Re: hands-on review of the D7100

I would agree that the D7000 is better for massive shadow lifting, but would take the tradeoff for much higher res and better mids for sure, not to mention all the other upgrades.  Not too many times I would ever go more than 2 stops or even that far pullling shadows.

And if you believe the astrophotographers amongst us, the d7000 was also cleaner because it did some truncation at near total black to mask what residual pattern noise there was - and would have to be, even with exmor's digital cds. Canon's sensors allow exposure stacking to image dimstars, which is possible only if you don't play such games...it'll be interesting to see if Nikon has now gone this route, taking the penalty of pattern noise. Buy Topaz stock, there may be a lot more sales of DeNoise to D7100 buyers shortly.
