DxOMark rates the Nikon D7100 as the second best APS-C DSLR

The DxO Labs team has put to test the recently-introduced Nikon D7100, in order to see how good its new sensor really is, according to DxOMark standards.

DxO Labs has published the results of the Nikon D7100 DxOMark test. The latest DSLR camera from the Japanese company did not fare as great as some people would have expected, as the D5200 is slightly better than its newer sibling.

Nikon D7100 review by DxOMark
Nikon D7100 comes packed with a 24.1-megapixel APS-C image sensor without an optical low-pass filter.

Nikon D7100 does not have an anti-aliasing filter

The Nikon D7100 is packed in a similar design to the one found in its predecessor, the D7000. However, it suffered drastic changes on the inside, as it features a new 24.1-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor, which does not have an anti-aliasing filter.

This is a situation similar to another Nikon DSLR, the D800E, a camera which also does not employ an optical low-pass filter. Although the image quality increases, the lack of an AA filter will make photos to end up with moiré effects.

Nikon D7100 vs D5200 comparison
Nikon D5200 has remained the best APS-C DSLR camera, while the D7100 comes second with an overall score of 83.

Nikon D7100 receives DxOMark rating

According to the DxOMark review, the Nikon D7100 managed to achieve an overall score of 83. The DSLR hit a color depth rating of 24.2 bits and a dynamic range score of 13.7 Evs. However, it did not fare well for sports and low-light ISO, as it received a rating of only 1256 ISO.

Its overall score of 83 is enough to put the camera in second place in the APS-C image sensors category. The only camera to achieve a higher rating is the Nikon D5200, which is several hundred dollars cheaper than its bigger sibling, but managed to score 84 in DxOMark’s tests.

Better than its APS-C DSLR predecessor

It is worth reminding that the Nikon D7000 scored an overall rating of 80. DxO Labs’ engineers claim that the D7100 is a “worthy replacement” and that it does provide improved image quality in the world of APS-C sensors.

Its performance is said to be pretty good for a camera which costs a little over $1,000 therefore consumers looking to purchase a new DSLR should give the D7100 a closer look.

The Nikon D7100 (body-only) is available at Amazon for $1,196.95, while the D5200 costs merely $796.95.
