What many aren't honest enough to themselves to admit....

The simple truth is that unless you have a regular use for the resolution and powerful focus point system, the D7000 and D5100 effectively offer equivalent image quality to the new cameras for a bargain basement price.

It would seem that the prior generation is still very much in the game, and this is nothing but good for enthusiast photographers.

If you base decision making primarily on image quality, then it's hard to justify the extra cost of the new camera bodies compared to the extra glass you could buy along with an older body.

+1

...is that after all the pixel peeping and academic comparisons of IQ, in the actual image sizes that the owners publish and print their personal pictures for consumption, the incremental IQ offered by the D7100 is virtually non-existent and unecessary.
