    I promised her a trip to Bavaria in the German Alps, Joe! We are going for our wedding anniversary, and also the Christmas markets will be on - So I "Need" the better camera to capture the holiday!

    It is an expensive way of getting a new camera, but worth it!!

    I'd stow away in your luggage but at 350lbs it'd be too expensive, have a great time!!!

    Congratulations. Don't forget to read grandpaw's D7000 tips (Nikon D7000 tips). Most can be applied to the D7100.

    I picked up my D7100 two weeks ago and shortly after Darrell Young's D7100 book on my phone. I'm going to second the suggestion to get it. I'm slowly making my way through it, but so far I can say that he gets very in-depth into the functions of the camera and still keeps it easy to follow. You start to see all the potential this camera has right from the start. It's full of information and one of the things I liked a lot, which BackdoorHippie mentioned, is that the author puts recommendations in there for how you could use certain settings. Obviously everyone is different but it's something I found useful.
