Excerpt: I purchased a " REFURBISHED " D7000 body to backup my D600. This D7000 is a very HOT camera and is EQUAL in features to the FX D600 body. I actually shoot MORE with the D7000 then I do with the D600. I love the way you can FINE TUNE lens focus for several lenses and SAVE the settings on the camera as well as the QUIET Shutter release feature while shooting nature etc. The D7000 has HIGH ISO with great detail quality.
Pros: Able To Fine Tune Focus, Dx Features Equal Fx, Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I use the D7000 for travel and landscape most of the time. The D7000 is a great camera. I was moving up from a Nikon D40X 10.2 MP. Caneta Camera had the rfurbished Nikon D7000 camera & 18 to 105 VR lens at a great price with a one year Cameta Camera Warranty. I have been using it for about 3 months now & it looks like it is new and works flawlessly. Don't be afraid to buy refurbished.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: Transitioned to the D7000 from the D3100 because I wanted to experiment with HDR. I have not been disappointed! Right out of the box, I shot pics of the sunsets in Sedona, Arizona and the rust of abandoned trucks in Jerome, Arizona. Went on to shoot farms, barns, and silos in the midwest. Shot a landscape mural for a museum that was enlarged to 8 x 20 feet. Using a Nikon 18x200mm lens, the resolution was amazing.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Tilt /Swivel LCD
Excerpt: I have had two of these cameras. Went to the D7100 after my first one, the Canon 70D and now own a D7000. In my pinion it has stood the test of time and unless your pixel peeking will give the D7000 a good run for it's money.
Summary: I'm a semi pro photographer in a third world country with low budget, but some kind of a talent :) for almost 6 years i had my old good pal the nikon d40, i mastered it and from some time ago i found so many flaws in it .. it even started jeopardizing my work by not working properly, not shutting quick and all.. so i decided to get another camera, i was so eager to get a d700, d300 or d600..
Summary: Im slowly learning my way around this camera and enjoying every second. Takes amazing photos just with the auto setting, but has endless capabilities beyond that. I'm new to dslr photos, not a pro. Easy to learn and very rewarding.
Summary: generally this bundle is really good for starter, you got everything you need and it is worth the dollar. 5 stars for the price of the lens and camera. 2 stars for the tripod as i use it after a week and the holder plate lever got loose and drop, so becareful using it. 1 star for the cleaning kit, i purchase another cleaning kit for that. the cleaning solution was not good, it did not disolve after i apply on it and leave some mark. i have to use another cleaning kit.
