Summary: I did a lot of research on the different high-end amateur digital cameras and decided on the Nikon D7000. Then at the last minute I saw that the Nikon D7100 is now available, and I bought the D7100 instead. Read the comparison reviews and videos you can find on-line, and consider the D7100 also before making a final decision. The D7100 has some additional features and changes which you may like.
Summary: I wanted to buy a one time DSLR camera for at least couple of years.This is my first DSLR,but i used canon T3i and Nikon D5100 from brother and friends.Initially i wanted to buy first Nikon D5100 and after seeing lots of positive reviews of Nikon D7000 I bought this package..I was very enthusiastic after receiving it and wanted to use in my all trips.
Excerpt: I use this camera all the time. This was an upgrade to my failing Nikon D40. I was worried at first because of all the back focus issues I heard a lot of people complaining about but I didn't experience any major issues with it. I have a program that test ever focus point and also every setting on the fine tune and I only had to set my 7 year old Nikon lense to a -1. To me thats not anything considering how old the lense is and everywhere it's been.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Summary: I bought this package because I trusted them. Now I really regret buying that. The camera is of poor quality. The built-in flash only opens half way, which obviously could not be caused by a consumer. I didn't use it for the first month, 'cause I thought what problem could there be with the new camera? Thus I only notice this problem several days earlier when I shoot a picture at night. I bought it last Thanksgiving, and now it's still within 6 months.
