I’m a new member here and have pre-ordered the D7100 body from B&H. My camera for the last 10 years has been the Coolpix 5700. Before the 5700 I had an EOS 10s and an AE1 Program. The 5700 still takes great pictures but after a vacation last year in which I visited Arches National Park and the Grand Canyon, I wanted something better. The D7100 should be a quantum leap from the 5700 and I look forward to posting some pictures here as soon as I receive it.
For my first lens I’ve decided on the 18-200mm VRII zoom which I will purchase next week (unless someone can convince me that this is a mistake) so that the lens will arrive just before the body.
