Here's both a written as well as a video review of my camera, the Nikon D7100. I waited a long time for Nikon to finally get all the features I was interested in packaged inside one very nice DSLR. For serious amateurs who don't want to pay those hefty prices for an FX camera, I don't think you can find a better camera on the market today. I can't imagine Nikon making a nicer or better DX camera at any price. However, I'm sure they will one day but until then I think this is the best camera on the market.
A nice written review by Ken Rockwell can be found at this location. Or you can see a video review below.
I am an amateur photographer and I have been actively taking photographs most of my life. My primary camera is the Nikon D7100 with an 18-135 mm lens attached, but I'm also known to use other lenses as well as the camera on my iPhone 5.
