But from what edo21 says, he is kind of correct, based on dpreviews latest D7100 reviews. The D7100 does have its limits at the higher ISO. Very good at low ISO but not so great at higher where its performance drops for detail and color. I've decided not to buy this camera.

Mistermeija, what's your definition of "higher ISO"? What the OP and most folks using this camera are talking about is pushing the upper bounds of acceptability from the 400-800 of the D90 to a bit beyond the 800-1600 of the D7000. The OP would like acceptable 1600. Most of the discussion here seem to center on the nosebleed ISOs of 3200 and beyond, where the print resolution performance of the D7100 appears to exceed that of the D7000.

My reading of the info suggests that at 100% you're not going to outperform the D7000, but at the same viewed image resolution the D7100 is potentially a bit better.
