I am considering the D7100 as a replacement for my D200 and following other discussion threads on here about the frame rate and buffer size on the new D7100. The specs(EXSPEED 3 processor, larger file size, etc.) on the new D7100 are different but the buffer is similar enough, I hope, for a reasonable comparison to the D7000.

I'd appreciate hearing from any D7000 users who shoot flying birds. Specifically, has the smaller buffer been a problem? Have you felt as though you missed some good shots because of this limitation? I know so much of this depends on anticipating and capturing exact moments (like a diving osprey) and the skills of the photographer. (The same question could apply to anyone else who shoots action, like sports.)

The D7100 has many great features that make it an appealing upgrade for me, but not if the buffer is a source of frustration. I will be following the reviews and reactions of people who are "early adopters" of the D7100 next month to see what their experiences may be. In the mean time, thanks for any comments.
