"D7100 first thoughts..."

Body-wise, great solid camera. Without the Battery Grip, it fits nicely in my hands, and this is enhanced by the rubbery surface coating. The viewfinder is excellent and the data is super clear.

Focus on my Sigma 150mm is like lightning.

Shooting at dusk, I was still able to determine that my Sigma 150mm works perfectly... This camera has some serious resolution capability. That's what I'm partial to.

As to the buffer, shooting RAW, I think folks that need that capacity are going to be seriously disappointed. I'm counting 5 frames, and then the camera slows down...

With JPEG (highest quality/size) things get much better with a full 2 seconds of high speed shooting, before things start to slow. Figure 12 or so frames...

This is using the latest Sandisk 95MB/s cards.

Now, this is NOT a serious test, so when the reviews start appearing, nuanced perspectives will emerge as well.

Still, shooting RAW, short bursts are fine, but they'll have to be short. I didn't try the 1.3 crop mode on this.

The shutter feels exactly the same as the D7000. The locks on the mode dial are nice. The playback screen is great.

It feels like a light-weight brick. Well screwed together.

When I can post some serious images, I will.
