I would say nay to that.  The D800e cropped a bit smokes the D7100 for clean and sharp, with a lot less noise and way fewer artifacts to deal with, especially as you get up over ISO 400 or so.  The D7100 is only really good at very low ISO.

I would say noisewise the D800 and D7100 are on par, the D600 being slightly better.

But what are we talking about? They are all better than one generation ago. And new ones will be better still. Anyone trowing away their D200 and D90 pics now because they can't stand the noise? Not me.They are still as good as they ever were. Sure, i have less noise now, but noise is only a small part of the picture.

My advise is to take some pictures and enjoy them. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, not in extreme blowups on the computer.

Happy shooting!
