|D7000 - D7100: worth it?
Quote: So I decided not to bother with the upgrade. My D7000 serves my needs wonderfully and whilst I'm sure the D7100 is an admirable piece of kit, upgrading for the sake of it is stupid.
Spent some of the money that would have otherwise gone towards the newer camera on a new 50 mm lens for my Mamiya, which is a great lens.
I agree. I have a D90 and a D7000 and have one set up for landscapes etc and the D7000 for wildlife photography. I photograph each in equal measure. I have noticed the spec of the D7100 and feel that I don't want to jump on the bandwagon everytime a new model comes out. That's what the manufactures love people to do. I get great results from both cameras and as long as I work within the limitations of both and my lenses. The only upgrade I think would be sensible is to a FX format like the D800 but then I would have to upgrade all my lenses so that's an expensive option. I'll work with what I've got and strive to get the best results. There is a lot of satisfaction in doing that. I am after a really good pair of binocs anyway.

Thanks for a very interesting writeup. It has made me think about many things. i am always self critical about what i do and always trying to improve. i think you have made many valid points above. Thanks for that. Paul
