Nikon's new D7100 wasn't designed to be their new flagship camera for the at-home players above the incredibly popular D7000, instead its meant to be a strong partner within their DX series. That said, that doesn't mean there aren't some significant improvements, beginning first with ergonomic changes, including magnesium top and rear covers that are weather-resistant, a lock added to the newly-textured modes, and a new 3.2 inch LCD monitor can be found at the back. At the heart of the D7100 is a 24.1MP APS-C format sensor and the same autofocusing system as those in the higher ranges, with a 51 AF point Multi-Cam 3500 DX module on board, which are cross-type with phase detection autofocus capable of working down to -2EV. The usual array of video recording options are present, as well as the two SD card slots and the 1900mAh EN-EL15 battery, but its optical low-pass filter has been omitted. Perhaps the most exciting part of this entire story is that buyers won't have to wait too long to purchase, with Nikon expecting sales to begin by the end of March.
