Summary: I wanted to move back to a full sized SLR now that the technology is just so fantastic, and after doing a lot of evaluation, chose the Nikon. Given the complexity, it is surprisingly user friendly. And the bottom line is, it takes fantastic pictures! I took a trip out to the Texas Hill Country a couple of weeks ago during the peak of wildflower season, and the pictures I was able to get were just great.
Summary: This was a replacement for our tried and true D70. Too many new features to mention, but an excellent choice for those wanting a high end amateur SLR without jumping to the professional models. Very pleased with our purchase.
Reliable, fast, easy to use, high quality, great pictures AND batteries last a LONG time.

Summary: Operates as if it has a mind of its own and that mind was made by an expert photographer. I have been in photography for decades and used all kinds of cameras and this thing is a pure joy to use. I can only say good things about it. It is a triumph of engineering and human factors design. Whether you're an old pro who once developed film in a darkroom or a newbie who has just started to use a camera, this machine can quite easily please both.
Summary: This camera takes exceptional photos, I chose this model over the newer D3200 just for the additional photo taking features rather than the new user features. Kit lens is great for beginners and takes decent photos.
Summary: We are complete amateur photographers. We bought this to take great pictures of our new baby. It has millions of features we have no idea how to use...we just set it on Auto and went to town! The battery has lasted forever (we keep the screen off most of the time). I especially love that I can turn it on and immediately capture a moment. Most small digital cameras take FOREVER to start up and load the screen..
Excerpt: This is my second time using Adorama and both times have been great. Everything they ship comes packaged very well. I really like the D7000, but I think I'm going to get the battery grip as the body a little small for me.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
