With respect to the dirty sensor issue, it appears that Nikon has learned a lesson from the D7000/D600 fiascos and will be changing the way they build the D7100. They will be breaking in the components that are releasing the contaminants BEFORE installing them into the body.


"Additionally, Nikon takes further, multidimensional measures; it operates certain body parts prior to assembly to prevent dust dispersion after mounting,"

dont count on it Jared, this is from the D600 description:

Nikon's Integrated Dust Reduction System with Image Sensor Cleaning function

Nikon's comprehensive dust reduction measures are realized by repeating thorough tests to respond to the demands of photographers. The D600 employs an Image Sensor Cleaning function that vibrates the optical low-pass filter at four different resonant frequencies to reduce dust. This function can be set to operate automatically when the camera is turned on or off, or to manual using menu. Moreover, Nikon takes extra measures to prevent dust spoiling images, such as operating certain parts prior to body assembly so as not to disperse dust after mounting within the camera, and reducing or deleting any spots with optional software.
