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?

Nothing has changed. If you notice an increase in softness in the D7100, Its likely to be because you are viewing at higher magnifications. Therefore any softness would also be present in lower resolution cameras, just not so obvious. Its something that certainly highlights individual camera handling techniques. Elsewhere on this thread someone has mentioned a rule of thumb for minimum shutter speeds/focal length of lens. Its a guide, that's all. I don't have that steady a hand, so the rule of thumb doesn't really work for me. But, tripods, mono pods, bean bags, cars, walls,  other people, all make stable platforms to get sharp shots.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.
