Excerpt: It's a good walkaround lens. Don't confuse this with a prime lens for a pro gig (imo). Well I suppose you could, but I'm no pro. It is a kit lens, and it does to the job. But the bokeh isn't that spectacular like a 50mm 1.4 would have. I do love this lens because if you're doing a walkaround and need a good quality, semi-durable (don't drop it my first one shattered), medium focusing lens, this one is for you.
Excerpt: I recently bought the D7100 to film a high quality video for school and for general photography. I've been a photagopher for years and love the D7100 for its 24.1 megapixels, its face recognition, and its noise redutcion calabilities. The video this camera can take is fantastic quality and the ability to record in 1080i 60fps is very useful. The only issue is that in oreder to record in 1080i 50 or 60fps, one must turn on 1.3x crop, taking away from the image quality.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I really enjoy this camera, it is much faster than my D90. It handles low light better, and focuses much faster. I still haven't learned all the features, the learning curve is steep, if you want this as a point and shoot then it is the wrong camera for you.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I finally pulled the trigger and upgraded from my D80. I would say I made a good choice! Love the fact that the design and operational features are very similar to the D80, not too much of a learning curve on finding everything. The camera performs great and the pictures are awesome.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
