Greetings! Though I as yet have "only" a D5200, based on my research into the D7100, I tend to agree with David that the D7100 is an excellent body that would be best served with fast glass, especially in your possibly low-light ballroom settings. I expect with the right exposure and technique, you'll achieve some excellent images! That said, FF would probably be even better, though obviously more costly. Good luck! Steve
