I’m tired of wait­ing for the D400! Should I get a D7100 or a V3?

Chris says… You say you want some­thing fast and light, which can shoot at seven frames per sec­ond, and uses your ex­ist­ing lenses. The D7100 shoots at six frames per sec­ond and doesn’t have a very im­pres­sive buf­fer. The Nikon 1 V3 can shoot at 20 frames per sec­ond, and is much lighter than a D-SLR. How­ever, to use your lenses with it you will need an FT-1 adap­tor (£199/$240). Given the 2.7x crop fac­tor of the V3, I think it ticks all the boxes, though the new crop fac­tor and dif­fer­ent con­trols may take a bit of get­ting used to.

Rus­sell wants to re­place his D300 for wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy – but which light­weight op­tion will be most suit­able?
