d7100 seems awesome, maybe a better d800 than the d800?

As a DX camera, the d7100 flat out trounces the d800 in every category that I can think of, ATM.  If this sensor is their best DX sensor yet, then it will also be an awesome low ISO camera, likely to be every bit as good as the d800 sensor, at 1/3 the price.   woof...  That's just incredible.

I'm going to be watching the reviews and especially on the sensor, with great interest.  I may need to unload my d800 before the prices fall through the floor.

This is a good day to be a Nikon user.  Of course, there's still much speculation on a future d400. I wouldn't be surprised to see them do a d400, since the d7100 isn't quite up to the d300 standards for an action/sports camera.  But, for now at least, we've finally learned that Nikon hasn't abandoned the upper level DX market segment, unlike the predictions of the DPR pundits.

There's still much to learn about the new camera, but it would certainly appear that Nikon has hit another home run.
