Many people are set on one camera brand and one camera brand only. I must admit that I was once in that category as well. However, the D7100 changed my mind. I was hesitant on buying it as I knew that the D7200 would be out soon (but at that time nobody knew when). So I decided to pull the trigger and buy it. 55,000+ pictures later and I am thrilled that I bought this little gem! I have taken pictures right beside Canon owners and when they look at my pictures, they want to buy a 7100. One ...

For a few years I owned a D7000 and loved it. Coupled with the Tokina 11-16mm lens I produced my best work. Then I made the decision to upgrade to full frame and bought a D610. Well that ended up being a "downgrade"! A month ago I bought a second-hand D7100 from a second hand dealer, which only had a 380 shutter count. So far I am loving my D7100 and find myself using the D610 less and less. The D7100 is a very capable camera and produces some great pictures. Although I'm not a regular user ...

I bought a used D7100 to replace my old Nikon D300 for wildlife photography - particularly birds, both stationary and on-the-wing.  I also anticipated using it as a walk-around camera for traveling light, and as a backup for my D810.  I was hoping to see a significant improvement in low light/high ISO performance and anticipated the higher pixel density (24 mp) and resulting file size would lend itself to heavier cropping than the D300's 12 mp sensor.  I also expected to be able to use it ...

I won't bother writing all the details about the D7100. In fact I'll just state what's wrong with it and what I don't like. When you shoot in RAW and push the images in Lightroom or Camera Raw. There is fixed noise from what I could tell low quality silicon of the sensor itself. You will see horizontal lines in the shadow areas. And this is the case from what it looks like with all the D7100's. You can even check it for yourself here on DPReview if you look at some of the test shots. (The ...

this is one of the best mid range/semi pro cameras out there. when i sold my d7000 to get an expensive L lens for my canon full frame, i was kinda missing the ergonomics of the d7000. there's also something about nikon's shutter that's a joy to press. anyway, since the d7100 was out already that time, i bought one and paired it again with a 35mm 1.8g. with better resolution and focusing over its older brother, i often bring the d7100 over the 5d mark 3. when i need to shoot in raw-small, i ...

awesome camera!  but very heavy, and I just couldn't carry it around on photo jaunts, so I had to let it go and get a lightweight but great camera. those of you who don't mind the weight, this camera is really great.

Purchased this as a body only option early in 2014 as I suffered a failure of the auto-focus on the D3100 and just out of 2 year warranty. Having invested in lenses for Nikon during the period with the D3100 I thought it a wise move, however this is also found to have some autofocus/metering issues, apparently noted in recent appraisals by Nphoto magazine. The bigger disappointment came with the release of the D5300 and recently the D5500 which according to most test results show two vastly ...

Love the camera to death! Quality is great, but of course there are better cameras out there. I would suggest doing research on lenses before buying the camera with a kit lens. After purchasing a prime lens I don't even ever look at the kit lens that I bought with the camera body. Reviews on YouTube claim that it's impossible to change Aperture in live video mode, but it's not true. If you have a D lens you can do so. I love how fast the camera can take pics in Continuous mode, but you have ...
