Hi guys
After discussing with one of my pal who traded his D7000 for a D7100 he mentionned me that he likes his new toy, but not beeing a wildlife photographer, and practically never printing size over 13X19 inch he would not have done this move if he had read this review from techradar.com:

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/cameras-and-camcorders/cameras/digital-slrs-hybrids/nikon-d7100-1132593/review/5#articleContent

summary:
image quality : Jpeg dynamic range lower than the D7000 at iso 800, and at high iso 3200 lower than Pentax K5-II

S/N lower than D5200, D7000, D600


He assured me that he found the article to be exactly what he is experiencing after a week of ownership and over 2000 shots. This is not to say that the D7100 is an inferior camera to the D7000 but that the 24 megapixels on a DX format is done with compromised in signal noise and even dynamic range. So for a low-light photographer the D7100 appears to be a worse solution than the D7000.
