Summary: This camera is a great buy. There are so many functions that it is going to take a little of practice to fine tune my ablities, since I am retired this is the camera for me. I have taken action shots and the clarity is without comparison. I would recommend an online course since it will get you up and taking pictures in the manual mode quicker.
Excerpt: Saved a good amount of money getting a Refurbished body. I had the Nikon D80 and upgraded to the D7000 and couldn't be happier. Just got this 2 weeks ago so I'm still figuring things out especially focusing. So far so good.
Excerpt: This camera is AMAZING! I am a student photographer and updated my D40 to this one and have absolutely NO regrets! I wanted a camera that I could take complete control of (Manual all the way) and this camera offers amazing control. And also has an awesome Auto setting as well. I take a lot of nature photographs, group pictures, portraits, and family pictures. All of them have come out crisp and well exposed! Be prepared to refer to the manual!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I upgraded to this camera body after having a d40 for the past 5 years. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase. Its been great for taking picutures of my two young and very active children. Its ISO performace in low light situations is wonderful.
