Just Posted: Nikon D7100 in-depth review


The bottom line in all technology is real-world use. No airplane manufacturer would rate one airplane better than another based on wind-tunnel tests. You have to fly the planes first, then draw the conclusion.

Also, there is error in all tests. Even the most rigorous scientific testing, under the most controlled laboratory conditions, carries a standard error. Once results are close enough, they’re a tie. You don’t know if a tiny difference is due to random differences in the test or a real difference in what’s being tested.

Dpreview would do a disservice to average consumers by portraying the D7100 as having a huge difference in IQ compared to cameras like the D7000. It doesn’t have a huge difference, it has a tiny difference, if any, no matter how much you and others wave your arms in the air and say that other cameras aren’t “close”, etc.

Amadou, thanks for the review. It seems balanced, and I’m sure you realize that nothing you could say would please some people.
