When Nikon first announced the D7000 back in 2010, the camera world was united in the fact that it was probably one of the best DX cameras in the market for its price. Fast forward a couple of years and Nikon is doing away with any hope of a D300s successor by making the D7100 the flagship camera in the DX range. Keeping true to its predecessor, the D7100 retains the value for money and featureset that has made it a hit with most photographers.
The D7100 features an improved 24.1MP sensor as well as a much better 51 point autofocus system which is big improvement over the D7000. Another interesting feature is that the D7100 omits the AA filter, something like the D800E, leading for more detail in your pictures. On top of this, the video recording has been improved to 1080p at both 60i and 30p.
We have no information on the local pricing or availability of the D7100 but in the US, it is up for pre order now for a price of USD1,199. At that price the D7100 is indeed a worthy successor to the D7000. Hit the jump for a comparison between the D7000 and D7100
