In a few weeks time, i'm looking at trying to upgrade to a higher spec Nikon Body (currently using the D3100 with a 55-300mm Nikor lens) Just wondering what peoples thoughts and experiences with the D7100 are? Haven't seen to many shots with it, so just wondering how good the image clarity etc is?

Quoting megatop412 (Reply 5): Guys, WTF. He's asking about the D7100, not hear the old 'upgrade glass first' debate.
Same old replies, yes glass is more important than body, but body to body also makes difference(otherwise guys buying higher end bodies must be stupid as per some of the posters, who themselves may be using expensive cameras).
I don't buy cameras for this site, for this site even a point and shoot could work.
Coming to D7100,
the D7100 has the af motor, cls system, two control dials, far superior AF system, better sensor, AF fine tune compared to an entry level D3100, also better body construction and weather sealing.

Nikon 55-300mm is a DX lens. It is designed for Nikon DX (cropped sensor) cameras like your D3100. D600 is an FX camera. It needs FX lenses like Nikon AF-S 70-300mm. yes we can use DX lenses on FX cameras. However, like TristarAtLCA said, the images produced will be dark around the corners.
