I bought one, had to go through three to find one which shot well on all AF points, but once I did… WOW! You MUST use great lenses with it, but if you do, the clarity and sharpness down to the pixel-peeping level is simply unbelievable! Haziness is gone from the images. Out-of-Camera JPEGs can be printed directly, they don't even need Photoshop's Unsharp Mask. At high ISOs the grain looks more like film grain than color noise, which is a huge improvement, IMHO. Looks more "artistic". At low ISOs the detail captured is stupendous. This will send everyone else back to their drawing boards as they rethink the AA filters on all DX DSLRS (except Pentax who already makes a non-AA model). I predict the Canon 7DII will see a delay as I'd imagine they'll spec an imager without an AA filter.
To put it another way, the D7100 files straight from the camera will compete with Canon 5D3 files until the ISO goes past 1000, and might even be a tick better from 100-800. No joke.
