Nikon D7100  (Source: Nikon)
New DSLR will launch in March

Nikon has introduced its new D7100 mid-range D-SLR camera. Nikon calls the camera a HD-SLR that will usher in a new era of DX-format image quality and functionality for experienced users and enthusiasts. The camera has a resolution of 21.4-megapixels and uses a CMOS sensor combined with a 51-point autofocus system.

“Solidifying Nikon’s ongoing commitment to the DX-format D-SLR customer, the innovative D7100 provides new ways for photographers to capture their creative vision with incredible detail and precision, whether through still images or HD videos,” said Bo Kajiwara, Vice President of Marketing, Planning and Customer Experience, Nikon Inc. “The D7100 blends the best creative features with advanced-level functionality to give the enthusiast exactly what they want– and that’s a great shooting experience before, during and after capture, from shooting to sharing.”

The D7100 has integrated wireless functionality and can of course record in HD video resolutions. The camera is fitted with the EXPEED 3 image processing engine promising a wide dynamic range in a variety of light conditions. The ISO range is 100-6400 and can be expanded via Hi-2 to 25,600.

The D7100 also features Nikon's Color Matrix Metering II 2016-pixel RGB sensor and a Scene Recognition System. The technology recognizes the scene prior to shooting and automatically adjusts AF, AE, AWB, and other parameters for the best image quality. The camera can shoot at up to six frames per second with full resolution and up to seven frames per second using the 1.3x crop mode.

Other features of the D7100 include dual SD card slots and a 3.2-inch rear LCD.
The camera will launch in March at an MSRP of $1599.95 including an AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens. The camera body only will be available for $1199.95.

Any lens/camera combination can have front/back focus issues, regardless of AF.

Which is why I said it was weird he considers upgrading from D7000 to D7100 a cure for his problem.

And as for pros and full-frame? Plenty of pros use tiny cameras like m4/3 or DX equivalents.

They may use those for their holiday pictures and what not, but with limited bokeh and lack of low-light performance, I doubt they're using them at work.

I'm starting to suspect you don't know quite as much of the subject as you seem to want people to think you do.

And how much do I want people to think I know about the subject?

On a scale of 1 to 10, you're trying to be 11. And failing. Have a nice day!

I'm not a pro, therefore I wouldn't give myself anything above 5 or 6.

Yet you're trying to tell us "what pros would use" (hint: The biggest, baddest, highest-quality, most expensive tool ISN'T always the best for a given job) or that one needs USB3 to take better pictures.

Mmmmmm..... nah. Your credibility is right there with all other backseat tech commentators and armchair generals: Nil.
