I just bought a D7100, upgrading from the D5100, on which I basically learned about photography. One thing that I liked about the D5100 was that the monitor/control panel was on a little screen that flipped open and shut AND it also displayed the camera's current settings quite clearly, when I ppressed the shutter button half-way down. On the D7100, I can see that sort of display, but only when I push the "I" button. Is there any way to see this sort of display other than by pushing the "i" button? I get it that the control panel up top seems to be taking the place of the D5100's version of the panel, but still it would be nice to have this feature available more easily. Since the Nikon manual is not completely user friendly (i.e., on choosing autofocus points), I just thought I'd ask. Thanks.
