held a 7100 for the first time yesterday at a nearby camera store. Very close in size to my 600. I really wanted to test the 1.3 crop so I put it on a tripod - focused on a store front sign a block away and was amazed by the number of focal points within the 1.3 frame. They cover the entire scene or at least appeared to. The first thing that went through my mind was - wow - fantastic for bird shots. Exactly what I've been looking for to use as a dedicated telephoto lens body. Going back today to buy it.


Cold weather photography makes a VR lens your best friend. Think violent shivering. :-)
