Excerpt: I was really looking forward to the D7000, wanted to be happy with it, denied my initial impressions. But after two weeks of struggling with fine-tuning the auto-focus, it's going back. This can be someone else's battle.Love the viewfinder, shutter response, feel, ergonomics, features, and just-right size for me and my lenses. I'm willing to believe I just got unlucky - but whoever got this before me was also unlucky. I may still pickup a new D7000.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good ergonomics, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: Refurbished Nikon D7000 arrived quickly, looked brand new and only had 3 shutter actuations (yep, only THREE clicks). I was hesitant to by refurbished, but with Adorama VIP you have one year warranty plus 90 days Nikon warranty is a good deal.Back to D7K - the image quality is outstanding. I recommend to read and reread the manual and play with the camera before taking in it to the field. Manual is easily downloadable in PDF format from Nikon website.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Summary: Well we used to have a Canon EOS rebel. The pictures were ok, but not mind blowing. One of my friends got the Nikon D7000 and he absolutely loved the camera. So this past Christmas we researched more and finally decided it was time to upgrade. We love the pictures. I am not a pro by any measure, so the book and CD are good if you want to learn photography. Overall great camera and excellent in low light.
Excerpt: I bought this camera as an upgrade to the Nikon D5100. However, I wasn't sure whether to buy it new or refurbished. After reading the many positive reviews on Adorama on the refurbished D7000, I decided to go for it and save a few $$$. The camera was delivered to me in 2 days after ordering it and I have to say that the camera is indistinguishable from a new one.
Summary: First I would like to say this is my first DSLR. I decided to go big so I'm not limited by options in the future. I know some people say not to because it's dumb to do, I beg to differ. I learn stuff really quick. In the few hours I played with it I was getting close to pro shots with it. I did however spend my days on YouTube watching tutorial videos until it came of course. This camera is great, heavy (A little over 3 pounds with lens on it), but great.
Excerpt: I took this camera after using for several years the nikon d3000. The difference was astonishing great camera and great reviews on this site. Problems: The Iso button regulator is not in a good position to make quick changes, i suggest using one of the customizeble buttons to avoid this inconvenient
Summary: Ive only just begun my photography business venture and this was the perfect starter camera, I tossed and turned night after night for weeks trying to decide what to purchase for a new camera and the D7000 won! Even in comparison I think that it beats out the D300s for MP and Im just so happy with it I think its the best camera for price when you line them all up!
