  • Great results already, more potential to follow.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Nicknair - September 21, 2013

    I got this camera, with the 35mm DX lens, and the 70-300 telephoto lens, before a very picture-heavy trip. I did not have as much time before the trip as I would've liked to learn the features to this camera. However, I got some fantastic pictures that I will cherish forever. With minimal expertise, I was able to get amazing wildlife photography done. I can't wait to learn more, and take advantage of all of the features on this camera. Get the Wi-Fi adapter to transfer photos to a tablet while on vacation. This camera has two SD card slots, but it was great security to get their photos onto the cloud. Plus, the smartphone/iPad app doubles as a remote control.

  • Best DX camera for an enthusiast
    Verified BuyerReviewed by vlanctot - October 11, 2014

    A great camera for those looking to upgrade as it adds many of the menu functions of a beginner camera to the outside body, allowing the user to control most of the camera without diving into the menus. This camera is built tough and it fits great in your hands ergonomically. It is weather resistant allowing use in not so great weather. It has a built-in focus motor so it is compatible with older lenses and even 3rd party lenses that don't have the auto-focus motor built in. The auto-focusing system is superb and its able to grab a focus point, even in terrible light. This is the best camera you can purchase from Nikon before moving into the full-frame realm.

  • Superb Camera
    Verified BuyerReviewed by NikonD7100Fan - March 28, 2013

    Nikon has delivered a gem with this camera. The published technical spec's & reviews validated purchasing the camera. This is was an upgrade from a D40x. Obviously, quantum leap in performance and features, but, it has been very easy to appreciate and use the new capabilities of the D7100. Auto focus is awesome, 6 fps will be enjoyed taking sport action shots of the kids, ISO range rocks, photo IQ delivered. Add quality glass to your camera and your images will be captured precisely. I look forward to learning all that I can do with this camera and will enjoy the excellent quality memories produced for many years to come. Best camera for the price. Thanks Nikon!
