Has anyone noticed or experienced this if you bought D7100 comming from D7000 or with a lower MP camera?  Are new D7100 owners using the shutter speeds the same way as before meaning doubleing the shutter speed as with the D7000, has anything changed?

Also not just with the D7100 but with any 24MP camera in general.  Also have any of you had the need to upgrade lenses to keep up with these newer bodies?

Even with  D7000, to get everything it is capable of requires absolutely perfect technique. Even with medium shutter speeds on a tripod, I can plainly see when I used MLU with remote release vs setting the in camera timer with no MLU. The "rule" of 1/focal length for a shutter speed setting might have worked for 35mm film but no longer applies if you are looking for max resolution. I typically use 2X focal length as the min is possible on my D700. I haven't used a D7100 but I would have to assume that with a higher pixel density this would be even more critical.
