    Nikon made a mistake in the numbering scheme. It should have been called the D5700, as it is more of an upgrade to the D5xxx series. It is NOT a linear upgrade in the D7xxx series.

    For the most part you should forget the camera even has that pop-up flash, unless using it for Commander mode. For under $100 you can use a real flash head.

    swing and miss. I'd much rather have a D7200. But I don't think would upgrade from a D7100 for it.

    Yes. That is my opinion, bolstered by some others with the same opinion.

    Aside from the built-in flash not working, is there any other reason you thought about changing bodies?

    yes the camera seems to be somewhat blurry alot .. something else the camera store will check for me.. if there are these issues.. i would rather get a new one.. if it is just the flash issue i can get the attachment and keep going.. because over ALL love the D7100.. and if it is not a real upgrade then it is senseless to spend all that money.. so i do appreciate your help

    The D7200 IS better. But what you're really getting is the Sony sensor & EXPEED 4 over the Toshiba & 3 (so better IQ and ISO handling), and the increased buffer size. It's supposed to have better AF in low-light and built in wifi. Otherwise it's basically the same camera.

    the D7500 is a downgrade IMHO because of some of the choices they made:

    I liked the 24mp sensor, I haven't been to much of a fan of the 20MP one in the D500 and D7500.
    Dual to Single SD slot. BOO HISS. This makes it less top-of-line and more average -- such a weird choice.

    There are good improvements to the AF module and buffer and FPS is you need that. I don't care about shooting 4k, or a touchscreen, so a lot of improvements are a waste on me.

    On paper the d7200 is a very minor upgrade to the d7100.

    In real life it is faster to focus, gets focus in darker light, has a better buffer and nicer, less noticeable noise at higher iso levels.

    In real life I found the d7200 to be a very worthwhile upgrade to the d7100
