Will Nikon upgrade/FIX the D7100's buffer/write times on the memory card? Can't buy the D7100 if it sucks so bad

Hi there, I have a D7000 and I love it.

I've been playing around with the D7100 and I like it, I like the sharpness of it and a few other things, except that, as many have pointed out, the buffer is too small.

I've tested it with many types of SD cards and even the fastest is too slow for my tastes, compared to the D7000. I shoot mostly in full RAW files.

Now, the a question I have is whether Nikon will ever 1) release firmware to correct 2) update at the factory level, the buffer capacity of the camera?

I tell you, after taking about 4 to 6 shots, the camera is just lagging to write the files to the the memory card and I cannot shoot as fast as the D7000.

It may seem like a minor point to most people, but to us photogs, you know how important having the speed is.

Do you think Nikon even knows we are complaining about this and do you think they are planning to address it? Or is the D7100 pretty much a done product for them?

Anyone have actual inside knowledge of this?

I'd like to purchase the D7100, I'm just afraid it would drive me batty.

Ronald
