I'm seriously consider getting the D7100.  Question... what prime lenses do you use?  50/1.4? 50/1.8?

If so, will that make it a 75mm equivalent?



35mm DX 1.8

AF-D 50mm 1.8

AF-S 85mm 1.8

To get to the ideal ff length of 85mm you'd need a 58mm on DX, which does not exist. Instead use a 60mm fast macro.

The crop factor on the D7100 is 1.5 while all Nikon lenses have their focal length expressed in full frame terms.
