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.

First and foremost, the D7000 is notorious for back focusing, and does so more than any other Nikon DSLR I have owned - regardless of lens.

Second, I have no need for full frame for the majority of what I do (sports and action sports) since most/all of what I do gets cropped for 8x10 size or smaller and those extra pixels just get cut. Depending on lens/ambient lighting/etc, the D7000 does quite well in low light even as high as ISO 4000 or 5000 (depending on ambient light). The move to expeed 3 will just make it even better.

I'm not aware of a specific problem with D7000. Not saying it's not there, just that it's the first time I have heard about it.

If we're talking outdoor sports, yes, a DX could suffice (the extra zoom even comes in handy). But for indoor, with a full frame you wouldn't even have to apply noise reduction at ISO6400 (based on a D700, see here: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond700/30 )

I have a d7000 and didn't notice the back focus issue in my sample (I spend most of my time using a nikon 10-24mm so it's hard to get focus problems there, but the 50 f1.8 or 70-300vr 2 I also own didn't give me too many gripes there)

As for the performance of the D7100... Let's talk about that after it's in the market and properly reviewed.
