Wonder if this will be the flagship for nikon dx dslr and permanently discountinue the D300/s product line. Meaning, no more D400...

Hmm... I just read the preview by Dpreview. It certainly is no slouch, but I wonder if it would sway current D7000 users. But then again, judging at the rate and price users are dumping their D7000, I'm sure it's success is guaranteed.

Of course, that's assuming everything works as they should....

A fresh round of dumping has started :bsmilie:

Anyways, it would be a shame that the D7100 will be plagued by AF or dust/oil splatter issues :bsmilie:

1.3x crop factor. Wow.
It is not 1.3x crop factor la. Must read properly.

It is DX format sensor. You can enable 1.3x crop mode and it will crop the FOV 1.3x more... making it a 2x crop. useful for video.

For sports too, cos under the 1.3x crop, the AF array will cover almost the whole of the frame ;)

I hope it has more internal buffer than the tiny one that the D7000 has.

How about warranty then? Amazon products doesn't comes with international warranty ? What if it comes out as oil issues ?

Does this mean this? (600mm * 2 * 1.4TC = 1680mm). If so, sounds good for birding!
