranges, but they are 1/2.3-inch sensor. And the new Fujinon 770 & 750 have 30x zoom range but only a 1/2-inch sensors.

What I think might have happened.... camera was on a tripod, that is obvious in the extreme tele shot at the very end, but the operator was clumsy or the fluid head was not good, if there even was one. You cannot really pan/tilt the camera at these extreme focal lengths AND operate zoom ring AND pull focus. Not by yourself, you would need a 2nd person for ZOOM and/or focus.

Maybe he didnt have it on AF-C, but on AF-S, means he has to re-press halfway to set the focus again. I know my Nikons do that during video.

inevitable crafts studio: super update nikon !!

it shows how far the d3 was, and the d700, when you consider the minor updates after nearly 3 years.

also i like the 16Mp

only thing i dont like is no screenprodector, dont tell me how tough the glass is, no screenprotector is no screenprotector.

The glass might be made of the Corning glass on most cell phones...CANNOT be scratched !!
