A fine camera indeed
I have owned this body for several months now and have shot several thousand photographs. I shoot macro, landscapes, and birds predominately. I have never had the camera fail to write to the Sandisk Extreme Pro 32gb card, nor have I experienced garbled images. Just returned from a workshop at Rancho Laguna Seca photographing birds. After deleting the obvious clunkers I had about 1,500 images. Because of poor light they were shot at ISOs of 400 to 1200 and with wide apertures to get the necessary shutter speed. I used the Nikon 500 f4 and the Nikon 70-200 f2.8 with a 1.4 tele extender as well as the Nikon SB 900 Flash set for high speed. I experienced no overheating. The focusing accuracy was so good and the images so sharp you can count the barbels on the birds feathers.
My only minor complaint is that I wish the buffer was larger especially when shooting birds in flight.

An excellent camera that delivers
I already owned a D7000 and have really gotten some great pictures with it. I bought a Nikkor 70-300mm VR and started taking wildlife pictures. I was loving life…. Then I decided it was time to move up and get a zoom lens with a longer reach and couple it with a teleconverter since the top of the line zooms are out of my price range. After doing some research, the auto focus on some of these lenses will not work unless the camera supports auto focus at F8.
The D7100 does support auto focus at F8, so I made the decision to forego the new zoom for now and get a camera that will work with the lens I am looking at. I ordered it, received it on Friday and had the opportunity to go to a wildlife refuge over the weekend. The weather was not the best although it did cooperate long enough to get some shoots in.
When I got home and downloaded the pictures I was amazed. I am not sure if it is the new focusing system with the 15 cross-type sensors, the removal of the OLPF filter or the extra megapixels in the sensor but it gives you the ability to zoom in and crop a photo that still has high definition and sharpness like nothing I have dealt with before.
I have attached and original photo and a severely cropped version for an example. I got the original and the cropped version printed out in 12x18 and the cropped version shows no signs of pixeling. I can’t wait to get back out and get some more photos and in a few months when I can afford the larger zoom and teleconverter I am positive I will absolutely love what I get with this camera.

This DSLR has blown me away with its amazing capabilities and crisp frames. I took the plunge and switched from a different camera brand all together and it was completely worth it. Magnificent auto focus and battery life is great!
