Re: Nikon D800 or D7100 for aspiring photographer

Rent the D800 with a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8g and a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8g for your D7100.  This will give you about the same FOV on both cams.  Try to take the same shots with both cameras and then compare your results at the end of the day.  (Be sure and carry the D800 around all day to see how you like that)  When I was trying out these cams I thought I'd never use the "1.3 crop" feature on the D7100.  I found it so useful I programmed one of the front buttons to change back and forth during the trial.  The D7100 will be a pretty good sports camera in my opinion, if that is your thing.  Have fun, we really are all about the gear here.  Ha.
