Excerpt: An attractive camera, aimed at the enthusiast, the Nikon D7100 follows on from the well-regarded D7000 which, I noted in my DPS review at the time, was described as a ‘professional-standard’ camera, not a professional one!
Summary: The D7100 is a well-built enthusiast DSLR that offers impressive image quality and easy access to shooting parameters along with a high degree of customization options. Video output is a bit disappointing and a very small image buffer limits sports shooters to JPEG-only mode.
Pros: Outstanding low ISO performance in both JPEG and Raw files, Very good default JPEG settings, Excellent build quality and very good ergonomics and handling, Effective auto white balance in a variety of lighting conditions, Comprehensive camera customization options, Auto ISO selection can be linke...
Cons: Small image buffer severely limits burst capacity in Raw-enabled modes, Slow AF in live view and video modes (compared to mirrorless APS-C cameras), No real-time aperture adjustment preview in live view, Noticeably soft video output, In video mode, the 1.3x crop setting produces upsampled output,...
Summary: The title function is, of course the D7100's 24MP indicator, which locations it plus the biggest quality APS-C cameras available on the industry. Indeed, if you were to implement that same pixel solidity to a complete structure indicator, you would get approximately a 58MP processor.
Summary: The Nikon D7100 is Nikon's replacement for the ageing D7000 and, in the absence of a replacement for the D300s, becomes Nikon's flagship DX camera. Officially it sits between the D7000, which remains in Nikon's line-up, and the full-frame D600.
Pros: Excellent quaity and high ISO noise performance., 51-point AF system which works at f8., Dust and moisture sealed body., 1.3x crop mode., Built-in stereo mics and headphone socket.
Cons: Lack of OLPF makes little difference to image quality., Poor continuous RAW shooting., Poor Full-time-servo AF in Live view., Need accessories for Wi-Fi and GPS.

28 June 2013
Summary: Nikon’s D7100 is a considerable upgrade to our favourite semi-pro camera of the last few years. A much more detailed and more capable image sensor is the big improvement, while the controls and body get a minor do-over. Video is still lacking, though.
Pros: Excellent resolution and high ISO performance, Great autofocus, white balance, burst mode, Excellent controls and LCD screen
Cons: Video output is still mediocre, Burst RAW slows camera down
Pros: High-pixel count, No low-pass filter, Weather-sealed, Dual SD card slots, Those who like to dabble in sports photography will also not be disappointed, provided you are happy to time your shots carefully and don't press the shutter release too early. The autofocus system is extremely capable and ...
Cons: No Wi-Fi built-in, Screen not touch-sensitive, Fixed screen, JPEG only HDR mode, We usually recommend that you keep an eye on the histogram view when shooting to ensure images are correctly exposed, and this is sound advice with the Nikon D7100, since the Matrix metering system is prone to undere...
