I've been toying with the upgrade for a while now,
from a D80 to the 7000, and i was in fact ready to "pull the trigger" so to speak. lo and behold, for another $400, the 7100. has appeared on the scene.

I do mostly landscape and some snapshot type of prtraits, and spectator sports shots. in fact i'm planning on shooting the Bristol race in august. that's where the dilemma comes in. I am very unhappy with the D80 in low light. it seems to have an unaceptable amount of noise at anything above ISO 200. obviously the increased pixel gain is a good thing with the 7100, but what other improvements are there over the 7000 to make it worth the extra $400?
