Re: P, S, A or M? (Or even...)

I use a D5200, so this might be slightly different.

I shoot in A.  I also use Auto ISO with Auto Shutter Speed based on the lens attached and the zoom used.  I have a Min and a Max ISO specified (for me I use 100 and 6400).  So the camera automatically adjusts the ISO to keep my 300mm at 1/500th of a second depending on the aperture I use, but keep the 35mm at 1/50.  If it can't get the speed that high because it would have to select an ISO over 6400, the speed drops.  Pretty much how I'd do it if I went full manual anyways.

I believe the D7100 has similar options.

Good luck!
