I recently purchased a used D7100 body + 18-140 VR lens for about what the body is worth. Everything is immaculate and looks like the shutter has been used less than 3k. Same seller has a Nikon 85mm prime that I may purchase as well. The D7100 replaces a D7000 that I was never quite happy with. The D7000 delivered fewer tack sharp photos than I was used to achieving from previous Nikon bodies (D70-80-90). Exposure was fine overall, and sometimes a bit under- which I prefer so I can adjust in Lightroom. I never attempted to adjust the AF and decided to leave it as is. I felt I could live with the % of focus issues because low light performance was much better than I expected. I consider my ability to be the equivalent of an advanced amateur and I photograph a few events per year just for fun or as a volunteer. Often I found myself fighting the camera to get acceptable images. I have not had that issue since before I upgraded from a P&S to the D70. I have followed the various threads regarding the shortcomings of this body and I tend to agree that something was not quite right in the basic design. Too many people have come forward with issues for the problems to be pure "user error". Many had reported out of focus or focusing issues when using a full automatic setting. All that said, I have captured some great images with this body, but either I was lucky, or I spent a good bit of time in post processing. From the first photo, the D7100 has been what I was looking for. Tack Sharp (even with the kit lens) and perfect exposure. I am still learning all of the settings for the body, but this may be the one that keeps me from upgrading for awhile ! I have used it to photograph items for sale. Photo conditions varied from natural light, to incandescent to flash. Other than cropping, images have required minimal post processing. Focus, exposure, balance, saturation have been spot on. I expect to use it for a family event in the near future. It will be interesting to see my results after taking a few hundred pictures at the event. I realize that the D7100 has been replaced by the D7200, but Nikon has a winner in the D7100. Just my thoughts and opinions- others may differ.
