I have a Nikon D7100. Is the Nikon 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-P DX lens compatible with this body?
Are there images made with this lens & body combination available?

You can find which lenses are compatible with your Nikon camera on the Nikon Lens page: Nikon D7100
Finding images made with a particular lens can be challenging. I suggest you look at Flickr, on their Camera pages as a start. From here you can examine images made with this camera, and search for tags or focal length to help narrow down to the particular lens. I don't see a way to search the EXIF directly unfortunately.
According to this obscure compatibility list from Nikon USA, the D7100 has Limited Compatibility with AF-P lenses. The D7100 may require a firmware update if it is not already using the latest firmware version for that camera.
What limited compatibility means for the D7100 is:
All AF-P lenses have "focus-by-wire" focusing, even when using "manual" focusing. The focus ring is not mechanically connected to the lens' focus mechanism. Instead the focus ring is an electronic switch that sends a signal to the camera which, in turn, sends a signal to the lens' AF motor to move the lens by an amount determined by how far you have moved the focus ring.
From Thom Hogan's review of the AF-P DX Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-6.3G ED VR:
The current list of full compatibility is D500, D3300, D3400, D5300, and D5500 (but make sure that you’re using the latest firmware). The following cameras have no way to set VR and may change focus position if the camera’s meter goes inactive (requiring you to re-obtain focus): Df, D5200, D7100, D7200, D750, and D810. All other Nikon DSLRs should be considered completely incompatible with this lens. Further note that this is a fly-by-wire lens, so while it may appear to mount on those other Nikon DSLRs, you can’t focus the lens manually, thus the incompatibility warning.
Searching Flickr for "D7100 18-55mm AF-P" only returns four photos and one video. Two of the stills are pictures of the lens, not taken with the lens. A third is a two side-by-side shots. The left half was taken at 34mm and the right half was taken at 23mm with the Nikkor AF-P 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR using a D7100.
Based on the EXIF info combined with an "AF-P" tag, this image appears to have been taken with the combination in which you are interested.
The description of this video indicates it was shot using a D7100 and Nikkor AF-P 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 VR lens.
