Excerpt: My refurbished d7000 arrived defective - autofocus would not work through the viewfinder, but would work (for stills) when set to Live View mode. So back it went for a swap. We'll see. After a little online investigation, I've learned this is an all too common problem with this model. I asked Adorama to just open the next one being sent to assure the 'viewfinder' autofocus works correctly. Thay said they 'might' be able to do that.
Excerpt: I use the camera for shooting portraits and weddings. I use it with a Nikon SB700 Flash on and off camera. The selling points for me on this camera vsthe 5200 were the ability to use all my lenses not all of which have internal motors for autofocus. The autofocus works with the D7000 but not with the D5200,The other features that I particularly like are the dual memory card slots and the ability to use the flash in Commander mode to take ful advantage of the Nikon...
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Multiple Flash Control
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
Very solid camera! Easily one of the best in class.

Summary: I've owned my d7000 for just under one year (Purchased, 1/2013) and absolutely love it! As the lifetime owner of several Canon camera's I felt the need to go outside the line despite the fact that I had invested heavily in Canon glass and accessories. I looked at several options, the Sony A77, the Sony A99 (Full Frame), the Nikon D800, and the Nikon D600 all of which were perfectly capable camera's.
Excerpt: This camera was defective when I received it. The green light near the info button (the memory card access window) would flash when the camera was turned off and the battery would drain rapidly. Searching the internet indicated that others have had this problem but no solution found. I called Nikon and their solution was 1) remove the battery at night (?)or 2) send it in for repairs...I thought you refurbished it? I returned the camera to Adorama.
