photo nuts: I don't understand. This is the best camera in its class, but only received the silver award. Why? Sure, it has its flaws but there's nothing better in its class (similar size and weight).
Perhaps because of the price bump
Deeso: So this innovation is more useful to videographers than photographers...
Thanks for make it clear :-)

Ben O Connor: G5 is very well and new... already GH-3 was lauched. ... now G 6... why hurry ?
Not just panasonic but all the producers really.
Except for the Canon 450-500-550-600-650D... :)
Michael_13: Great sharpness and no visible noise, but one thing bothers me:
Skin colors. Especially lips look very artificial to me. So far I've only known this problem from Panasonic.
That happens when you take pictures of pale redheads in winter :V
CameraLabTester: The movie button is relegated to the top front beside the shutter button and is alarmingly smaller and difficult to operate.
It was perfect on the D7000.
Why change things around just to say it's an upgrade?
In this case, ERGONOMICALLY, it is not. It's now more difficult to make movies with this thing. The LV button and Movie button are miles apart...
Indeed. We rather have an ISO button where the movie recording is now.
chillgreg: Ren Kockwell:
" it won't make much, if any, visible difference at less than 6-foot (2-meter) wide print sizes, and only if you use the very finest NIKKOR lenses and technique."
" Readers tell me that their Sigma 105 Macros don't work on the D7100."
" It's pretty much the same as 2010's D7000,"
" There's also an inexplicably silly 1.3x crop mode"
" Only the 15 central sensors can see horizontal lines ('cross type'), the rest only see vertical lines, just like the single focus sensor of the Nikon SP of 1956."
" The extra resolution means nothing in actual shooting"
" The D7100 and D700 are pretty much the same."
" If you've found the time and expense I incur to share all this for free... "
What a f#@$ing tosser.
Ken is master of contradiction he judges de camera at the start of the article then he ends
"The D7100 is so new that no one's seen a production model yet. Seeing how the D7000 is the best DX camera Nikon's ever made (I own one myself), I'll presume that the D7100 is more of the same great thing."
So basically you can dump the rest
marike6: Nikon pulled out all the stops on this update. I'm sure some will still desire a D400, but it's hard to imagine a nicer DX camera specs wise.
Weather sealing, no OLPF, AF to f8 means my using TCs with my 70-200 f4 VR. Nice.
IQ should exceed the already superb D5200 and if video quality is as good as the that camera, it's going to be a monster all-around DX shooter.
Looks like my other body is getting a baby brother.
You are right. There's always certain envy on fanboys when their brand fail to deliver a 100% perfect product. But hey. I'd be perfectly fine with the D7100, I'm not a sports journalist anyway.
While it's quite safe to assume that the D7100 is a killer camera for landscapes, portraits and city shooting, with 6fps and a relatively small buffer is hard to see it as a full replacement for the d300s. Sports shooters still have to look for "deprecated" models like the D300-D700 because the only model able to shoot over 8fps maintaining focus accuracy (D4) is way too expensive unless your news agency pays for it.
A D400 is still necessary for nikon even its is classified as niche product because Canon will unveil rather soon a 7DmkII which will be a speed demon. Very likely a "baby 1DX"
Now that there's a truly compact zoom the NEX series is starting to find the right balance.
Hinder: Is the human eye even capable of discerning between 1080 and 4X?
In a 85'' for sure. And by the way. Can you discern between what's on your HDTV and what's around it?
Debankur Mukherjee: The big question is - Do we really need 4k and 8k resolution at home ??
It depends on the size of your screen. Of course for wall sized displays (hence this 85'' set) it might be useful. Hardly for 40'' or smaller displays which can settle with 2K or 1080p..
TheEye: People still watch tv?
I don't know. Do you watch movies, or concerts? It doesn't has to be broadcast, you know...
Wasn't the commercial name of the stacked CMOS desing "EXMOR RS"?
Funny how these cameras get bashed while Point and Shots of similar size and price get praised.
I wonder how well the new sensor performs
A really compelling product. Fuji is taking some risks (X-Trans RAW support is still a work in progress) but thankfully they are pushing the market beyond the Canikon dominance. Those will still lead the market for a good while but I hope Fuji's brave stand makes them push some more innovation in the enthusiast range.
Deeso: Very interesting little camera, except for those who want the DOF control only a bigger sensor can bring.
I'm just stating that's the only thing that prevents me to get that camera because I find the rest of the feature set really appealing. For the same price there's some cheap m4/3 and APS-C mirrorless cameras that could fill the bill in regards of DOF (you don't have to go for FF)
Really hard to see any relevant improvement over previous generations.
mpgxsvcd: What we need is a compact camera with a good fast lens. Oh wait we already have that in the LX7. What do we need these new cameras for?
We already have Ferraris! Why do we need Peugeots?
