Re: Nikon D7100 crop factor

Don't forget the Pentax line-up.  The current K5II and K5IIs (without AA filter) both have the same sensor as the D7000, and the forthcoming K3 is expected to have the same 24mb sensor as the D7100.

Between the D7100 and the K5IIs there are a number of significant differences such as WR, in body  stabilisation, size of body, different handling characteristics etc, so a careful look at both Nikon & Pentax would be a good thing to do in your circumstances.

Don't forget the K30 either - best DSLR value by a mile, with the same sensor as the K5, WR and focus peaking, all for around £460 new. Then invest in the lenses and steadily build a system that works for you. Have no doubt that the current line up of cameras with the latest technology, ultra low noise, and low light capabilities will open your eyes and offer many more shooting possibilities than you have been used to.  As another poster said, it is not just all about the lenses - it is the other part of the equation - the body, and the sensor technology, that contributes so much. On that point, Oly have been left way behind I am sad to say.
