Just ordered a D7000.

I know the D7100 will have a slightly better screen, slightly better autofocus system,
slightly better weatherproofing, slightly better low light exposure (-2EV) and higher MP count.
With a DX sized sensor, 24MP sans OLPF seems overkill, as 16.2 mp will already give
resolution in excess of what almost any lens can deliver. On FX, 24 or 36 MP would be welcome.

However, I can barely afford the D7000, and couldn't justify the extra $300 for the D7100.

I don't really want the extra 1.3x crop mode, the 2-exposure auto HDR mode (if you're
gonna do HDR, might as well do it right), the WiFi, the faster video speed, and the larger
file sizes.

I can't wait to see how much better it is than my current D3100.

If I had the extra bucks or wanted the new features bad enough, then the D7100 does
look very, very good, ... just not for me.

Hey guys: question. I'm looking for an old Nikon lens that will give some cool antique effects. Something prime and not too expensive, and something that will work on a newer digital DX camera D5100, D7100, etc). Anyone have any thoughts?

Explain what you are thinking/after here? Not sure I follow...

This fell into my bag as my point & shoot:

Nice little box. Shot some video with it for the kids' Sunday School stuff, works really well - beyond expectations even. Need to take it to the studio and do some controlled shots to see how it does with stills.

I may be looking for something that is not possible. I have heard of photographers using very (very) old lenses with newer cameras that will give the photos a very antique effect, a yellowing, or things like of that nature. Softer images, etc. I wish I had the examples I found the other day but I'm not sure where I had found them.

A setup like this:

Again, I may be looking for something that is not possible. Maybe the effects were added post-production, in photoshop, etc. I am shooting with a D5100 and D7100, so I'm looking for mostly nikkor lenses (I haven't really used a sigma or a tamron yet)

Okay - that's what I thought you were inferring.

Working within the limits of a manual lens can produce neat visually distorted images with soft focus or similar anomalies. However, short of the lens degrading (coatings, mold, etc.) or having distortion from the elements (weird light flex), any coloring would typically be a post processing addition.

Specific to the world of Nikon, here is a guide to what lenses work (or don't) on the newer DSLR bodies. Read up there, and that will help you chase older glass for the new DSLR bodies. IMHO/experience you won't find much in the way of vintage Sigma or Tamron lenses worth tinkering with...

As an alternative, you could look at picking up a LensBaby or keep an eye on the Lynny projects. Both can make neat images, but the LensBaby is more readily available and less of a project dealio.

My D7100 came, with a new 50mm f/1.4 lens. The pictures are amazing.. The quality is ridiculous.

Thank you for this Drew.
