What are the differences between the D7000 and D7100. I was looking to buy the D7100 and I found an amazing deal on the D7000! So what are the main differences? Which do I buy?

Well, the most obvious one is 24mp vs 16mp. This is a real difference but can only be realized with the best glass. I doubt the 18-105, that is pretty much standard issue, can take advantage of the mp differences. However primes like the 35mm 1.8, 50mm 1.8 80mm 1.8 and macro lenses should show you a real difference. The other differences are in the number of focus points and some other minor improvements. I have the D7000 and love it and I don't think the D7100 is enough of an upgrade for me to jump however, if I didn't already have a D7000, I would go for the D7100. (jmho)

Another thing about the D7100 that is bugging me! Its the file sizes! I want to know how large the files are as it may eat up space on my SD Card and computer! How large are the File sizes? I would like to know the RAW file sizes. How large are they?

I found an awesome deal on the web! I can get all the 3 lenses and the D7000 for $1833
I can get D7100 and the same 3 lenses for $2148

There is a $300 difference between the 2! And thats alot of money!
The disadvantage that i found with the D7100 is that i found out that if you shoot 14bit RAW, i get only 5fps continuous shooting and the buffer is 6frames.
The D7000 can shoot 6fps 14bit RAW with a buffer of 10frames!

If i need the 6fps on the D7100 (i do) then i will have to shoot 12bit RAW. What is the difference between 12bit and 14bit RAW?

2-bits.

You will not be able to see any difference between a 12-bit Raw and a 14-bit Raw.
All right! Lets say i shoot 12bit RAW and get the D7100.

There is still the D7000 with all lenses for 1.8K. The Diff. is $300. Is the D7100 worth it?

I can get a Nikon D7000 NEW for $620 and a D7100 NEW for $935

Yes, the D7100 is worth it. The better auto focus module in the D7100 alone is worth the extra $300.

Concentrate on the camera features that matter the most, like which auto focus module each has.

What are the other advantages?

If you were upgrading from the D7000 than I would say no unless money isn't an object for you. I recommend double jumping when upgrading bodies like from a D90 to D7100 ...... If not then there is no choice imho as the D7100 is a better camera all around unless again price is a deciding factor -Buy the best you could afford is my opinion and stop worrying about comparing features for I assure you Nikon didn't step backwards when they released the D7100 2 years or so after the D7000 release.! Many great photographs were taken with cameras far less than the D7000 or D7100 so don't expect to be taking better photos -your inabilities will show clearly in 24mp :)

The lock on the mode dial would be good, it's very easy to nudge the dial out of position on the D7000.

So get more and/or bigger sd cards.
