Summary: Overall this is a good camera body. I moved to this from a D90 and the similarity of controls was nice. This greatly reduced the learning curve. I like the added pixels as compared to the D90. This helps when I do 22" X 17" prints. However, when I did tight shots at F2.8 on both my main lenses - Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II AF-S Nikkor Zoom and the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S Nikkor Wide Angle Zoom Lens (These are both VERY good lenses.
If I have 2 choices between Nikon and Canon ,I'll take Nikon.

Summary: My friend told me and I'd read review so I was decided to buy this Nikon D7000,The quality of image very good and it will take me a long time to know about features because I'm not professional photography.I dislike this product because it made in Thailan,I like made in Japan is better.
Summary: Before today I would have definitely given this camera 5 stars. I purchased it 13 months ago and it worked great until the dreaded ERR message started flashing indicating a problem with the mirror locking up--a month outside warranty coverage. A Google search revealed many, many instances of this issue, as well as a few here on the Amazon reviews. I tried all of the suggestions I found online and on the Nikon website: changing lenses, memory cards, batteries, etc.
Excerpt: My earlier review needs to be update. Less than two months after the warranty was up the camera died on me while taking pictures in the mountains of NC. Err message on top LCD panel. Nothing would clear it and camera would not work, period. Back and forth with Nikon. Shipped out to them on the first of February 2012. Talked with them when they got it at the Nikon facility in NY two days later. Would go to technician next work day and I would have it shortly.
Pros: Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: This camera is loaded with upgrades over the D90 but for the most part they weren't all that useful to me. 16 mp is not much different from 12mp. 3D tracking is slow and can't stay locked on to anything moving faster than a brisk walking pace. Two white balance ranges? redundant and unnecessary. Two cards - improves some function in theory but I never really needed it. ISO performance is better but not much and technique can do as much for you. And 17 scene modes?
Summary: Bought the D7000 with extras (lens,grip extra battery, extras) Just moved away from shooting Sony for about 6 years. I wanted a system that I could build with felt like Nikon is it. SO far I have not been disappointed. I do have some Nikon glass which is very good but I have found that even 3rd party glass works very well, I do not have any VR rated lenses and have not found that to be a problem as of yet, even in low light situations, not having the Stabilization means...
Pros: Image quality, Custom settings - manual focus lens (non chipped lenses can be registered (up to 10), Flash control, Movie mode is very good, the auto focus in movie mode is good not great,, Movie quality is very good
Cons: I do prefer CF cards over SD,, not to much to consider a weakness
Summary: I donu2019t usually post online reviews of products that I buy, but I am so extremely pleased with my recent purchase of the Nikon D7000 that I just couldnu2019t resist sharing my thoughts with other potential buyers.
Excerpt: After spending an insane amount of time looking at cameras, reading reviews online, asking anyone who knows photography, we decided on the D7000 camera for my very first camera. Rather daunting, but not an impossible camera to start with. If this is your first camera, be sure to look at YouTube videos introducing the camera, read the manual, and get the very helpful book on the D7000 by David Bausch. I also took a day-long workshop for beginners.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Summary: I've always been a Canon man, but one salesman told me about the Nikon D7000 while I was looking at both the Canon 60D and 7D .... I did my homework and watched all kinds of comparisons and decided that the D7000 was the one for me ..... Only problem was that there were none left in North America because of the flood that hit the Nikon factory in Thailand ...
