Not noticing this one whit. The D7100 is performing admirably with my lenses 16-85 3.5-5.6G/85 1.8G/80-200 2.8D/11-16 2.8. The only lens I have not taken time to micro adjust is my 50 1.5D. Probably going to ditch it anyway and get a 60 2.8G. Suppose one might argue that I have good glass, but its average at best.

Took a picture of my son coming down a slide, no issue. Took pictures of the Detroit skyline from Windsor, no issue, the dog ..... In fact people shots, kids (from a birthday party my son attended) and people in particular are turning out quite nicely. In general try to keep ISO low, aperture as appropriate depending on what effect I am trying to achieve and shutter speed as high as possible. Imagine many others try to do the same thing.

My shots are fine and better than my D90 in terms of IQ, but have not gone rummaging around looking at 100% or 200% views. I am going to take a shot from the above mentioned birthday party which I took with my 85 1.8G that I thought was nice of a mom and son and print at 20x30 just to see if there are issues. My opinion based on what I can see on my monitor is the shot will print extremely well.

Well, it is very possible that the D7100 body i used at the store needs AF fine tuning.  Did you have to tune your lenses or did you tuned them anyways?
