Check It Out Before Ordering Online

  • Summary: It takes great photos. I really like the software and wifi features. The small body size, buttons and controls are tough for larger hands and fingers. If you're considering this camera w/ the 18-140mm lens package, go to your local retailer and check it out. It might not fit your grip and unique finger dexterity. Check out the equivalent other brands for size and button locations. It might sway you towards the Canon lineup.

Enthusiast?? don't think so..

  • Summary: Before you buy this camera.. I had the Nikon D5200, much like this, and I have some advice. I based my 1st DSLR camera purchase on a mix of price versus features, features meaning image quality. I actually read in a magazine that the D5200 was the BEST VALUE BEGINNERS DLSR, and I bought it on new ebay. If you really are an enthusiast I would encourage you not to get this camera. I had mine for 6 months and got rid of it out of frustration.

  • Excerpt: Bought this as a back up/equivalent sensor to my D7100. It is a good and capable camera as is, of course the D7100. I chucked in my D700 and 24-70 2.8 lens for lighter gear which I might use outside of paid work (the D700 24-70 never got used for leisure) but frankly, I'm disappointed with all of the new gear. I got three Sigma lenses, the 17-50 f2.8, 10-20 f4-5.6 and the 50-150 f2.8. I've also got the Nikon 35 f1.8 and Tamron 90mm macro.

The numbers and features ON PAPER look great on this camera

O. carrig, Amazon

  • Summary: The numbers and features ON PAPER look great on this camera. However, coming from a D200/D300/D800 I just couldn't handle the mushy shutter feel, ergonomics (button layout), and lack of programmable buttons. I was also depending on a more usable liveview than a point and shoot. Keep in mind that the D800's isn't very usable (super slow and noisy). I couldn't be happier with the D7100 UNLESS it had an articulating touchscreen. Common Nikon keep up with the times already!

  • Excerpt: The major negative first: Seriously Nikon, I am disappointed that you would allow such a flimsy camera body through your quality control. The battery cover clip broke when I was trying to remove it to insert a battery grip. When I looked it was made from cheap plastic. The rest of the body is made from the same cheap plastic and some of the seams don't line up 100% leaving a tiny gap for dust or moisture to get inside.

  • Summary: Nikon lenses...excellent. remote flash button, extra battery, thumb drive, very good. all other optics in this kit may as well be thrown away, they are blurry, warped junk. really don't know if it was worththe price with all the useless pieces included. love the camera though.

Great camera

  • Summary: This product is a great higher end entry level camera. The sensor and processor are great. If you are stepping up from a PAS this a great transition into "big boy" cameras.
  • Pros: Easy to use, simple "quick shooting" setting as well as very in depth settings. Good low light. Both Kit lens options are descent.
