Yes! The D7100 fully supports All Nikon F mount AF lenses including those made by third parties with the exception of the Nikkor 80mm f/2.8 and 200mm f/3.5 made for the F3AF. It also supports metering with AI and AIS type MF lenses.
This is a bit off topic, but here goes anyway. I was getting despondent about the results I was getting with my D7100 and was beginning to blame my DX glass. It was actually my ancient monitor that was to blame so I bought a new one. Result, euphoria!
Great point. In this digital era we can have the best photo equipment but end up trusting the results from a $2000+ camera and lens to a $500 computer screen. I can not remember the last time I calibrated my monitor.

And that's another thing. I used the Windows tool to calibrate my new (HP Pavilion 23xi) monitor, but I am aware there are third party calibration devices. Who uses what and why?
Thanks for the answer on lens compatibility, I am sticking funds away for the NIKON 7100 . It sound like it captures quality images, if they seem to appear less than great I will check my monitor. I hope this clears up how you get from camera, lens, image quality and to making sure that the image appears on my monitor accurately.
I love my 7100 but Sigma 18-250mm lens does not sit well with the camera.....there are forums out there talking about this and I have to send in my glass now to get it rechipped by sigma. I thought it was user error till I used my 18-55 and saw the huge IQ difference. I'm now switching back to Nikkor glass.......live and learn!
