Put me in the impressed with Nikon camp. If I were buying into a new system the D7100 looks like a killer camera for $1200.

Even if the 7D mk II is a no holds barred APS-C camera, I'd have trouble paying the extra $800-900 for the following upgrades:

Where do you get the extra $800-900 from?  Even if those specifications are accurate?

10fps vs 7fps

61 point pro AF module versus "enthusiast" 51 point AF

Better build quality

Really that is it isn't it? The D7100 specs are impressive. I know to a pro those items listed may be worth the big price difference, but to most users I think 7fps and 51 point AF is still very impressive.

As long as the D7100 doesn't have oil splatters or AF issues like the D600/D800, I think Canon will have a tough time competing with a nice price on the 7D mk II.
