I have a D300 and my two primary lenses are the 17-35mm f:2.8 and 80-200mm f:2.8. I also own several others all Nikon lenses.

To answer your question I was not waiting on the D400 which I see as nothing more than vaporware until it hits the stores. So I wanted a new camera to become my second Nikon body since I recently sold my D200. I opted for the D7100 and I am really glad I did. The image quality alone makes this camera worthy of obtaining into ones' camera kit.

In my household there is also a SONY camera system. An A100, A700 and the new A65. This kit has one Zeiss lens and a bag full of older Minolta AF fullframe lenses. From time to time I'll pickup one of the SONY's, with the A65 being 24mp it is also very sharp in detail. I don't like the digital viewfinder it has but the Live View is accurate. Of the three SONY bodies I am more likely to use the A700 if I feel like using one.

My Nikon kit is superior to the SONY IMHO The D7100 has the resolution, 100% viewfinder, a good enough buffer for what I do and very importantly superior optics. Unless you are prone towards purchasing all Zeiss/SONY optics.

This is based upon my own personal opinion and experience with the cameras listed above.
