Well I bit the bullet & pre-ordered one today. Hopefully i'll have it in about 4 weeks time, but just a pity it won't be 3 weeks though, as i'm staying at Silverdale near Leighton Moss bird reserve that week. :roll:

£989 is now the lowest UK price i've seen.

I think you have advertised a little too much for Nikon - buffer in the D7100 has not kept pace with the number of pixels - it is slower than the D7000 - at least if this fits:

http://nikonrumors.com/2013/02/21/nikon ... ison.aspx/

The slow buffer is the only thing I am very unhappy with in my D7000 (as you also said in your preview) - the rest is fine, but to get a slower buffer in a new model, it's too much, because the buffer in the D7000 is pretty devastating for sports and birding, and I think that the D7000 also is weather sealed like the D7100 - but perhaps it is a better weather seal on the D7100??

The firing of 1.3 crop to get faster buffer is not without loss - the window you look through becomes smaller, so it's not just something you do to get a better buffer, especially if you upgrade to get more resolution or better options for cropping.

So, sorry to say, I stay with my D7000 and live with the slow buffer, just not want an even slower buffer.

Frankie, nobody is forcing you to switch cameras. The known figures about buffer depth so far are only on paper, wait for the actual tests to make an opinion on this please :)
And if you really need more than 3-4 seconds of buffer, there are cameras that will do this job fine, but for most even just 1 or 2 seconds (6-12 frames) is plenty of photos to get what they look for, so buy what fits your needs.

Had a play with a D7100 today at Focus Exhibition in Birmingham. It is AWESOME!! Feels great, performs well. New AF is stunning, display is beautiful. Will deffo buy this over the D600 - suits my needs and budget better!

michduncg, your opinion on the new OLED viewfinder display is also as positive?

The Viewfinder and LED display were both fantastic, and a real step up from my D90. The AF display through the viewfinder is very vivid and colourful, making the 51 point system easy to use. The rear display has more pixels than an HD TV. I was truly blown away to be honest.

And the good news is that Nikon is about to launch a cashback offer in the UK in time for the D7100's launch. Not sure of the value of the cashback just yet, but had the notification on our company intranet today.

Actually the display is only vga resolution, but they name the pixels not in resolution but in rgb+w added together.
A full hd-tv would have 1920*1080*rgb amount of pixels if not mistaken.

Great that they aren't leaving us out re the cash-back offer. It's been running in the US for a while now.

Cheers Mich.

Hopefully I might even get it by next w/end if it does get into the shops that bit sooner, as some reports reckon & i'll then be able to take it away with me the following week. 8) (weather permitting though :roll: )

Hi WoutK89 - ref the LED display - I am quoting from the Nikon Roadshow presentation and so I guess the point they were making is that in an 8cm display there are over 1 million pixels. As most small screen LED tvs (<24"/61cm) are HD Ready rather then they may have a point.

The other fantastic feature I forgot to mention is the improvement in live view mode. You can now superimpose some of the viewfinder info on the screen now. Also you can preview the 'effect' modes in live view before you press the shutter button.

As you can tell - I am in love lol.

@oldcarlos - where are you planning on getting yours from? How much? Whats the best price for body only you have seen?

Hi Mich.

Mines ordered from a local dealer. Not the cheapest but local, trading in my D7k & I have quite a few gift vouchers for there too.
Cheapest i've seen it so far, is £989 from Mathers, Bolton Lancs.

Hi Carlos

Thanks for the reply - sorry, reading back my comment it seems very demanding lol. I didn't mean it to.

Michael

Really looking forward to read the first review on this camera. How will it compare to Nikon D600?

Hmmm - a little bad news. I was reading the Nikon Spring Cashback promotion pack at work today, and the D7100 would appear to be exempt. The cashback is due to start on March 14th and I am hoping that they have made a mistake - but otherwise its a little disappointing!

Yeah, it seems in the US the cashback also starts on the 14th, but only on the D7100 KIT! :(
