Excerpt: I am an amateur photographer and recently sold my Nikon D5000 so I could move up to a body with more external controls. This seemed like the logical move as I can't see paying so much more for a stereo microphone and megapixels I'd never use in the 7100. The price point is hard to beat. Nothing else in this category comes close.Being it was refurbished by Nikon, it looks brand new. I can't see any wear on it anywhere internally or externally.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Great Camera, Much better than D5200 if you plan to move on with your photography

Summary: I bought this camera in this thanks giving, I had a very hard time comparing it to Nikon D5200 if you are reading this review then probably you are comparing them both as well, specially that D5300 is now released as well. first of all I have to say that all three cameras deliver extremely high quality images and work with same types of lenses.
Excerpt: excellent camera. used earlier d7000 for a year extensively and for 6 years before that a d200. shooting film since 1970. one criticism, the iso/asa beyond 800 you see degradation. at 6400, or 3200 pretty bad. not like the test results read on ken rockwell. only problems the video switch, which i never use i had to tape off. constantly turns on while shooting stills. the selector on the other side of camera switches programs as well.
Excerpt: Will be updating after testing. However, from the get go...Camera is much easier to operate than its rival competitor, Canon and the large assortment of features over the lower price Nikons is outstanding in my book! It took me a while to find one of these brand new....and did I ever jump on buying it! Read most of the review and You tube videos on the camera and was sold before purchasing it.
Excerpt: I've been in the Nikon family since the film days, using a Nikon FG, Nikon N65, and F100, then moving onto digital years ago using a D100 and D80. When I got the D7000 almost two years ago I was moving towards shooting professionally, doing studio portraiture and then part-time photojournalist for a local newspaper. I didn't have the big bucks for the D3 or D700, so after reading all the specs on the D7000, I figured this was as good as it was gonna get in my budget.
Excerpt: I am using this camera for almost 2 Years & its simply excellent. Its far better than its competitors Great Dynamic range Respectable Low light Performance for a crop sensor Great color reproduction I don't use the camera for Video much, except for the aperture control during videos, it works fine. Kudos to Nikon on this.
Excerpt: I got this for my wife who has a D40 so she doesn't keep asking to use my D90. I kick myself for not giving her the D90 and keeping this D7000 for myself. Take note, gentlemen. As for tech review - google D7000 Ken Rockwell. 'nuff said.
Summary: I love this camera. Haven't got a single problem. It is for those who want to move a level up from amateur photography. I had D5100 before this and used it for some 5 months but then I lost it. :( and got this one.
