Yes, back to that again **sigh**
Sorry, but this is a noticeable investment for me, and I get one shot at it: I'd prefer the D7100 for all sorts of conceptual reasons, but something sticks in my craw: with equal glass, wouldn't the lo-pass filterless D5300 produce images equal to the D7100, particularly considering the EXPEED 4 factor? And with an articulating screen? And onboard Wifi/GPS? Oh, and at a couple/three hundred dollars less?
