Nikon announced the D7100 earlier today, the replacement for the widely successful D7000. The D7100 receives a significant upgrade in resolution (up to 24MP from 16MP), a substantially upgraded AF module, full weather resistance and dust sealing, and a magnesium alloy body, along with upgraded video and wireless capabilities.
Photographers and enthusiasts alike have long been awaiting a successor for the D300S and the D7000. It appears Nikon has decided to combine the two models in the D7100. With full 1/250 flash sync, 1/8000s top shutter speed, fast 6 fps image capture, and a Mg alloy body they have carried over the professional features from the D300s that were missing on the D7000. Other notable features include the addition of 1080/24p full stereo video, a new 1.3 crop mode for a 2X angle of view, and an optional WU-1a Wireless Transmitter that will sync with free Android and iOS apps for image sharing.
This camera will be a boon to wildlife/sports photographers who enjoy the benefits of a DX camera as will as those who don't feel the necessity to upgrade to a full frame (FX) camera.
The Nikon D7100 will be available in March 2013 at authorized Nikon Canada dealers at a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $1,229.95 for the body-only configuration. The WU-1a Wireless Mobile Adapter is available from authorized Nikon Canada dealers at an MSRP of $69.95.
