I'm really impressed with the sharpness, couldn't be any better. I usually shoot short bursts say up to around 5 frames. Do you think the d7100 is a reasonable camera for doing this with birds in flight?

Have fun with the d7100.


Thanks Larry!  Yes, if you get the 95mb/second memory card.  I had no problem doing 9-10 fast shots with the buffer emptying quickly using that card.  Using the 45mb/second card I could only get 5 shots and the buffer didn't empty as fast.  And that's shooting 12-bit lossless compressed RAW + jpg basic, in both the DX and 1.3 crop modes.  The card makes the biggest difference, although for anyone who shoots jpg only, there's no problem with the slower card.

Hope that helps!
