ok, just not what I was looking for

  • Excerpt: The image quality is great, but once again, Nikon continues to handicap their cameras. I could only shop 6 shoot in raw and then the buffer is full. As a bird photographer, that is unacceptable. I do not have 6400.00 yo spend on a D4s, so I sent the camera back to b&h and I am switching to the Canon 7 mark II. With 10 FPS and a 31 frame raw buffer, that will fill my needs.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality

A step way backward

  • Excerpt: This is a poor replacement for my old D70 as a second, lighter DSLR. I always use only raw files so I see a direct comparison to my much heavier D700 and my now dead D70. There is just no comparison in image quality. The D7100 raw images are much much "grainier", particularly in the shadows, and the dynamic range is lower. This was a waste of money. I now lug the heavier, but superb, D700 everywhere and leave the 7100 at home.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Light weight
  • Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light

High Speed RAW Shooters; AVOID THIS CAMERA

13 April 2014
  • Summary: This camera has some excellent features, the scene modes are excellent, and it has good controls for manual. Unlike my Canon 7D, it doesn't try to take every picture at 1/100 F4 even when it's bright sunshine and not a cloud in the sky. However, I am a high speed raw shooter, I do moving objects like people and trains. This thing is PATHETIC when it comes to that. It can only shoot 6, count them 6, RAW images on full frame high speed. My Canon 7D can shoot about 18.

Great until the oil spots

  • Excerpt: I had the camera a little over a year (April 2013) with just under 3K shutter clicks. Started seeing the spots in January 2014 (upper left corner), did the in-camera self cleaning a few times, then they went away. Started using the camera heavily in March, and on the 31st I took pics and the spots are so prominent and heavy, that most of the shots are unusable.

Nikon AF (front-focus) Issue

29 December 2013
  • Summary: Note: This is not a full review - this review only addresses the auto-focus issue. I own 5 Nikon bodies: D5000, D7000, D700, D600, and now the D7100. With the exception of the D7000 (I have not 'tested' my D600 yet), EACH camera has had an AF issue; that issue being a front-focus problem. The D5000 has no internal AF fine-tune, so I sent that in for calibration. The D700 I have set on +16, and now the D7100 set on +12.

Disappointed

  • Summary: Bought this camera as a step up from point and shoot. So far I`m disappointed. In auto mode I can`t get any consistent sharp photos. I would shoot day and night to learn more about the camera. Ask a buddy to bring out his Canon 70D for a shoot and his consistently comes out ahead. He had a 18-105mm lens with the same f-stop. I`m pretty sure I need to learn more about the camera but It should perform at least decent with a simple point and shoot.

Defective right out of the box

Wine Obsessive, Amazon
14 December 2013
  • Summary: I had been looking at purchasing a D7100 for a while now. When I saw that they were now including the 18-140mm lens, I was ready to buy. I was really happy when I saw that Amazon had it in their stock. I always prefer to buy from Amazon because I feel protected if something should go wrong, Unfortunately, something went wrong. The camera arrived on time. The shipping box was in great shape. I opened the box and started following the quick-start guide...
