The 18% SNR (midtones) between the D7000 and D7100 are the same but the D7100 has a 1-stop DR advantage at High ISO, which is achieved by reducing High ISO read noise in half. This translates into a 1-stop noise advantage in the deep shadows, which for some images will provide a material improvement over D7000 images.
I am a Canon user. I would like to upgrade, but here is my concern. I have found the 7D with an f/2.8 lens to be insufficient to shoot kids sports in marginally lit gyms. I almost jumped to the D7000 a few months back, thinking it would provide some improvement, but I never did.
Now I'm looking at the D7100, thinking it will be a marked improvement in terms of usable iso and getting those sort of dark gym shots, but comments like this one lead me to believe that it is almost status quo from the D7000. Is there a consensus among Nikon shooters on this who moved from 7000 to 7100? How much better is low light action performance?
I'm still thinking about jumping from Canon, but I'm really not sure if the D7100 makes sense (vs a D7000). I was hoping it would be something of a slam dunk, but I suppose not.
Any comments would be appreciated!
