April 3, 2013, Adobe releases updates for its popular image editing programs Adobe Lightroom 4 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 to support the latest digital cameras including the Nikon D7100. The updated versions of Lightroom 4.4 and Adobe Photoshop with Adobe Camera Raw 7.4 are now able to open and edit Nikon Electronic Format (.NEF) RAW camera files taken with the Nikon D7100 DSLR. Users of previous versions of these and other programs can use the DNG Converter version 7.4 to convert D7100 RAW .NEF files to Adobe Digital Negative Gallery (.DNG) format.
The updates also include new lens profile data for recently released lenses including the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR, SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM for Nikon mount and TAMRON SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC and TAMRON SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO for Nikon mount.

Wildlife photographer Moose Peterson was selected by Nikon to create sample images for the launch of the Nikon D7100. In January, he spent two weeks in Costa Rica using the new D7100 and shot over 13,000 images as well as video. He shares some of the images on his blog. And he recounts a scary experience falling off a cliff.
Peterson expresses his pleasure using the D7100 camera, concluding it is a “gotta have.” He used several Nikon lenses such as the AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f2.8G, 500mm f/4G ED VR, 10.5mm f/2.8 ED DX fisheye, and the recently released 70-200mm f/4G VR along with 2X teleconverter TC-20e3.
