It also has HDR in-camera under a sub-menu to the Backlighting Scene mode

According to my manual sensor is 1/1,7 you have it as 1/1.8. I Like the 28-200mm equivalant lens and built in ND filter and all the manual controls.

According to Nikon, the weight of the 7100 is 395 grams, i.e. 45 grams heavier or 13% heavier than the Fujifilm x10.
