    Nikon | Imaging Products | Nikon D7100

    • New 24.1-megapixel DX-format CMOS sensor and EXPEED 3 image processing engine to deliver the ultimate in image quality
    • 51-point AF system, and Nikon’s 3D Color Matrix Metering II 2,016 pixel RGB sensor and Scene Recognition System
    • Wide ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to Hi-2 of 25,600) for low-light shooting
    • Ability to shoot in a 1.3x DX crop mode for both stills and HD video allows for shooting at up to seven fps at slightly reduced resolution, and enhancing AF system frame coverage
    • Fast performance: Shoot at up to 6 fps at full resolution, 7 fps with 1.3x mode.
    • 3.2-inch High Resolution 122k dot LCD, Enhanced Interface
    • 100% frame coverage through the optical viewfinder with new OLED display
    • New Spot White Balance feature allows for quick and precise white balance adjustment while shooting in live view
    • HD video can be recorded at 1080/30p, or at 60i/50i (in 1.3x Crop Mode)
    • Compatible with the optional WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter, enabling the user to share images to a supported smartphone or tablet, shoot remotely from their device, and transfer photos from up to 49 feet away.

    Guess this means no D400. Unless the AF speed and high noise performance is dramatically better than the D7000 I see no point upgrading for now.

    Nice update, they kept the same price level as the original d7000, and my d70 before that. Doesn't warrant an upgrade for me just yet.

    Not much here at all. D7000 prices should tumble - hopefully a cashback offer too, could do with getting a descent second body.

    I was thinking about getting a D90 as a second body. I might now wait for the D7100 to come out and wait to see now much the D7000 drops too.

    According to DPR there's no low-pass filter as standard although the reviews I read on the D800E don't seem to think the lack of filter causes problems.

    When I saw OLED for the viewfinder I thought this meant a fancy hybrid system like Fuji use but seems it's just for shooting data.

    The D7000 is already really cheap on Dig Rev... people are still saying there will be a Pro Dx body in June, maybe that is the D9000?

    Im a D5000 owner and am more than ready to upgrade but i just dont know *** to do! Do i stick with crop and get either this or wait til June or do i just sell everything and go FX. I want to be able to take high iso night/astro shots which i find the D5000 really struggles with. Also i do really long exposures and the noise can be really bad sometimes. The D600 looks awesome image quality wise even at high iso. I have an IR converted D70 so would have to keep my 18-200 for that which would be around £300 not going towards upgrading.

    D800e has an AA filter , just with a new corrected layer.

    D7100 is the d5100 sensor without the aa filter.

    its good for random/nature kind of stuff, crap for repetitive pattern/man made stuff.

    Effectively it has no AA filter, the implementation is just a bit different but importantly it doesn't suffer for it regardless of the subject (including man-made and repetitive patterns) despite conventional thinking no AA filter wouldn't be viable. I assume this is why they're offering the D7100 without an AA filter as standard with no optional alternative that has an AA filter.

    The D7100 uses the D5200 sensor, not the D5100 (which uses the same sensor as the D7000)

    D800e does show moire at times. Though many high pixel count sensors are now showing it even with as filters.
