I hear you, but that's an awfully big assumption to make. I agree it's a logical one, but I want to see some solid info on it, either a KB article from Nikon (preferably) or a lot of D800s owners chiming in on their experiences. And if there is some sot of protection over the D7100 sensor - what? Is it the same as the D800s? It's the "new territory" aspect that's making me itchy, y'know?
Inquiring minds (and prospective customers) want to know!
