"D7100 Where are all the reviews???"

The camera has been available for a week or more. Has anyone seen any hands-on reviews?

Here's one... I assume it's of a full-production model. Some have only held the pre-production models...

I'll be writing an extensive review in early April. Right now I am testing the camera well, to find out its good and weak points. Not many weak points so far, this baby is fast and extremely sharp. The autofocus system is amazing to me.

I just started writing Mastering the Nikon D7100 too. This is gonna be fun!

THANKS for your efforts!

One thing I've seen on some posts around the net, is the approach of underexposing a dark scene by several stops, heavily boosting it in post-processing, then looking for banding!

Does this make sense to you as a valid test of anything? It almost seems like an attempt at creating problems as opposed to attempting an accurate and informative review.

The reason it is valid is this. If you are shooting a landscape for example, chances are the sky is 3 stops brighter than the ground and thus the camera will blow out the sky if you expose for the ground or the ground will go dark if you expose for the sky. Some people bracket and shoot HDR to overcome this. But, if you can expose for the sky, and boost the shadows in post, you will have a perfect image of the landscape in a single image without shooting HDR. All you are doing is bringing back the shadows that were stored in the RAW file but that you can't see in the image. Of course if you see banding in the image a ton of grain, your not going to want to do this. Thus, it is nice to see how a camera performs. This is a sign of they dynamic range and this is basically the method DxO uses for their sensor testing

Isn't this the reason serious landscape shooters invest in high quality ND grad filters?

Excellent review. I got my fat little hands on the D7100 with the new Sigma 35mm lens and it is breath taking the way this camera performs.
