| p.9 #7 · p.9 #7 · The "I just got my D7100" thread - first impressions, chatter, etc. |
I just got mine tonight and haven't been able to shoot anything but a badly lit room so far as it's dark outside.
My initial observations / criticisms:
The metering mode is not displayed in the viewfinder, which is annoying and the metering selection button is in an annoying position.
The Fn button is very hard to reach - it's a little finger jobby, which is just weird.
I set my Fn button to be used as temporary spot metering, but because of point 1 I'm not sure if it's working properly without removing my eye from the viewfinder.
The ridge on the grip beneath the shutter is very sharp after a while.
I like the quick ISO adjustment feature that can be assigned to the rear dial.
I think I will grow to like the U1 and U2 modes instead of having shooting banks as in the D300/D2H I've used.
AF seems at least as good as the D300.
From what I can see on the cameras screen the high ISO is a lot better than the D300.
The + & - buttons on the back are the wrong way around!
