Nikon D7100 Shipping Today + Instant Rebate

For those who have pre-ordered the Nikon D7100, B&H is now shipping D7100 units from their store as of today. I am being told that orders are getting fulfilled and so far the stock looks good. Looks like Nikon did a much better job with availability with the D7100 compared to the D800. At the same time, Nikon has announced a $100 instant rebate on the Nikon D7100 + 18-105mm lens kit. This goes on top of the existing instant rebates on Nikon lenses that were extended till the end of March.

Nikon D7100 Front

As of now, all items ship free from B&H and you also qualify for a 2% B&H reward. Forty days after purchase, the rewards points will convert into a promotional code that you will be able to use towards any purchase at B&H (the promotional code must be used within six months). Remember, all instant rebates, including the $100 D7100 kit rebate will expire on March 30.

For our UK readers – as of today Nikon is offering up to £150 in cashback on select DSLRs.

A quick update on our upcoming reviews. Here is what we will be working on during the next couple of weeks:

  1. Nikon D3200 Review
  2. Nikon D5200 Review
  3. Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Review
  4. Nikon D7100 Review
  5. Nikon D4 Review (I know, I am very late)
  6. A bunch of other pending Sigma, Tamron and Nikon lens reviews

Once I am done with the above list, I am hoping to work on the second batch of mirrorless cameras (Fuji X100s, Fuji X-E1, Nikon 1 V2, Panasonic GH3, etc).

It will be a busy year for us at Photography Life, so stay tuned!

    Great that a test review about D3200 and D5200 is coming. It’s good that also cheaper cameras are covered at

    What is about the MTF-chart article; is it coming soon as well or is it postboned to summer?

    Just got the email from B&H, my order for the D7100 has been shipped. Anxious to see this camera. I am upgrading from the D80, which I received from my late brother.

    Hi Nasim,

    Expecting your review on comparing the Nikon P Series and Canon Power Shot. Have seen some good output on Canon Power Shot. Even Though I am a Nikon fan and stick to it for many many years. But when going for a fixed lens camera, I would like to see the review of other brand cameras.

    Nasim, I just saw a news brief about the Tamron SP 24-70 F2.8 DI VC USD in American Photo magazine. It way be worthy of a review. I’d love to see comparison to the Nikon 24-70 too. Thank you for all you do for us. It’s truly a pleasure to see and read your posts in my in-box.

      Nasim has already done that – check out his gear review page. The lens is a stellar and definite buy

        Thanks Arpit. Somehow I missed it when I searched the site before posting. I’ll definitely check it out.

    Would love to see your review on new Sigma 30mm 1.4 DC HSM lens – it should hit the street in a couple of weeks. I have been thinking about having a general purpose lens like Nikkor 35 mm 1.8g (on my DX body, D7100 is on it’s way) but this Sigma also looks good (although more than x2 expensive than Nikkor).

    I just got my back-ordered Nikkor 85 1.8g from B&H today.

    It’s paired up with my D7000 and the early returns suggest I’m going to have a lot of fun with that lens.

    Hi Nasim,
    I am an avid reader of your site and an amateur photographer. As all newbies do hit a wall and outgrow their kit lenses I too have outgrown the kit lens. I own a D90 and 18-105 kit lens. I have aspired alot to click landscapes and have been going through various sites reading the techniques and equipments to use in landscape photography. Yours was the best I came across and have bookmarked it ever since. I have read many of your articles and lens reviews. I was basically looking for a lens review which was not from an OEM of the likes of Nikon or Canon. Their are certain lenses from tokina which qualify for the ultrawide category. I on every one else’s behalf would request you to do reviews on tokina lenses ( esp. 11-16 f/2.8 and 17-35 f/4.0) . I too have been mired with the marketing strategy nikon has taken up with costly equipments and quality control. It’s been time the Non OEMs given certain importance so that OEMs have a competition to address. Once they would see a loss in the market share they would definitely listen to the consumer.
    In the end I would request you to include articles and reviews on best lenses from the Non OEM vendors of the lenses.

    High regards

    Just an interesting observation: To date I have heard NO complaints about the D7100. No Autofocus issues, no dust or oil spot issues, etc. Perhaps Nikon finally got it right after the recent problems with the D4, D800 and D600.
