Ray these are amazing. As a fellow D7000 shooter the D7100 does look interesting. They kept the base price very near if not the same as the D7000 when it came out if my memory is right. If you take the plunge, I will be curious how you think it compares.

Mark, nice door images.

Jeff, that favorite trail of yours looks like a nice place to take a walk. Well captured.

Chuong, the composition and lighting of the flower and vase is first rate.

Chin, another nice Oolong portrait. Neat that you and Anton are able to hookup.

Chuong - I like this very much. It's nice how you eliminated the BG.

Chin - Good bokeh play! I hope you and Anton can meet up.

Thank you Tony, Rafael, Kevin, Leighton, Jeff, Ron, Chuong, Ronnie and Scott.
Hope you have a great trip Rafael.
Jeff great B&W conversion
Chuong I love the flower
Scott I love my D7000 and as a person who tends to crop in order to get the correct composition, this upgrade is just what I need. Clean images of the D800E, weather sealing of the D4, dynamic range of the D600, 1/8000 and low light speed and focus of the D800 and for those odd times an autofocus that can't be beat. I also like the idea of the 1/3 crop factor as well as keeping all the things that I already love about the D7000. It looks like a lot of camera for the same money as it's predecessor.

Thanks Scott, Leighton, and Ray.
I just learned this morning that DX is just a crop of FX. I had no idea
However, I also learned that DOF in FX is narrower so you get better isolation. This is a big factor for me so I will still pursuing FX once uncle Sam is happy.

I think full frame made sense for you. I can see how it helps with portrait and landscape. I considered the D600 but several things held me back. Price, 1/4000 top speed and losing the extra reach. I am more of a wildlife, flowers and landscape photographer. I can count on one thing every three years I want a new camera. I am just happy that Nikon is keeping up with quality in it's DX line!

Although the DOF is narrower in a FX you can get great isolation with DX. To me the extra reach is worth the trade off. This is using the 180 2.8 AI

Look what I got from Reagan in the mail today, the 28mm f2.8 AI-s. It was a deal I couldn't refuse.

Thanks Reagan!

I have used that lens and it is a beauty. I guess your 24mm will be for sale soon? Congrats Leighton!

You're right, it is a beauty. I may keep my 24mm unless you want it, I'll sell it to you for what I bought it off Brad for.

I am going to sell my 28-50mm f3.5 AI-s though. If anyone is interested PM me before it goes on the B&S board.

I bought my 24mm AIS off of John when I first got my D7000 but thank you GLWS

Check this thread out. http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/1191862

I wasn't sure about the "reach" but based on what they are explaining, "reach" is a cropped of FX. So I can just shoot in FX and crop it manually to get the "reach" in DX. No loss to IQ.

...but, it seems like the D7100 is offering more with another layer of crop factor.

Chuong, On the D7100 a 300 mm lens would give the same Field Of View as a 450mm lens would on a D600.
If you employ the 1.3 extra crop value on the D7100 the 300mm would have the equivalent FOV of a 600mm lens However the MP would be reduced to 15.2 MP instead of 24 MP. You are correct that you could crop this after in post but with the D7100 you can see what you are getting in the camera. Clear as mud?
If you crop the image of the D600 to equal the 450mm FOV of the D7100 The IQ would theoretically be better on the D7100 because you would be cropping away many MP's of information from the 24 MP D600
I usually end up cropping most of my images so I prefer the extra reach of the D7100
