Awesome Camera, I Own Two.
from Corpus Christi, TX, USA
I bought my first D7100 when they came out. I bought a second one about a year later to not have to change lens on the fly. My DX NIKKOR 18-300mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR is on one and my DX NIKKOR 35mm F1.8G is on the other most of the time. For Wide you can't beat DX NIKKOR 10-24mm F3.5-4.5G ED. I also have the great NIKKOR 50mm F1.4G. From shooting Wildlife to People, to Sunrises to Night shoots I am ready for anything. I shoot in Auto a lot and I always get the shot. I use the Scene mood a some too. I am a US Marine and had a TBI so keeps it easy. I love the DX reach. I am very happy with the photos I take daily, so are my FB fans. Semper Fi
SO Sad :(
I have the camera for 4 months now and had problems with the auto focus since I received it . I thought it was me but is the camera auto focus system ugh! I guess I didn't save money after all, so disappointed .
An excellent performer built to last
I've been shooting with this camera for more than a year now, and it has never failed me once. I've shot with this camera in the rain and snow, in hot weather and in extreme cold, and nothing seems to phase it. It's been up and down mountains, on road trips, and on a tripod in several rivers. I've had many great adventures with this camera slung over my shoulder. A DSLR isn't something you should have to treat super-carefully, like a little baby. When you sling your camera over your shoulder, it's going to be smacked against door frames, trees, and whatever else you try to squeeze between. A DSLR should be built tough, so that it can withstand drops, smacks, and crashes. I have found that this Nikon D7100 can hold up to any abuse caused by a serious photographer. The 24.1 megapixel sensor does an amazing job of capturing the tiniest of details (with a good lens, of course). I love the 51-point autofocus, because I can move the little point where ever I want when my camera is on my tripod. Autofocus is fast and accurate, and I like how it can focus with both AF and AF-S lenses. My two favorite features of this camera are the backlit LCD display on the top plate, and the weather sealing. The backlight comes in handy when shooting at night or in dark locations. Even when your eyes are accustomed to the night, the backlight never hurts your eyes when you turn it on. Without weather sealing, I wouldn't have been able to make so many of the images I have made. I definitely recommend this camera. It's tough, seriously reliable, comfortable to hold, and an all-around solid performer.

A great enthusiast-targeted camera body
I've been shooting with this camera body and a Nikon 80-200mm 2.8 lens for around a year now and am very pleased with its performance. I was a bit hesitant to get this body at first because Nikon decided to omit the optical low-pass filter and I had read that there was a potential for moirÃ©-induced artifacts when shooting stills of objects with fine patterned detail. Well I have not run into that problem yet. The photos I've taken with this camera have been great. In my opinion this is the next camera body you want to upgrade to if your not quite ready to spend the money on a pro body.

Wonderful Piece of Art
from League City, TX, USA
I am fairly new to the photography industry and have just got this camera with a 18-55mm, 55-300mm, and 40mm lenses. So far, this is the best camera I have ever used. I don't understand all the specs about it but I'm learning and am enjoying it and am quiet pleased. Its wonderful entering the photography world and I'm glad I joined with this camera
First Digital SLR
Learned the basics of light/composition on an F series back in college. Since, had primarily used point and shoot 35mm and then point and shoot digital, along with phone cameras. Was not at all happy with the images compared to those I produced in the dark room. I also wanted to take quality images of my work for my portfolio/website/marketing materials, so after a lot of reading and research, settled on the D7100 crop sensor to start. Chose a 70-300 FX and a 16-85 DX both VR lenses to compliment. I cannot believe the quality of images this camera has produced. I do plan to transition to a career in photography and this is the perfect tool to hone my skills. I am also considering the D810 full to further extend my arsenal of Nikon quality. The images have not been processed at all. Would enthusiastically recommend this camera.
This Camera is Pretty Great
from Seattle, WA
This camera is fantastic. If you know what you're doing, then it will be a perfect tool for your photography. This is my first DSLR from a NX300, and the difference is enormous. Performance wise, this camera seriously delivers, and the low-light image quality is probably the best Iv'e seen in an APS-C sensor DSLR. Actually though: If you know what you're doing or has a general sense on shooting outside of auto, then this camera will be perfect for you.

from Kansas City, MO, USA
I just got one of these to replace my D7000. Well I am blown away at the increase in picture quality. The 24 megapixels and removal of a low pass filter really make for some fantastic images out of this camera. The focus system is also much improved. I am an HDR photographer and this camera has far superior HDR features with expanded bracketing and an in-camera two shot HDR function. I had a similar function in my old D5100 however this sensor has better dynamic range and you can shoot a series easily whereas the D5100 was harder to access and only allowed one shot. Anyway... I am very excited about this camera, picture quality is superb, ISO is improved by a couple stops allowing very clean shots up to 3200 ISO. With noise reduction software (DXO) 6400 ISO shots would be okay. Some of the new 1.8 and 1.4 aperture glass on the market is making this camera a very strong contender. The gap is getting very narrow between full frame and crop camera's. It's awesome ... the down side probably is the small buffer... if your a spray and pray shooter RAW is going to bring this camera to its knee's in one second of continuous burst shooting. Good job on this camera Nikon.... I am picky about my camera's and this body is truly capable of professional results.

Great camera to use beyond "P" mode
from San Francisco, CA, USA
I purchased the D7100 a couple of years ago and it is still a very reliable camera. I brought it on a cross-country drive where I'm sure it bounced around in the car going over potholes on the interstate. It's 24mp sensor captures amazing detail with excellent clarity recorded on two SD slots. The setting can be changed for various slot configurations, but I prefer RAW image files to be saved on both cards so I have a backup in case one fails. It's a great camera to use beyond "P" mode as I always have it set on Manual. I like that it fits comfortably in my hand and can make manual adjustments easily without having to take my index finger off the shutter button. I can adjust the aperture with my middle finger using the front command dial while my thumb can adjust the shutter speed on the rear command dial or select on any of the 51 focus areas using the multi-selector without having to recompose the framing in the viewfinder. If I need to adjust the ISO, I can easily hold down the ISO button with my left thumb while adjusting the sensitivity with my right thumb on the rear command dial all without taking my eye away from the viewfinder. Using only available light, I have had to use ISO 3200, of course quality is degraded and obvious noise in the image, but still tolerable. I've used the D7100 to photograph sports and corporate events and never had to stop because the buffer was full and wait for images to save on the SD cards. The D7100 is able to keep up with the actions I want to capture. It offers plenty of creative possibilities including video which I've dabbled with plugging a wireless microphone. Live View is nice, but prevents aperture adjustment and selecting a different focus area once started. Still, it's a great value for all that it offers and what the camera can do. I've been more than satisfied with my purchase as I enjoy photographing my Pomeranian during our travels and adventure together. I hope you find pleasure with the D7100 to capture memories of whatever is special to you.
