Excerpt: I knew in advance that I wanted a Nikon 7000, but just didn't want it enough to pay the latest prices for a "last year model". I use a Nikon D90 and have always been happy with my choice of a Nikon product, but when I saw Rockwell's notice on his web page including his valuation vs the new D7100...
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: The refurbished camera came out of the box looking brand new. I've been using it for a week and couldn't be happier with it's performance. The images are crisp and detailed; the colors are perfectly rendered. The photos are at least twice as detailed as with the Nikon D50 it replaced.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
Excerpt: I am new to photography. I did a little research before this purchase. I stumbled upon the Ken Rockwell page and he gave rave reviews of this camera and buying a refurbished model. So, I took a gamble and I'm glad I did. I can't tell this camera was even refurbished!
Excerpt: I decided to upgrade to the D7000 when my D80 died( dreaded ERR.) I am very happy I choose this refurbished body over a new D5200 I was concidering. The refurbished body I got is indistinguishable from a new one. The D7000 has the advanced features I am used to that the D5200 doesn't.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD, Quiet
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.
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.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, Large Clear LCD, Multiple Flash Control
