There's some more detailed information here:

Quote
New 51-Point AF System - The D7100 features Nikon’s professionally proven and lightning-fast 51-point AF system, with a new Multi-CAM 3500DX AF module. Additionally, the AF system and exposure are augmented with Nikon’s 3D Color Matrix Metering II 2,016-pixel RGB sensor and Scene Recognition System, which recognizes the scene prior to shooting in order to adjust AF, AE, AWB and other parameters. The results of this system are accurate and even exposures, sharp details and vivid color, frame after frame. For additional precision, 15 of the 51 AF points are cross-type, and the center point is functional at f/8, giving DX photographers an additional telephoto advantage when using a teleconverter.

So f8 af and rgb metering? Let's see if Canon will put these 1dx-features in the 7d2... but the really interesting point driving the water to may eyes (7d2 estimated >$2000...):

Quote
The Nikon D7100 will be available starting in March 2013 for the suggested retail price (SRP) of $1599.95* with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens or $1199.95 for the body only configuration.

And again: Nikon did it right.
Let us see, if the 7D2 is the plus of 600-800$ worth, when the 7D2 will come on market in the End of 2013.
The 7100 will be availaböle in some weeks....

Friends of mine told me that they read in an Nikon blog this night that the 7100 will be able to use UHS-I cards. If you use 2 of  theses, 6 fps in raw will be able. continuously. And using lenses with an "maximal" aperture of 8!!!
 I do not know if this is really right, but we will see in some days, when the first users will hold the Cam in their hands.

It seems it will compete more with the 70D than a 7D mark ii. I wish they had put in a swivel screen and 60p 1080p. Disappointed.

This looks to be a great piece of equipment. Great for the competition. But the price seems very low. Are they doing the same mistake here as they did with the D800 and selling it too cheap?

Just a note, when it comes to the 6D taking only SD and the 5D3 having one SD and 'only' one CF slot, a lot of people have come down hard on that deeming the cameras being close to useless. Where are they now when this one takes only SDs?

Disappointed.

Yes, it's more a 70d (my guess $1400+, iif it even exists) equivalent ... but disappointing? For $1200?! Starting Price! This is so economical I first thought it would be a typo - probably that's why Canon will expand the ff route like their CEO recently said, more money to be made in the high-end enthusiast's segment. The only positive news for Canon: The d7100 will be sold out for months, so Canon will have some time to counter.

i do not see low light captured images this time though?  normally, nikon will post some of low light capture images on any new models, but not this one.  however, imo, look like the photographer was pulling fill light on the first image quite a bit (note:  take a look at yellow color exposing directly to sunlight and beneath water - camera angle was not perpendicular with water surface; therefore, reflect light from water will be lost and will be dark in the image since the photographer was trying to get correct color from the plane.  however, this is just a guess based on my understanding about light... nothing scientific though.  in addition, set of exposure at 1/500 seconds, f/11 with iso 100 is normally for bright snow to my understanding...)

http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d7100/sample.htm

in short, nice capturing images and all are sharp to my taste...  i am not a nikon everyday user, but only weekend at costco, so put it in costco warehouse for me to play around with :P

canon... canon... canon... where is my 7d mark ii, do not turn me down and please post un-edited for us to see please...

The 7100 seems to have an very good IQ with low noise up to Iso 6400.
 Better superb IQ @6400 then low IQ @25600....

And, this Cam has an  an very good AF with an big AF area in the screen. And Able to use lenses with an maximal aperture of 8!
(Nikon blog)

(I would be pleased to use my 100-400 with my 1,4 III converter on the 7D2....)

i GUESS it is pretty hard for nikon to sold out d7100 as soon as they want since nikon users already hear about the rumors of nikon d400

This was discussed on an Nikon blog too: The D400 will an high end crop model. priced between the D600 and 800. Very fast AF, many cross sensors, maybe continuous raw shooting @5 fps. UHS-I fast cards....

One question: New sensor technology by using "white" dots (not only red green blue) to get really white dots. Does thaht Canon use too in the newer Cams?
