Amazing pro-quality DX camera.
5 July, 2014
At one point in time, this was considered a Professional-grade DX body - remember that. It is also significantly better than older, strictly "professional" and FX models.
For what it is, I love this camera. It is faster than the D800 by 2fps, and only has .5 stops less dynamic range.
For people on a budget who want a pro-quality DX, especially for sports or wildlife, there is nothing wrong with this model. The D7100 wasn't much of an upgrade. It also outperforms the D5200 in real-world shooting.
If you want to do portraiture, get an FX body. You'll thank me later. Dealing with a smaller equivalent frame and the loss of compression that APS-C sensors have isn't worth the cheaper price tag for a professional.
