Most of you heard the story this summer how I drowned my D200, leaving me with just the D7000. While I'm not a Pro, I'm not comfortable having just one camera. I had visions (delusions??) of getting a FX. Looked at the D700 and D3 on ebay was affordable... I was talking with my local wildlife mentor and he offered me a D4 at an amazing deal... Still more than I could afford. He then offered a D7100 with less than 200 actuations. Again at a good deal, so to save my marriage and not go so deep in debt I opted for the D7100. While waiting for my friend to show up I got some pictures of ducks. I went back with the new camera and got some more.

Not a real comparison as the lighting and distance to subject wasn't consistent.
I had upgraded my computer to 16GB because loading the pictures in LR was taking a lot of time. Well... the 24.2 mp is slowing me back down. I need to review LR and look for some performance tips.
The battery grip in not interchangeable to the 7100 so I will be picking one up as I like the extra bulk and of course power.
