Are there specific things you find limit you about your D3100?

What setting is the D7000 best used on for spotting? The help is very well appreciated.
|Quoting darreno1 (Reply 7):|
There really is no 'one' setting. It depends on the subject, the equipment (lens) and the environment. On sunny days, I tend to stay somewhere around F10 aperture with the shutter at 1/1000 (ISO 200) in manual mode. But that could change as the light changes. Late in the day, I tend to up the ISO to 400 with the same shutter, or drop the shutter a little if I the ISO is kept the same. For me, it mostly depends on what the histogram is saying.
I'm not as worried underexposing as overexposing and blowing the highlights. As I shoot raw only, all it takes is a little Camera Raw or Photoshop magic to fix a dark pic. Overexposed shots, on the other hand, are much more of a challenge, sometimes impossible to recover.
If I'm using Aperture Priority, on bright days I tend to use between 0.7 -1.0 negative compensation with an aperture ranging from f8-f11 (ISO 200). Again, it mostly depends on the histogram, but also, on what shutter speed range I'm looking for.

I dont know how big your hands are, but I found the body just too small so I had to purchase the MB-D11 grip to have somewhere to rest my little finger.

I would appreciate some more comments from anyone who has had experience with the D7000 or D7100.
Is the D7100 worth the extra money?
|Quoting iamlucky13 (Reply 9):|
It's not worth it for those who already have the D7000, but since you don't, unless the price difference is an issue for you, I would say go for it. The D7100 can autofocus in lower light, or with certain lens+teleconverter combos that the D7000 can not.
