yes, its 1898.. for some weird reason.
Good choice! The nikon 7100 is what i run with to. I use a Nikon 35mm-70mm push pull f/2.8. As well as a 60mm macro nikon. Shooting static objects in good lighting one does not need a tripod. The shutter speed will not be low enough to need to be stationary. Only if it is below your focal length to cause a problem. Shooting the night sky .. yea you are going to need a tripod.This was hand-held with a Nikon D7100+Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8
