According to Digital Photography Review, The D7100 is the first Nikon DSLR to do away with an optical low-pass filter (OLFP), with higher resolution than the usual filtered 24 Megapixel sensors found in the D5200 and D3200. It also has a slightly larger 3.2-inch 1.2M dot rear LCD that features an RGBW display than the D7000.

Some of the features include a 24.1 MP DX format CMOS sensor, EXPEED 3 processing, Max 6 fps continuous shooting in DX mode, where it is 7fps in 1.3X crop mode, 1080 60i/3p video recording, built-in stereo mic, pentaprism with 100% coverage and .04X magnification, a 3.2-inch and 1.2m-dot LCD screen, front and rear IR receivers and equivalent water and dust resistance to the D800/D300S. It also weighs 765g, so it is relatively light as well.

The latest model of the DX-format DSLR has 24.2 megapixels, a DX-format CMOS sensor with no optical low-pass filter, built-in Wi-Fi capabilities, a built-in GPS, a durable light body, a 3.2-inch 1037k-dot vari-angle LCCD monitor with wide viewing angle, NAL-1 features for zoom/focus assist, and more.
It also has a full-HD 1920x1080/60p capability for movies, where selection can range from 24, 25, 30,50, and 60p. There are also 9 special effects for creative expression.
As previously reported, Nikon Rumors reports that the Nikon D5300 is expected to be introduced before the Photo Plus show in NYC at the end of the month or the CES show in Las Vegas in January.
It is reported that this will be the first camera to get the new EXPEED 4 processor. Some other rumored specs include 24 Megapixels, 39 AF points, built-in Wi-Fi and built-in GPS.
Photography Bay reports that the D530 will be introduced as an entry-level APS-C format camera. There are no reports yet of whether or not it will have better image quality over the D5200, but it would make sense to add additional video features to the D5300.
The price is $799 for the body only, where it is available in black, red, and a Nikon gray finish.
