Nikon’s new D7100 sets the standard for DSLRs in the prosumer bracket, combining an exceptional range of features into a reasonably affordable package. The photography world has been waiting for an upgrade to its predecessor, the D7000, for quite some time now. Taking a closer look at the D7100, we can see it’s a more sophisticated beast than its younger sibling.
First off, the D7100′s 24 megapixel sensor is not something to scoff at. Lacking an optical low-pass filter, Nikon’s new sensor strives for higher resolutions and image quality, obviously confident that the D7100′s sensor will not suffer from the optical risks involved with ditching the filter.
51 points of autofocus (AF) top off the technical side of things, enabling significant better quality images than many other prosumer devices on the market. Combine that with Nikon’s typically solid build and HD video shooting capability, and you’ve got a brilliant camera for all manner of amateur and semi-pro photography.
