What Is your opinion on the D7100 as a professional camera?.

I'm a full time pro and up until recently I used a D3 and a D2Xs. I have mainly been using the D3 and only using the D2Xs for when I needed the crop factor or when I needed to use two bodies at once. It has really been showing It's age and was little or no use in winter.
I couldn't afford a D4 or D800 so started looking at the D7100. I thought It looked really good as a backup/ 2nd camera to compliment my D3.
I like the fact It has the 1.5 crop factor, It's compact size which could come in handy in some situations. Focus system and build quality seem on a par with full/semi pro bodies. Most of all the price.
So I've bought myself one and I am over the moon with It. It seems to be marketed as a purely amateur body but I feel this seriously under sells how good It is. In my opinion the only thing letting it down is the buffer size (6/9 frames raw/jpeg).

What is your opinion?
