This is definitely an all in one camera.
It gives the D600 a slap in the face.

Wow, I'm in love
After shooting with my D60 for years it was time to move up, I waited for the D7100 it came last week, yes there are buttons for the buttons, buttons but little by little I'm getting it. I love all the new features that i have been waiting for. My D60 will always be my backup.
Way to go Nikon.

Replaced my D7000
I was excited but worried that the upgrade wouldn't be very noticeable from the D7000. My worries were set to ease as this camera is AWESOME! It handles well in my hand and takes great pictures!

Very Nice Camera
I have been In to photography for 25 years used all if not most of the equipment out .this camera fells very nice to me and I am a big guy with big hands .the camera was able to focus very well in the photo of the bird I am not happy to find out they do not have a LCD protector out for this camera. All in all this camera is well built and takes good photos.

Yes this one is the one
Being a new customer to Nikon Digital, I have owned the F5 film camera in the past. I am very impressed with the camera, it is very intuitive. I feel it has the perfect weight. Also coming from the Sony A77, A65 and A700, I have to say that this camera is definitely a different camera. It has a polite way about the way it operates. The photos are more realistic to me and I don't have to do much correction if any to the pictures like I used to with the other cameras I have had in the past. I have been in photography for 25 years plus and this is the first time I have been this excited about a camera in a long time.

Worth the Wait
Smaller than a D800, Faster than a D300s (@14bit NEF), Cheaper than a D600 (by $500), Better than any Canon (under €2K) for anyone not into fast sports (D3X) or rapidly changing photojournalism / wildlife photography (D4)
DX images have never looked so good!

The best you can find
It was my first time getting a camera. I pretty much learned how to use it just by looking through the user's manual. The only thing you might want to think about it that it is not very light. I got a 18-300mm lens and together it weighted around 1kg. If you are someone who wants to travel around a lot without a heavy item in your hands then choose one of the D5000 series. However if you don't mind the weight, this camera will satisfy all your needs. It include everything you need from a starter till a professional photographer.

What more do you need?!
I would like to thank all the crazy and creative scientist this frankenstein of a camera.

Bought the D7100 about 2 months ago, I upgraded it from the D7000.
From day one I had back focusing issues with my old D7000 and while in time Nikon service and Fine Tuning helped a lot it never fully resolved my problems.
So when I gave up on the D7000 I upgraded to the D7100 and MAN what a HUGE change.
All my pictures are sharp, sharp, sharp!!!
Low light performance is about same as the D7000 which means for a crop sensor camera its great.
Up to 3200 ISO I am using it with no problems.
I read some people complaining the buffer is too small for burst mode.
Well For me I don't need more then that and if you really want more then simply put it on 1.3 crop mode and JPEG Fine and you get up to 22 frames till the buffer (I tested it myself).
Dynamic range on this camera is amazing, simply amazing.
To sum it up I think for its price this camera is a marvel, will do all you need and leave you happy with gorgeous pictures.

I purchased the D7100 as an upgrade of my D90.
I simply love this camera. Price/quality ratio is excellent.
Words to describe it would be versatility, rapidity, brightness.
Vesatiliy because it can adapt to various condition, with high range if ISO.
Rapidity as the response is quick, and you can shoot up to 6 fps.
Brightness because I really enjoy to capture bright light. The results are excellent.
Photography is my hobby, and I really have fun with this new camera. I encourage you to try it!

The Nikon D7100 is my first DSLR camera. My initial plan was to go with the Nikon D3200 - but everyone I spoke with (shooting with one) tried to sell me their setups, eager to upgrade to the 7100. I wanted a camera that I could grow into-- and I am confident I picked the right one! There is definitely a learning curve coming from a point-and-shoot, some of the controls are unintuitive/ very hidden. That being said- I never sat down with my manual, I just jumped right in and started playing around.
Overall, I am so glad I chose this camera as my entry into the photography world. It has been a pleasure learning on. I am happy with the pictures I am taking- they just keep getting better and better. I love this camera and I know I am going to continue to love it for years to come. Still much to learn, but I feel like I am off to a great start, and excited to see what else I can do with it! I would definitely recommend the Nikon D7100 to others just starting off with photography (currently trying to talk my dad into buying one).

This is my second D7100, the first I returned because of too frequent sensor cleaning. This second camera is performing beyond my expectations. I ordered it with the kit lens 18-105MM as well as 70-300 MM and 35MM 1.8 lens. I just finished covering a local airshow with the 70-300MM lens, shooting RAW in 1.3 crop mode with excellent quality pictures. I would highly recommend this camera. It is not a professional model but certainly lives up to being the flagship for the enthusiasts camera.

I especially love the virtual horizon. I did not think I would use that feature much, but I use it a lot. It is certainly a feature rich camera. I am sure by the time I have remembered half of what is in the user guide (very meaty) the camera may be obsolete. Happily, features I have used in the past, like AE lock are easier to use. While I prefer to take stills (I have a semi pro video camera), I did try the video on this baby, and I must say, the video and audio quality are both great.
My only annoyance is that Adobe CS5 does not have a raw converter that works with the NEF files this camera shoots. I really wish Nikon could work closer with companies like Adobe so that the infernal software producers wouldn't have leverage to force users to purchase new software everytime we want to update our cameras.

Great camera for anyone beginner to professional!
I started out with a D3200 as my first camera not too long ago. I felt like I reached the end of what I was able to do with that camera and decided to upgrade. The D7100 was able to fulfill all the requirements that I needed from prosumer camera and not break the bank. I would definitely recommend this camera 10/10!

I think this is one of the best cameras I have ever owned. I switched from canon a few years back to the Nikon D7000 and could not have been happier. Then when the D7100 came out i just had to upgrade and I was not disappointed. I loved all the extra features especially the HDR and effects settings. I mainly use DSLR's for video and the options are a great step up from the D7000 which you could only really shoot 24 frames per second at 1080p, and I love the interval timer setting which I have been having a lot of fun with. When I got the camera a week ago I have not been able to put it down. The only camera I think i Enjoy more then this is the Nikon D800 and one day I will own that one too.

Una verdadera belleza en calidad - precio!!
He pasado por varios modelos de Sony y ninguno se compara con la calidad y prestaciones que te ofrece la D7100 recomendado para avanzados e incluso para fotógrafos profesionales, dada las características y diversidad de lentes que ofrece Nikon.

Foco incrível e qualidade soberba de imagem
Venho de outra marca com a qual fotografava profissionalmente. Optei pela D7100 e seu sensor APS-C de 24 mp, que me permitiria maior aproveitamento da distância focal em lentes FX menores, já que trabalho com fotografia de natureza, podendo utilizar lentes como a 80-400 mm com distância de foco equivalente a 600mm em uma DX. A primeira surpresa se deu em relação à qualidade da imagem e das cores: fiquei muito impressionado com a qualidade final de imagem oferecida pela câmera. A segunda grande surpresa foi o soberbo sistema de autofoco, permitindo incríveis fotografias de animais em movimento com uma nitidez e uma rapidez que eu não tinha experimentado antes. Além disso, achei que teria muita dificuldade em me adaptar à nova câmera, mas tudo é muito intuitivo e fácil de se usar para quem está acostumado com os princípios básicos da fotografia em câmeras SLR. Estou plenamente satisfeito com essa câmera e acho que não saio mais da marca Nikon.

A Nikon D7100 é um sonho! Produz imagens perfeitas, com qualidade altíssima! O corpo, com anatomia robusta, permite perfeito encaixe na mão e segurança no manuseio. O motor de foco que a D7100 tem deixa os amantes de muitas lentes ainda mais felizes! Os recursos são tantos que ainda não consegui utilizar tudo o que a câmera oferece. É um produto para amadores estudiosos da fotografia - como eu - e para os que fazem uso profissional, sem dúvida! Acho que ficarei com ela por muito tempo! Até agora, é a minha preferida!

Yo comenze con una D3100 y acabo de dar el salto a la D7100, una excelente camara para continuar el aprendizaje y porque ser un poco mas profesional, recomendada ampliamente!!!!!!!!

Acima da média.
Na condição de fotógrafo sempre busco equipamentos que antendam a minha necessidade, encontrei na D7100 uma câmera robusta, rápida e completa para fotografias de natureza, uma das área que atuo. Realmente essa câmera no segmento APS tem o que existe de melhor em termos de resolução e recursos. Recomendo a todos que procuram uma câmera completa e versátil.

Trabalho com fotografia já há alguns anos e procuro sempre utilizar vários equipamentos, de marcas diferentes e, principalmente, com características bem distintas. Quando usei pela primeira vez a Nikon D7100 foi amor à primeira vista. Magnífica qualidade de imagem e grande quantidade de recursos. Rapidez e robustez com uma ampla gama de acessórios completam o pacote. Iniciei há 2 semanas com o Kit básico (corpo D7100 + lente 18-105mm) e depois comprei mais uma bateria, o flash SB910 e uma lente 18-300mm. Acho que meus dias de peregrinação e conhecimento de equipamentos terminaram e vou fincar raízes com essa máquina. Verdadeira máquina de sonhos!

Only back focus issue
I waited over ten months to write this review to make sure I am not rushing into this and I have done my due diligence.
I have noticed two issues with this camera or at least the one I have, 1) Low ISO performance 2) Back focus issue.
In regards to ISO, I didn't expect much from a DX camera. As far as the second issue (back focus) goes, as a long time Nikon user (since 1981), I am extremely disappointed that Nikon doesn't have more effective quality control process in place in its factories where the DSLR cameras are produced. The high end models don’t seem to be suffering from quality issues as much as they are manufactured in Japan.
My past several years’ unfortunate experiences began with the D7000 model which had severe back focus issue. Then when I bought the D600, I had the sensor dirt spot issue, afterwards with the D800 which was also suffering from the sensor dirt spot issue, similar to D600 (within the first two weeks I was looking at tens of black spots on all images I was taking), and finally, I had the back focus issue with the D7100. I couldn’t believe that the last four Nikon DSLRs I had bought had issues. All seemed to be things that you would think a real quality control process will be able to eliminate.
Had I had not the back focus issue with D7100, I would've given it five stars.
In case you are wondering, I ended up taking my D7100 to Nikon service center in Los Angeles and had the focus issue resolved. They had to make some adjustments. I wonder, if Nikon checks the focus system accuracy before releasing their cameras to market. After all, isn’t the whole purpose of a camera to take pictures and preferably focused?
By the way, Nikon service center’s service was great. I received a call exactly one week from the date I dropped my camera off at Nikon. (Yes, I am one of the lucky ones who lives in Los Angeles and can drop off the camera vs. shipping it in).

Best DX you can find
This camera is best described as a FX with a DX sensor. This is my backup camera but when I am out taking pictures of wildlife I tend to set down my full frame and pick this up instead for the extras. In nature I usually use my 80-400 fx lens on the d7100 it is 1.5 x the mm giving me an extra 200mm and if that is not enough I can use crop mode dropping to 15Mp but increasing my reach an additional X 1.3. Over all this is an awesome buy not only for the money for what you get. The built in focus motor allows me to interchange any of my lenses and this camera produces professional photos that are sharp. Best of all I have had no troubles in extreme cold temperatures. The only con I have found is in the focusing system I have focused on eyes and had the nose chest or chin instead I have been using the center focus point and recomposing to fix this but will try to calibrate or fine tune when I have time maybe that will clear it up if that does not work it may as well only have one focus point.
