Excerpt: I bought Nikon D5000 few years back and it really makes me to stick with Nikon. To upgrade, I bought D7000 and realized how Awesome it is. Everything in the camera is easily accessible. I use it with Nikon 18-200mm VR II. It's an excellent Combo and produce Great Images every time. As everyone say It's Best for It's Low-light performance. Dual SDCard slot is Great when you shot throughout the day on trips. It's bit heavy and I used to it.
Summary: With the newer modelD70?? just released, this camera becomes even more attractive. 16Megapixels is *more* than adequate for 99% of needs. 22is truly overkill unless you print 48" posters. This is a "pro camera" hiding in a mid-range price field. I read one review that compared Canon to Nikon, saying that Nikon (D7000) is like a "PC," whereas Canon's "comparable" is more like a "MAC.
Excerpt: Taking my time and learning my camera. Reading the manual and watching all the cool stuff on Youtube. Going from a d5000 to a D7000 is a most rewarding challenge. I'm getting more out of my d7000 then I ever dreamed of.
Excerpt: I took this camera after using for several years the nikon D5000. The difference between the two cameras is high, despite the fact that the D5000 is good equipment. The D7000 has great body, fastest shutter speed 1/8000, good and fast AF is better than in D5000. Image quality is excellent, great dynamic range to ISO 1600. Low light quality is good or acceptable up to ISO6400.
Excerpt: I examimned the body and cosmetically, it looks new. Considering almost $200 discount of a new body, it is well worth it. I could use that money saved for some other equipments.I checked the shutter count via exif information and it is about 60. Although the file name of the first picture is numbered more than 6000. I suspect the shutter count got reset during the reconditioning process. Perhaps the shutter mechanism got repalce. Either way I am happy with the purchase.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I'm updating my stable and decided that I needed a body more suited to my new 70-200mm 2.8. The 7000 fills the role my F4 did/does with my original 80-200mm, 2.8: with the MB-D11 the 7000 and the long zoom are the perfect combo, providing a good range of features and a well-balanced package.The 7000 has all of the features of the 7100 that I need (the additional pixels aren't a factor) at a significantly lower cost.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I have need to maintain both DX and FX camera bodies for work and I needed to replace my aging D90. The expense of upgrading both formats made this deal of a factory refurbished D7000 a bargain. The camera arrived as one would have expected a new one to, boxed with all contents. Shutter count was approximately 1900. Appearance and performance is exactly as one would expect from brand new.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD
