Right out of the box, it worked better than I had anticipated. What a relief!

I was one of those D7000 owners who fretted and fiddled with AF Fine Tune interminably until I got it set up for my three major lenses. I took the D7000 in to Nikon to have the AF checked while it was still on warranty and got it back with a note that there was no improvement they could make. It was taking very sharp photos after being reset to factory settings but I still had to set up the AF Fine Tune again for the different focal lengths of the different zoom lenses I use. So it was finally taking the shots I wanted. And then I tried the video. What an ordeal! Shaky is not the word for it.

I took two courses in the use of the camera and still had misgivings about it. My love of the D7000 stumbled right from the outset. But not so with the D7100!

The D7100 works the way it should giving effortless razor sharp photos and fast operation. Back to 51 AF points like my D300. It is one hot machine. No going back. The European award last week gave recognition where it is due. Nikon hit it out of the park with this one. That Toshiba sensor doesn't need a quick pass filter so the shots are cleanly sharp. What a major step for Nikon to break with Sony on that one! Thanks, Nikon. This is camera I have been waiting for for decades. Now I can retire a happy man...
