I am green with envy about the D7100 sensor. If it was in a D200/D300 like body, I would be all over it in an instant. But for now, I steer clear of it - after testing it for a week. I did look at your hi-ISO examples in your gallery.

Meanwhile, here is how I deal with low-light high-ISO with my old tired D200.
