Summary: My new camera after 7 years with Nikon D50. D7000 is nice replacement. I bought first one last month but had back focus issue. I tried to AF fine tune but did not work even with -20. Returned it. But the next one came out to be great. Image quality is awesome. I believe I have got another keeper.
Everything I expected, and more, except the memory card (hopefully)

Summary: I purchased this camera bundle in anticipation of a big European excursion, which I would like to document photographically. I enjoy shooting landscapes, architecture, and wildlife. After a lot of research, I decided on the D7000 as an upper level consumer camera, and the 18-200mm lens as a versatile lens solution for all the situations I anticipated. The camera itself is phenomenal. The viewfinder is vivid and clear, everything responds nicely, and it's solid.
Excerpt: This is a great camera. I can see why people love it. Right now I am just starting out so I have the 18-55mm kit lens on it but the images are still great. Once I get faster glass like a 35mm prime or something the results will be terrific. If you just take some time to read about the three basic elements of managing light -- aperture, ISO, shutter speed -- and take the time to read the owner's guide and fiddle with the camera you will be using manual mode before you...
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've always liked Nikon - from the rangefinder to the present. The quality and reliability are extremely high. I move to the D7000 from a D100, and all I can say is that the 7000 is a worthy member of the family. Sharp and accurate auto-focus and exposure when you want it and easy to use manual controls when you need them.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: This was my first purchase of a "refurbished" product. Other than the fact the packaging was different and the camera indicated approximately 1,000 pictures had already been taken, I would not have known it wasn't brand new. It had no scratches or any other indications of previous use. I have since purchased a refurbished Nikon lense from Cameta with similiar results.<br /><br />Regarding the camera, I upgraded to the D7000 from a D3000.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance
Excerpt: Debated between the D7000 and the 2 others below it. Finding it at Cameta at the price I did made it a no brainer. Even the Company Demo one with about 1000 actuations made it a great purchase. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I bought it as a Nikon refurbished and got it at a great price. The camera looks and feels brand new. The box said "refurbished" on it, but other than that, there is no way to tell this is not a brand new camera. The shutter count in the EXIF data indicated that the camera had taken 15 pictures before I got it.I haven't had it for very long yet, but am very happy with this this purchase.
Pros: Fun to use, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet, Solid Build
Excerpt: I am very happy with this nikon.I grew up with nikons when i was looking for a camera i had few thoughts regard d 7000 or d 600. As much i know the quality of the full frame i decide to go for 7000.Great product very professional, nice ergonomic and good weight for a girl with small hands.I am already having lot of satisfaction. easy to learn, lots of potential.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I love this camera! I had been using a d40 for the past 6 years and decided to upgrade before a trip to Italy. So far I have only shot about 700 pictures with this camera and still can not get over how easy it is to make on the fly adjustments and teams that would have been buried in sub menus on my d40 or on the more current d5100 . Being able to change settings quicker with put looking at menus makes the difference between getting a shot or not.
