So basically, they are the same exact camera. One is $2,000 more.

There is no mention of the build quality of the D700, it is a professional grade camera the D7100 is for enthusiasts
(no where near the same thing).

It's extended to 7 fps when in a 1.3x crop mode.

The D7100 has only 6fps according to the technical specs on Nikon site!!! Not 7fps, as it is shown here...
