By supercharging the resolution with a 24.1-megapixel CMOS sensor and removing the optical low-pass filter to capture finer detail, the Nikon D7100 delivers the best image quality we've ever seen in a Nikon APS-C-type DSLR. Add in a new 51-point autofocus system, full 1080p HD video recording with full-time AF, a nifty 1.3x crop mode that extends the camera's reach, and many more advanced, near-pro-level features, and it's clear the D7100 is a serious tool for shooters who want to get more serious about their photography.Pros
Solid, ergonomic body design; Stunning, highly detailed photos, thanks to 24.1MP sensor upgrade and removal of optical low-pass filter; Cool 1.3x crop mode extends reach to nearly 2x the full-frame equivalent; Records Full 1080p HD video at up to 30fps with full-time AF; Many pro-level features packed into a consumer-friendly body at reasonable price.Cons
Shallow buffer that hampers continuous burst shooting; AF slightly slower than average for its class; No real-time aperture control while in Movie mode (among other quirks); More noticeable moire patterns and aliasing artifacts (but only found when shooting fabrics with strong, distinct patterns).Price and availability
The Nikon D7100 started shipping in the U.S. in March 2013. It's available both body-only and in a kit with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens. Retail pricing for the body-only is around US$1,200, similar to cost of the D7000 at launch. In the 18-105mm kit, it costs around US$1,500.Imaging Resource rating
