Does it all with Nikon quality

The Nikon D7100 package with two lenses (18-140, 55-300) also includes a battery and charger, memory card (32gb), manual (a real, printed one… shocker), a mildly informative though decidedly pointed towards novice photogs DVD on shooting pictures and videos with Nikon cameras (which uses the D5300 in most examples), case, strap, etc. All in all a grouping of useful items, great to get you going if you aren't coming from an already stocked arsenal of digital photography equipment. It suited my needs.Suggestion #1: (I will add several of these) If you happen to possess some decent Nikon lenses suited to the DX format, just buy the body. The included lenses are good, but this camera and a simple 35mm 1.8 lens will take you a long way. Let me begin by saying that the online purchase and shipping from B&H Photo was simple and efficient. I spent a ton of time researching, so I already knew what I was looking for, and getting it headed my way was pretty straightforward. Because of the complete selection, ease of getting help, and dependable shipping, B&H is as risk-free as a purchase can get. On that note:Suggestion #2: Buy only from an authorized Nikon dealer. Grey market stuff is everywhere, especially @, and you don't have a prayer of getting service in the US if you need it. Many Nikon shops won't touch grey market items even at your cost, so you're on your own if you shop with non-dealers. For those who don't know, "Import" next to the name can be translated as "No warranty in the US." Although all Nikons are imports, only those that are imported through Nikon's recognized dealer network, verified by serial number, are covered by manufacturer warranty. You've been warned...A brief personal background to help understand my motivations: At one time I was quite the enthusiast on 35mm, having moderate local success and getting several photos in print. I didn't do much creative photography for many years, but my employment in law enforcement provided lots of opportunity for documentary photos. My real skills with a camera were not much in use here, mostly full auto shooting. A trip to the FBI National Academy re-awakened interest, having taken a course in Evidentiary Photography using Nikon D300s while there. When I was ready to jump back into photography, I did a ton of research, which lead me to the Canon 70D or Nikon D7100 as the best choices, and the Nikon likely won out on the strength of familiarity, as they are pretty much neck and neck as competitors. I favored the Nikon's image quality overall, but was never sure if that was a result of the camera, or the photographer skill. Either way, D7100 it was.The camera arrived safely and was quickly assembled. One of my "have to have" options was the ability to shoot fully automatically, fully manually, or variations in between… all well covered here. One thing I have come to appreciate as I am re-learning the craft is the semi-auto priority modes that set the aperture or shutter based on your input. You don't have to accept it, but it is very educational to see what the camera computer suggests to balance your settings. In other words, when you know what you want, say, in the way of aperture but aren't sure of shutter speed to make it work, you can get the camera's suggestion as a base point. In several tests, the camera's settings were pretty much spot on.I'm not a huge video guy, but did some tests for image stability and sound quality. Both were surprisingly good, especially so considering I was hand holding the camera. And the option for a stereo mic input is going to be a real quality booster on interviews. Nice work there. I also noticed an HDMI out, which is a great option for those who have a video recorder to record to, such as is the case in an interview room.The lenses in every setting were reliable in auto focus, accurate in manual focus, and very easy to handle. That brings up another good point: ergonomically, this camera and its lenses just feel good in the hand. Every time you want to adjust something the proper control always seems to be near an available finger. The more I learn, the easier it gets. There was considerable buzz about difficulty in making adjustments in the "internet expert" community, which I just didn;t find to be true. Which brings me to:Suggestion #2: Take all internet videos with a huge grain of salt. If a video starts with "some friends asked me to do a video about…" you can translate that as "I wanted to give you my personal, unsolicited, and often unsubstantiated/uneducated opinion on…" Many are thinly veiled fan-forums, especially comparisons. Glean what you can, leave the rest, rely on recognized professional reviews if you can find them… it's what the others are plagiarizing anyway. The capacities of the SD cards are amazing. When I saw the size of the default JPEG (6000x4000) I figured I would run out of the 32gb card quickly, until I checked… 4K available. That's 4000. I plugged in a 64gb card and, yep… 8100 available. Astonishing. Even if you go to RAW images, there's still a ton of room. I would have gone broke in the 35mm days to even think of shooting 1000 images at an event, and now it's a non-concern. Got to love technology.The one minus, and the only advantage the Canon 70D had in my opinion, was the swivel LCD. The Nikon's LCD is both larger and clearer, so it was a worthwhile trade, but I could see a few places a swing out unit could be useful. The Nikon LCD on a similarly executed swivel would be a killer add.In summary, it's a monster of a camera. I may go full frame on day if my skill ever warrants it but I honestly can't see a need at this point. I will add a 35mm prime, probably a good macro, and a flash and that will keep me busy for a long while. Very happy with the purchase.

    Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses Kit:

    I own a Nikon D90 camera for some years now. I decided to update my gear when I saw this deal. So far It seems to be working as advertised.
    There was a minor problem with the wireless remote that comes with the kit, but it's easily solved by putting your phone in airplane mode.
    I'm a wedding photographer/videographer and according to what I've seen so far, this will be a great asset.

      I bought this camera as a gift to my wife but I will use it as mine because the image quality is great and the body is light and small. I will use my 2 D800 just for work. I love the 18-140 since the first time I used it; now it is my all day lens.

        Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses Kit:

        My previous camera was a Nikon D80 and I decided last year that it was time to upgrade. Some of the settings are a little bit different than my D80 so I have had to adjust to that, but with new features like video, less grain at higher ISOs for low light, and wifi I'm really happy with this upgrade.

        I also am happy with the two new lenses in this kit, because they have helped me bridge the gap between some of my other lenses with a wider zoom range that makes them flexible for all sorts of shooting situations.

        It was time to buy a second camera and the Nikon D7100 seemed to fit the bill for my needs. I had researched several options and currently own a D5100 and new I wanted more features and a camera that leaned toward the professional capiabilties but with a reasonable price. The D7100 and camrea kit has been a great purchase that produces excellent photographs.

          I recently upgraded from a point-and-shoot to this D7100. The learning curve has been steep (unless you use the auto modes, which I'm determined not to do). I've been trying to improve my photography skills to better take advantage of all of its features. The picture quality is amazing, and I'm looking forward to getting cleaner pictures when lighting isn't the best. Highly recommend!

            Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses Kit:

            Camera gives easy access and shortcuts to a lot of needed functions when shooting in any Priority mode or Manual. Able to change through a few WB profiles with a bit of Amber/Blue adjustment (+/- 6). Change Focusing type from Single to Continuous and its variable modes of Continuous Single to Dynamic 51. Has 2 SD Card slots for redundancy or extra capacity or RAW-JPG split. Kit Lens are a good way to start for those who already want to shoot and can't afford the glass yet, or for those who don't need the extra capability in quality glass. Shooting in Manual with these glass has a bit of limitation, that's a given since the Aperture changes as you zoom. But being able to cover an 18mm to 300mm range to those who do not have any lenses is a good way to start. Photos are still usable at ISO 6400 in print.

              I went from a D80 to a D7100, both great products, but the upgrade is so worth it. I love to take photos and with what is out there with taking photos to another level with either picking a certain color (rest B/W) to having it look like a drawing - this was the best gift I could have received from my husband. Photo and Art - both in one camera!!!

                Comments about Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera with 18-140mm and 55-300mm Lenses Kit:

                Larger and heavier than I expected, but build quality and picture quality are excellent. I got away from slr cameras when digital first came out 20 years ago, but now I'm back. This camera gives you full control over your picture taking. Great for the photography buff.

                      The Nikon d7100 package is a good deal. The camera has lots of great features. The levees perform as well as can be expected for kit lenses. Nikon glass quality is great even at the hobbyist level.

                        I switched from another brand because this kit was such a good deal. I've been very pleased with the quality of the camera and its features--it's everything I hoped it would be.

                            and if I talk about all the bad changes would talk a lot.
                            18x140 The lens does not come with a protective cover and not with parasol.
                            explanatory dvd a D3200
                            the camera is a D7100 as you can?

                            The kit offered by Nikon and the buying experience at B & H were great. The Nikon D7100 is a great piece of equipment. Lots of flexibility and the shots are fantastic. All the different pieces of equipment which came in the kit were well worth the price along with the flexibility of using all the different components

                            Pretty awesome camera. The amount of functions available can be intimidating. But reading or skimming through the manual is so worth it and pretty easy.

                            I really wasn't a fan of the DVD that came with the camera, if you have photographed for a while nothing in it should be a surprise.

                            The wireless transmitter is a pretty cool little device and is worth it.

                            I mainly use the 18-140 mm lens and it's phenomenal. Although I don't use the telephoto as much, its nice to know I have it if I ever need it.

                            The bag is pretty nice and holds the camera equipment but I filled up the front pouch pretty quickly with cables, remotes, etc.
