Well I had a great weekend taking pics with the D7100 and 300mm f4. So far I am really happy with the combo and have been getting some decent pics. Here is just a preview of some of the pics I will be posting this week as I edit through the rest of them. Enjoy. CC always welcomed. Thanks for looking!!!

I'm curious what setting you have for the in-camera sharpening, and if you add sharpening during post?
Sure wish I had a 300.
Thanks! I have the camera set to 7 in the in camera settings and I add some in LR4 if I need to. Most of the time they are plenty sharp. The 300 sure is sweet for the price. I don't have any complains about it so far.
Care to comment on the D7100? Particularly: file size, buffer, burst rate and write speed.
So far I am really liking the 7100. I have had it for 2 weeks this Friday and I have put close to 2000 clicks on it so far. I am coming from a D300 so that is what I am comparing it to. The AF seems to be better on the 7100 and image quality blows the D300 away. The file sizes are about 12-14mb shooting in JPEG large and fine. I get 6 fps in continuous high and am using the sandisk 95mb/s card so the write speed is fast and it has no problem clearing the buffer. I haven't tried it in raw so I can't comment on that. So far no complaints from me.
