The D7000 seemed like a reasonable compromise for a second body--plus the learning curves for the 7100 and 7000 should be very similar.

If you are new to the 7100, spend plenty of time investigating the settings and practicing your shots. AF in particular requires quite a bit of work; AF on the 7100 is great, but needs care. I'd suggest a 3200 as a second camera.

One tip; try setting the Fn button on the 7100 to spot metering, unless you have a better use for it.
