Excerpt: Purchased the D7100 as an upgrade from my D90. I've had it about a month and am very disappointed with the image quality. I have been in contact with Nikon Support in hopes they can figure out what is wrong. Close up the images appear OK but anything over 10 feet away the sharpness is terrible. At this point I'm using my D90 back as primary.
Excerpt: The D7100 is a well thought out camera, with controls easily accessible on the camera body and a pleasure to use. However Nikon's quality control issues, noted elsewhere on the internet, have caused problems since I bought the camera. Photos have been fuzzy with no discernible focus point, using a variety of lenses under many different conditions. Nikon repaired it under warranty. Photos were sharp for only two weeks.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Summary: The D7100 is a huge step up from my old D60. Controls are easy to use, and I continue to learn new features of this camera. However, Nikon's quality control issues, easily found on several internet sites, have dampened my enthusiasm for this camera. The autofocus has never worked well, resulting in fuzzy photos without a focal point. Nikon repaired the camera under warranty; repairs lasted just two weeks.
Gray Market Camera cannot register body for repairs with Nikon
10 June 2014
Summary: nikon warranty good for one year, so if you've gotten this camera and it's good...then okay.... I am talking to amazon after this.... Gray Market means it wasn't important fro US but other country. It's a beautiful set up.....lenses come up okay at Nikon and are registerable...NOT the body....
Excerpt: I gave this camera a glowing review right after getting it and taking a couple of macro shots that turned out pretty good. Now, after several hundred subsequent shots with a variety of lenses, in different light conditions, fiddling with AF tuning, etc, I simply can not get this camera to produce a sharp image. I wish I could send it back but I waited too long. Two genereous stars for layout and build quality, but that's it.
Summary: Nikon sets the pricing (so you are not getting a special deal by purchasing it online). If you have a problem with the camera (as I do), you will need to go to your local Nikon rep & pay to have them ship it out to be fixed & then be without the camera for 6-8 weeks. The camera I purchased has a defect with the screen (manufacturer issue).
Summary: the photos tends to be a little blue and the auto white balance is not accurate. the white balance is so bad that even not as good as D3200. it does not worth this price, and I can buy a full-frame SLR camera by this price.
Excerpt: I gave this camera over a month before writing this review. All in all, I have been a bit disappointed in the performance of this camera, particularly its ability to crisply and quickly focus on moving subjects. I spend a good deal of time photographing wildlife and I find the D7100 to be inferior to my five-year old D300 in this regard. The D7100's performance when photographing still subjects is good and it is far superior in low light situations than the D300.
Pros: High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor Continuous Auto Focu
