My D300 dwarfs the 7100, I looked at the different weight and dimensions before I bought it but in hand comparison is different.

D7100 felt cheap to me, kinda hollow and to light.
Not sure how rugged this body will be compared to the 300.

I will have to get used to the feel of the grip compared to the 300.
I tried some shots in very low light situations with the higher ISO and was impressed.

The AF is also impressive from what I have seen. Can't wait to get it out in the daylight.
Mode dial/Release mode dial. I didn't like it and knew that before the purchase, I will get used to it.
AF mode selection change is no big deal to me.
That is what I have noticed so far. I will add to this once I use it more. I can't wait to try it with BIF....
