"RE: noise characteristics at 800 iso for the D7100"
I suppose it depends on what you plan to do with the resulting images. Although in my experience 100-800 is fine, 1600 you start to see a bit of noise if you blow stuff up much. There are plenty of reviews of the D7000 that show pictures taken at various iso's - google them!
