Nikon D7100 review

After using the Nikon D7000 for a year, Nikon finally suddenly announced it’s successor. I quickly upgraded as the D7100 fixes most of the problems I had with the D7000. A short overview.

Why would I upgrade within such a short time span? It’s all in the little details for this amazing camera.

Some great features I discovered when I started using the D7100:

As you can see on the picture, I also got the battery grip. My issue with the D7000 was that it was hard to hold for me; my hands are too big; the fingers kept slipping off. Even though the Nikon grip is really really expensive, it is very well made. The construction is much stronger compared to the D200, and seems to be made of the same materials as the camera itself.

The D7000 to me was a way to bridge the time until a D400 would turn up. The video and ergonomic features were imperfect, but good enough to get started again. Now the D7100 was announced, I’m really doubting if there will ever be a D400. Regardless, this camera serves all my needs, and the concessions in ergonomics are well worth the other features. This camera will keep me happy for the years to come.
