I've had this camera now since Christmas 2011 and it is truly the best camera upgrade I have ever taken. It is a joy to use, performs superbly in all light conditions for a camera with a cropped sensor, the build quality is great and I love the ergonomics of the camera body.If you're a keen enthusiast of photography, this is the camera you should seriously consider buying.
I've had my D7000 about five months now. If you're an enthusiastic amateur photographer, you'd be well advised to give this camera very, very serious consideration. I'll guarantee you'll be impressed well beyond your expectations.
The best Nikon DSLR ever?
Incredible DSLR. Very, very fast, 6fps, great colour, great exposure, great movie mode, works with all Nikon lenses, not too big or heavy. Amazing build quality. Has many pre-sets which are handy and tons of manual adjustments and buttons for speed. U1 and U2 user settings are great for storing your favourite settings. A great set-up from my beloved D40. Works superbly with 35mm f1.8 and 50mm f1.8 prime lenses. Lucky seven from Nikon, D70, D700 and now D7000. Stunning.
Lots for your money
I have had the D7000 for a few weeks now having previously had a D200. Build wise it is deffinately not a professional camera thats not to say it is flimsy far from it most of the body is metal which gives it a robust feel, but it doesnt have that bulky brick feel that generally equates to the pro shooter also its DX not FX which means a smaller CCD sensor to capture the image on.However as I am sure many of you have read it is being compared favourably in performance with camera's costing several hundred pounds more. The metering is excellent and so far I have not found a situation when the exposure is anything but spot on. There are enough controls to satisfy any photographers needs from full auto,scene select, through to the usual A,S,M modes and two very useful User defined modes all of which work well. A little thing I really like is the rear as well as the front IR sensor enabling me to use the infared remote from behind as well as infront of the camera. Video has full HD caperbility and the camera comes with a 3.5mm jack socket for fitting an external stereo as opposed to the mono built in mic. The full time AF in video mode is not my cup of tea and tends to hunt too much when pan shooting but for stills its quick and effective and the 3D tracking really does work well(very handy for fast moving objects)and if you are into that sort of thing you can pump out shots like a Tommy gun at 6 frames a secondImage quality as with all cameras still depends heavily on the lens fitted I use a 18-200VR which produced good sharp images and a 50mm 1.8 which in my opinion lets the D7000 really show its paces and a 30X40 enlargement still retains amazing clarity. The super high 12000-25000 ISO ratings are to my mind a gimmick and produce awfull images only suitable for facebook but up to ISO 3000 they are great and even ISO 6400 produces very acceptable picture quality.Overall this is a great little camera and although it may seem expensive in one camera Nikon have succeeded producing a unit that will take a person from complete novice point and shoot starter right through to top line club/exhibition photographer without the constant upgrading that works out a heck of alot dearer.
