Re: D7100 or K-5IIs

I recently went to a store and handled the D7100 with an 18-135 zoom lens, a Canon with 18-135, and also a Sony A65 with an 18-135 so I could compare.   When I was at 135 focusing on something across the store, all three cameras felt about the same, noticeably shaky.     At home I have an Sony A65 with 18-135 as well and a Pentax K5ii with an 18-135.   The Pentax is much more stable in my hands than Sony A65 so I am sure the Nikon and Canon would be worse than the Pentax for me in that regard as well.

I know everyone writes go hold the cameras, but I just want to specifically add, snap some pictures at long focal lengths and pay attention to how steady they are in your hands.
