The D7100 has been announced as having a release date of the 21st March. Looks like prices will start at £1099 for just the camera body. The key features / improvements over the D7000 include: 24.1MP DX format CMOS sensor, with no OLPF EXPEED 3 processing ISO 100-6400 standard, up to 25600 expanded Max 6 fps continuous shooting in DX mode, 7fps in 1.3X crop mode 51 point AF system, 15 sensors cross type 2016 pixel RGB metering sensor Spot white balance in live view mode 1080 60i/30p video recording, built-in stereo mic, mic jack and audio monitoring jack Pentaprism with 100% coverage and 0.94X magnification 3.2", 1.2m-dot LCD screen (640 x 480 X RGBW) Front and rear IR receivers Equivalent water and dust resistance to D800/D300S There is more info here.... http://www.digitalcameraworld.com/2013/02/21/nikon-d7100-price-specs-release-date-confirmed/ Personally, I'm a little bit disappointed as I was really hoping for a D400 with 8-9 fps burst, bigger buffer and similar handling to the D300s. Although there was talk of Nikon merging the pro DX line with the enthusiast line, that's not really what I wanted. It looks like there isn't really any place in Nikon's line up for a D400 now. It would be interesting to hear the opinions of others on this release.
