Summary: i wonted to upgrade to a advance dslr my first dslr was the D3200 i seen that nikon is going to replace the D7000 sometime in 2013 so after some research and discussion with some professional camera people it was clear this was worth the money first off its weatherseal the D3200 was not.... the D7000 has got metale body parts so it will hold up over time.. the d3200 is plastic it wont hold up over time.
Excerpt: This was my first DSLR camera (actually, my first camera - period! But I have used many point and shoots, and a Nikon DSLR previously), and I'm very happy with it. I'd definitely recommend reading the manual (repeatedly) and discovering just what this machine is capable of. This camera is great for inexperienced users - the Program and Auto modes produce satisfying pictures most of the time. But it is also capable of 'growing with you', as it is a fairly advanced DSLR.
Pros: Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Grows With You, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
Summary: some high end stands at best buy were much heavier and sturdier which I would consider closer to "pro" level. I'm not sure If the filters are of similar quality as the stand as I have yet to try them out, but probably are...
Pros: I don't know cameras that well but this one works great, I got all the listed items that were supposed to come with my purchase and nothing was broken. Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase.
Cons: The stand was very cheap, flimsy, light and smelled of chemicals, probably normal but something I wasn't expecting with a "pro" kit.
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!
