Excerpt: I have used Nikon cameras for a long time. I jumped the DSLR wagon a few years ago, first with a D40, then with a D90 and now with a D7000. I still have all these cameras and they perform just like when they were new.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Focus problems; shutter died at 1/3 of life; then another problem; pretty while it worked

Summary: I've used Nikons for years and was really excited to get the D7000, in part because I could shoot video with it. I've had it for just over two years, and it just died - apparently a shutter failure, though I'm awaiting a verdict from Nikon repair.
Summary: I'm so bummed. I've had the camera for 27 months and until today liked the photos when they were in focus. I turns out that the poor focus on some pictures I'd been blaming on myself turned out to be a well known problem called back focusing.
Summary: Having been a long time nikon shooter, I really felt the move was toward full frame sensors. This camera shows how much image quality can still be wrung out of the dx format. I was really blown away with the color quality and crispness of the images.
Summary: Nikon's D7100 is all that one would expect from a state of the art DSLR. Images are sharp and clear and the 18-200mm lens means that 95% of the time it is the only lens I need. Looking forward to working more with this camera.
Excerpt: Upgraded from a Nikon D40 & have only had it a short time Have had no issues with the refurb'd product...appreciate the cost savings! The images I have taken so far are better than the D40. Am taking a photography class & instructor has D7000, so I am hoping for some pointers on best use of camera.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
