    They look impressive.

  • NRA Advocate

    Allow me to be the first to day it >> “Why didn’t Nikon give us a D400, instead of this thing?!” ;)

    • chubbs

      LOL, you forgot to mention you were switching to Canon.

      • Banned

        Come on he’s a gun nut, he will just go shoot people at Ritz camera down at the Mall to show Nikon who’s boss.

        • NRA Advocate

          Another bleeding-heart liberal Socialist who wants to abolish the Second Amendment, I see.

          • Mike

            Lol. The answer to smoking causing cancer is to smoke more! Lets out cancer the cancer! You NRA red neck hicks are the laughing stock for the rest of the world. You embarrass yourself with comments like that.

        he doesn’t understand canon,

      Let me join you >> Where is the true replacement of D700?

      • gr8fan

        You are comparing apples and orange: FX vs. DX…

        • iamlucky13

          Nah, there’s more similarity than that. More like Honeycrisp’s vs Fuji’s.

          • Up $#!t’s creek!

            or red delicious vs golden delicious…

        • RamesesThe2nd

          The point is not FX or DX. The point is that I need the next camera that Nikon hasn’t released yet.

          • Rudi

            Sure, otherwise you would be out and taking photos, right?

          • desmo

            and when they release it you won’t be satisfied

      • temp

        I think it’s called the D4 or D800.

        • Jenn

          They’re joking. A lot of people seem to have missed that.

    • marque27

      agreed.

    • Joe

      So tired of waiting and the buffer of that shitty D7100 sucks. Switching to Linhof Technika now. That has one HUGE buffer, a body that fits to my hands and real PROFESSIONAL controls.

      • congo

        Have fun with it :)

      • plasticexistence

        LOL
        Plus: Standing in heavy rain with your Linhof , you can finally switch to ISO 50. Now, go out and do that with your D7100. ;)

    • CMonster

      Cookie ?

  • yay

    Wow, pic at 1600 ISO. Awesome!

  • CJ

    Some of the samples are not so good. There are two or three photos use questionable choice of FoD.

    • CJ

      I mean DoF.

    I see Too much Noise in the Cockpit shot in the instrumental area

    • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.nowland Daniel Nowland

      I don’t want to get personal, but there is much more noise in your profile pic and the cockpit shot deals much better with the blacks. Both your picture and the Flickr shot deal with high contrast scenes and the D7100 has done very well. I’ll be giving serious thought to replacing my D300 with the D7100. Looks like a fantastic camera for the price.

      • http://www.facebook.com/daniel.nowland Daniel Nowland

        Ah, you were joking! Right? Nice creative profile pic btw.

  • chubbs

    Nice! I can’t wait to get one.

  • GeofFx

    Is it me/my monitor or are these images underexposed and have issues with white balance?

    • Banned

      Yes the snow pictures are underexposed. The snow appears gray as a result. This is actually correct behavior from the exposure sensor since its job is to keep a neutral average across the entire scene. The sensor doesn’t know that this is snow and it should appear bright white, not gray. That’s the photographer’s job and this one ain’t worth a dime if you ask me. You’re supposed to overexpose in a snow environment unless you’re going to post process later to make that snow white again.

      • iamlucky13

        Mostly correct, especially about the job of the photographer, but…

        With matrix metering, the sensor attempts to figure out what is in the scene, and thus properly expose lightly colored scenes, even though an averaging meter would simply average everything to middle grey. If matrix metering were as good as Nikon claims, it would nail this, but it doesn’t, so I would not call it correct behavior by the meter.

        The EXIF data says this was indeed matrix metering, with no exposure compensation, although based on his ISO and shutter speed and normal sunlight, it looks like he did underexpose by part of a stop and brought it up in post.

        I’m not on a good monitor to evaluate this right now, but the white balance and exposure look pretty close to right to me.

        We could have a reasonable argument about how bright snow should be, but with the current dynamic range that digital SLR’s achieve, I generally believe it should retain some texture and only hit pure white in the peak highlights, rather than blowing out all over.

        • alvin

          they were almost all shot with ADL “on” in contrast and brightness, probably they were underexposed and pulled up..

      • Robert

        What many people forget about Nikon’s Matrix metering system – and where it differs from other evaluative metering systems – is that after it makes the reading, it compares the scene to more than 100,000 images stored in its database. Theoretically, at least, snow scenes should be in there, and the camera ought to compensate accordingly.

        The problem, of course, is that you only get one shutter speed/aperture combination, no matter how sophisticated your meter, which, of course takes us back to user input — adjusting the image yourself, bracketing so that you can do HDR…or whatever.

        Until someone develops a shutter with different segments that can activate/deactivate independently of one another based on an evaluative meter’s reading/algorithms, no fully automatic system can overcome this.

        The problem with THAT solution is that it will complicate the user’s aperture and shutter speed options in so far as they affect other elements of picture control.

        • neversink

          Use bracketing controls if you wish. With digital, immediate gratification is upon us, so I find I never use auto bracketing. if I bracket, I do it in my head after evaluating the first shot. Of course, there often isn’t much time to bracket when taking action shots of sports or riots.

  • GeofFx

    Ignore my previous post. It seems that the Flickr preview is to blame. Once I clicked on individual images to bring them up in their own window, everything is fine.

    …ISO 1600 does’t look impressive at all :(!

    • KnightPhoto

      Smooth background like that is problematic for any sensor. Evaluate the subject (which looks pretty good doesn’t it?)

      • http://www.facebook.com/andrei.constantin.9674 Andrei Constantin

        Yes the subject looks great at F5.6…..really sharp :)!
        Nikon claims that D7100 has a 1 stop advantage over the D7000…well I can’t see that difference…..I was expecting more after 3 years … even if there is 1 stop is just a to small difference…As far as resizing …sorry not interested….. just saying:)!

        • Jon McGuffin

          Can you show me where Nikon points out the 1-stop advantage you are speaking of? I for one don’t see any improvement at ISO 1600. The sample image is riddled with color noise in the dark spaces and my only hope is that this was an image generated straight out of camera as a .jpg. *IF* that’s the case, it’s probably about equal to my D7000 which is adequate. But certainly NOT a stop better.

    • VLAD

      that was my first impression too. My D700 looks better at that

      • VikingAesir

        Are you really surprised that your 12mp FX looks better at ISO 1600 than a 24mp DX?

      • j.sim.

        Try resizing that 24mp file to the D700′s 12 and then compare. No way the D700 will look that good then…

      • http://www.facebook.com/andrei.constantin.9674 Andrei Constantin

        looks like ISO 4000 on D700 :)!

      • grant torres

        Come on now, let me give you a pat on your back…shhh, shhh. Your d700 will always be better. Stop crying now, come on, dont feel threatened by the newer toys. Yours will always be better…

  • alouette

    hey! that’s in my hometown :-)

  • flowgeek

    hmmm…

    terrible cromatic abberation on the sea gull – thought this problem is gone…

    high noise level in the shades in the image of the brasserie even at iso 200…

    hope that that camera can do better and this is just a image format conversion issue…

    • iamlucky13

      Chromatic aberration is caused by the lens, not the camera. From the EXIF data, it looks like the photo was taken with the 70-300, which does have a little bit of CA.

      The D7100 does remove CA. I don’t know if CA removal was used for those photos. I suspect yes, as it looks cleaner than what I usually get from my 70-300, but regardless, it’s only slightly visible, and not even objectionable, at 100% on a 24-freaking-MP image.

      I don’t know what you’re talking about with regards to noise. I just spent a couple minutes staring at the photo of the brasserie and see only a slight graininess in the shadow areas, similar to what the D7000 shows. Shadow noise is a weakness of the D7100, but it remains trivial up to about ISO 1600, and even higher you usually still get usable images as long as you aren’t viewing full size.

      • flowgeek

        well… agree on the CA – just wonder why it’s not corrected – could be a bad raw converter… but it’s so bad that i even see it on the 1024×683 pixel image…

        if the noise is hardly visible for you – good for you… but i do need full size images as i print them large (1m wide or even more) and not just look at them on a tiny screen…
        thus, if i don’t care about the noise, i could use as well my cellphone…

        on those pictures, i just see at least as much noise as on my d7000 – if not even more – and i don’t need to look for it on the full size images…
        i just think that’s very dissapointing considering the performance of the sensor of the d800 – with a similar pixel pitch as the d7000 but much better noise performance. i just hoped they wohld use the same sensor architecture just cropped to DX on the d7100… (ok gives some space for a d400 ;o))
        or comparing it to the d7000 there seems to be no improvement in performance in the image quality…

        • Spy Black

          The 70-300 is the problem. Anytime you stretch the zoom range beyond 3x, image quality suffers. The 70-200 is a much better zoom range, and it shows in the images.

          • desmo

            it’s not the zoom range its the optics
            70-200 is a pro lens, pro price pro weight, pro optics
            70-300 LOL

            • flowgeek

              …the CA is the issue i worry the least about since i know it’s just a lens issue – it just popped into my eye as it’s actually worse than with my crappy 20mm f/2.8 nikkor – and the d7000 is actally able to even correct that in-camera… so why not the d7100?!?
              but the lens won’t affect the noise level…

            • Spy Black

              There’s a reason why the 70-200 is good and the 70-300 is bad, the extra range.

      • ashwins

        Regarding noise, I think flowgeek has a point. There’s surprisingly strong chroma noise in the shadows (for a ISO 200 image). Look at the shadows of the balconies and especially the 3-storied houses in the right upper corner.

      • Johnny Dough

        I dunno what you guys are talking about, I can see the woman but i can’t see her brassiere?

      • Manuela

        Actually, the seagull photo was taken with the 18-300, not 70-300

  • http://www.facebook.com/muganhorse Davidvictormeldrew Idontbeliev

    Not bad samples and at low isos 100 – 400 impressive images, however 1600 iso shot looks good and shoot-able but not outstanding – considering how many mp’s are being squeezed into dx sensor.

    • RC

      More megapixels does not = more noise. That is a myth. The D800 shatters it.

      • iamlucky13

        To state it a little more strictly, more megapixel does equal more visible noise, for the same viewing size. If you zoom in to 100%, you will see more pixel variation, but at equivalent sizes you should see comparable performance, with a couple minor nitpicks:

        1.) With more MP, the actual light-gathering area might be slightly smaller, because of the gaps between microlenses, and the ancillary, non-light gathering parts of the pixel.

        2.) The pixel level noise can skew the colors more towards grey/brown, even though sharpness is retained. However, Nikon seems to do a superb job of dealing with chroma effects on current bodies.

        • RC

          That may be theoretically true but I don’t usually view my images at 100% zoom.

    • http://Flickr.com/inthemist InTheMist

      The shadows are also being pushed by ADL. See the direction the sun is coming?
      Nikon only allows in-camera JPEGs for sample images. They’re very strict I’ve heard.

  • Jer

    I know this is off topic admin. But what do you think about Nikon extending the instant rebates on lenses and the price reductions on the D800/E. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    • http://nikonrumors.com/ Nikon Rumors

      I am not sure, I will ask around.

        Thanks for the reply Peter

    Interested why Nikon would be using flickr over Nikon Image Space…or whatever it’s called…

    • Jota

      I wonder why Flickr browsing is still so much great pain in the ass. WHY?!!!

    Where did they get a 38mm tilt/shift lens?

        They wouldn’t photoshop sample images.

  • Martin

    Well, as far as a DX sensor goes, this doesn’t appear to break any barriers but the output is very good. Having said that, with the amount of sunshine available, any sensor will do a good job.

  • brn

    Do sample images ever look bad?

    • http://Flickr.com/inthemist InTheMist

      You should look at the Leica forums! They let any rich idiot run around making snapping happy snaps that inevitably leak.

  • dan

    no one give a shit. let’s see how long it takes for the nikon community to find some horrible flaw that nikon will not admit to for this camera.

  • http://www.DumpThePicayune.com/ TPWatcher

    The question I would ask is whether these images are any better than those that could have been captured by the D7000. Unfortunately, we never get comparisons between the “latest and greatest” and the “earlier version of the same camera” with these “puff sites”.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=2217220 Adam Steenwyk

    I love how people are bitching about lack of high ISO or questionable photo practices with these images. These are by far the most real-world pre-production image samples provided by a camera maker that I’ve ever seen. Well done, Nikon!

    • Eric Calabos

      I love their bitching based on resized ADL-on jpeg, in flickr preview

        You can download the original …

        • Millzee

          Please could you give a link to the download of the RAW samples you mention. I can only find downloadable images on the Nikon site but I am clearly missing something elsewhere. Ta.

          • MJr

            You are not familiar with dpreview? That’s a first…
            http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-d5200/15

            • Millzee

              Thanks for that! … And, no, I am pleased to admit that I am not very familiar with dp review!! How foolish.

              I misunderstood MJr and thought that some studio RAWs of the 7100 had been published – but he was actually referring to the 5200 which he reckons are the same.
              Is that actually the case that it is the same sensor as 5200? Surely without the filter and with a different processing engine the results will look different?

              I’ve looked at the downloadable images on flickr which look great. I’d love to see some long exposures though – does anyone know if there are any published anywhere?
              Thanks

            • MJr

              With RAW there is no ‘processing’, otherwise it wouldn’t be RAW. The OLPF only has an effect on very fine detail, which is no dramatic difference. Even if it is a completely different sensor, the difference would be small. And whatever difference there is, can only be for the better. Nikon would claim it was a ‘completely different’ sensor just for leaving out the OLPF, so that doesn’t say much. The D5200 is all we have for now. Or Nikonrumors would let us know.

            • Millzee

              Thanks very much.
              Please could you explain about the benefts (or not) of the new Expeed processor. Nikon sales speak implies that there is a benefit with Expeed 3 in reducing noise (I initially assumed this meant Raw) – but I think you are saying that this is not the case and that the Expeed thingymajig only affect jpgs etc?

            • MJr

              RAW-data isn’t an image until it is decoded by software on your computer, which of course has the processing power of a thousand camera’s. A new expeed processor means exactly what it suggest, more processing power in-camera. Like a car with more horsepower. A good thing sure, but we can only wait for the reviews or to have one in our hands before we know exactly what they’ve done with it. It should at least handle the increase in Megapixels, and write everything away faster etc. and maybe nicer jpegs. It’s a logical and necessary step, but not that interesting really.

            • Millzee

              Thanks and understood

  • Megalow

    I hate to say it but there is much more noise in the portrait shot at 1600 ISO than in what my D7000 will produce at the same ISO. Not good… I am a huge fan of Nikon and my D7000, yet I have to be honest. I’m not confident in this new sensor. I shoot weddings in low light at 1600 quite frequently and my D7000 produces very usable images – unlike this D7100 portrait photo at 1600. I’m bummed.

    • Jon McGuffin

      Megalow, my gut reaction was the same but it’s important to remember the different resolution and once you resize to match D7000, the image quality appears to be pretty equal to me. I too have a D7000 and am on the pre-order list for the D7100.

      The smaller buffer was almost enough alone to keep me away, but should this new cam have poorer performance in low light, I would steer clear for sure. However, I don’t think that’ll be the case. I think we’re going to be looking at very similar performance here when we view apples to apples.

  • Tags

    If this camera can match the long exposure performance of my D90, I will be all over it. I’m not holding my breath though… Nikon’s latest DX offerings show much more noise during even several second exposures. Us landscape shooters don’t need full frame, we just need base iso performance. I’m in such a minority though I doubt camera manufacturers are going to really focus on who has the best long exposure performance

    • desmo

      it will exceed the long exposure performance of your D90,
      the devil is in the details, on this gen of sensors the noise doesn’t band like past digital, its simple grain, much more film like,
      the iso 1600 you see from this sensor a D600 can equal or exceed

      • Tags

        I hope you are right, the d3200 and d7000 produce noticeably more hot pixels than the d90. The d3200 was atrocious; I sold mine after I realized the extra pixels aren’t nearly as important to me as the fact that the d7000 and d3200 always need long exposure noise reduction, while the d90 does not for most situations. The d3200′s long exposure performance was similar to micro4/3 cameras, which is horrifying. I hope you are right! Otherwise I’m stuck in 2008 (which isn’t really a bad thing)

  • Peter

    Love tilt shift photos!

    • LesM

      Please see my earlier post. The two pics I think you are referring to are NOT taken with tilt/shift lenses. The Exif data shows them to be taken with 18-300mm and 16-85mm lenses. But instead of using Aperture or Shutter Priority, Exif shows those two pics as “Exposure program: not defined”. Do you know what that means, because I don’t?

      • jefferylewis

        probably edited to the ‘model’ setting or whatever it’s called in camera.

    I gave up on Photography and the industry standard of slowly milking our money and then repeating as often as necessary. slow upgrades new technology replacing old technology. etc. i found a solution to all the madness. I purchased a Plein Air easel and some paint. The easel will last for years and won’t need upgraded. But …..which paint company should I use?? which paint will make my painting look more professional?? Who will come out with a larger paintbrush to hold more pigment? who will come out with a smaller paintbrush that holds just as much pigment as a larger brush…ohhhh damn …my head is a gonna explode!!!!!!!!!!

    Even if it means showing my ignorance, I must ask this question….

    A couple of the pics (village with stream down the middle and the one with the trams) have “unusual” depth of field effects, while using “normal” lenses (18-300 and 16-85) and apertures (f/11 and f/10). Exif data does not, as someone has suggested, show use of tilt/shift lenses but, whereas most of the pics are shot using Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority, these two were shot using “Exposure program – not defined”.

    Can anyone educate me as to how this DoF effect is obtained?

      • LesM

        Hey KnightPhoto – Thanks for that. I’ve just been reading about that feature in the D3200 and I reckon you are right. An “interesting” effect, but I really can’t say that I like it.

        • MJr

          I’m glad, because it is murder to photography.

    • Aldo

      I didn’t know what it was either… was thinking post

  • Joshua

    Remember that Flickr processes the pictures so you have to click on the “View all sizes” option and look at the one labeled Original to get an accurate read on the original pic. If you have a Pro account, only the Original is unedited by Flickr’s picture destroyer. The previews and all the smaller sized photos have been eaten.

    It also looks like these pictures were edited with Capture NX so we don’t know exactly the extent of the edit and how that would effect noise, highlights, etc.

    In my opinion the quality of the 1600 iso images is insane for a 1200 dollar camera.

  • Captain Megaton

    There are some strange things going on here, and I don’t mean the stupid miniature effects. The one of the harbour cafe “Le France” (ah, Cassis!) is taken at ISO200 and in plain sunlight, but the near-shadow details are full of noise, while the deep shadows are pulled down to hard black.

    Maybe it’s the expanded DR mode, but those tone curves are freaking me out.

    Only negative comments here for the D7100, for my is a very good upgrade for the D7000. Please If you don´t have arguments, please go for another brand, really I’m tired to read every, and every, and every day desire comments about D400.

    • Dave

      This is a forum for everyone to discuss their opinion of what Nikon is trying to sell us for $1,200. All comments are welcome. If you think this is a good upgrade for the D7000, then you do not shoot in Continuous High in Raw mode.

    • Mac Rumors

      hmmm I think you have new release syndrome. Not every release is worth upgrading

  • Douglas Pavani

    So, this is a Jpeg shoot not a real converted raw

    • flowgeek

      nope…. if you look at the exif data those are raw images converted afterwards…

  • congo

    A lot of bitching again….suggest those people need a pro camera….so buy yourself a pro model and stop complaining about a consumer product…for the market it’s targetting on It’s good enough I suppose.

    There is just no pleasing some of you people is there?

    Great, but it doesn’t mean anybody will do the same with this camera. When are we going to realize, that it’s not just a question of gear, but how you handle it. For instance, a good photographer will make great shots even with a Nikon D40, hell, even in lomography.

  • peterw

    lovely how in an advanced-enthousiast-top-of-present-DX-model the option is availlable to fully cripple the image :)
    (I mean the quasi tilt mode).
    Does this mean Capture NX3 is also going to give us these crippling options? :)
    If the camera would have the right Android or IOS, one could use Photoshop to do the thing right :). Of course only if the screen on the back is wide gammut :).
    Why bother with expensive old fashioned things Eizo screens and Wacom tools if you can ruin your pictures directly when you take them… ;)

    • MJr

      Well i’m glad you’re still smiling at least.

      • peterw

        5 smileys is a bit overdone, you think?
        However, who wouldn’t smile:
        buying this camera you can spare some 1000 euro or more for a tilt/shift lens. Or, the other way you can save yourself a license of Photoshop and a good screen.
        It’s a bargain.
        Any car salesman can tell.
        (Don’t forget to buy a Nikon protective UV-filter and a camera cleaning set.)

  • BR

    Does anyone know why the depth of field is so tight both foreground and background on some of the photos like the train shoot at F:10, 38mm.?

    • peterw

      it’s not DOF, its magic
      this camera is magic
      some photographers pay 2000 dollar for a Nikkor TS lens to achieve an effect that allmost looks like this. almost.
      some photographers pay ten of thousands of dollars for large format camera’s with bellows to achieve things that no baby can tell from this.
      it comes with this brand new camera, so you don’t need any photoshop licence anymore.
      it’s for serious and advanced enthousiasm.
      (Don’t forget to mount your lens hood back-wards when taking pictures, the camera will fit better in your bag.)
      (sorry, I’m out of smiley’s)

  • Hemchandra

    I was gonna wait for this camera. But I took advantage of deal on Sony SLT-a57. Of course, they are different market cameras. Still I got the camera with 18-135mm lens for $799. I see better result in shadows with a57 with ISO400 vs ISO200 on this camera. Within the price of Nikon D7100 I could also buy 35mm prime and 5mm f/1.4 prime. Which is great. I am glade I did not wait for Nikon D7100. I expect upcoming Sony a78 to beat this camera.

  • http://www.facebook.com/dencio7 Denniz Futalan

    If you compare this to the d600 what do you think image quality? I mean the d5200 has a good detail on high iso. So whats the differ on the d7100 over the d600? Help me im still ignorant about the full frame.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=517026058 Dmitry Brodsky

    That ISO1600 image is poor, the hair texture is destroyed by JPEG’s noise, noise reduction and sharpening, and what disappointing that it can be seen not only at full 24MP size but also at 3.5MP size photo. I just hope it is JPEG issue, and NEFs are much better in terms of low light detail retantion

  • Jonthan

    This camera is certainly an incredible piece of equipment. It depends how much these images have been worked on though, as to whether or not the noise level is all that impressive. If it has been post process than this is no better than the D300, which although good, is not up to the imaginary D400 we all hope for. I really want to get a camera that is much like the D300 but with 2 stops better high iso performance. But that is for MY style of shooting and subject matter.
