Shutter Failed at 18,000. Took the sensor with it

JMH, Amazon
14 December 2012
  • Summary: Despite the purported reliability of this camera, the shutter broke at 18,000. It scratched the sensor as it broke so repair bill was $630. If you do buy this camera, I would suggest an extended protection plan.

Broken out of the box.

Ryan & Alexandra, Amazon
11 December 2012
  • Summary: I received the camera today and am already putting it back in the box to return to Amazon. I charged and inserted the battery but the device failed to power-on. More charging, still nothing. Gave it to my wife and brother to make sure I was not missing something important. Nothing. I will be shipping it all back in the morning and expect to receive a replacement. I will update this review if the replacement turns out to actually work.

chronic oil spots on sensor

shaun, Amazon
14 June 2012
  • Summary: The Nikon D7000 is afflicted by a chronic problem of oil spots showing up on the sensor, likely from the mirror mechanism. This is not a dust problem, but the oils used to actuate the mirror being flicked onto the sensor. You can google "Nikon D7000 oil spots" to read about many other D7000 users with the same problem. I have had the sensor cleaned by technicians twice, and the oil spots showed up within the first few images taken after cleaning.

Unfortunately, I will be returning because of backfocus issue.

Nick A. "'99 Domer", Amazon
9 June 2012
  • Summary: Like the title says, I will be returning my D7000. I don't want to return for another in hopes of getting a "good one" out of the bunch. I read of the backfocus issue in the reviews, but since the positive reviews far outweighed the negative reviews and since I purchased this in June 2012 (well after initial releases would have sold out) I felt confident I would not experience the problem.

Back-focusing Problem Persists

A. Jeng "momotoy", Amazon
4 June 2012
  • Summary: There were many positive reviews about this camera in Amazon. Like many buyers I chose to ignore the negative reviews. My first purchase with the camera was the kit with 18-105mm lens. After hundreds of shots, only about 15% of them were sharp. I thought the problem were the lens. So, I returned the kit and bought a D7000 body, along with Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G micro and 85mm f/1.8G prime lenses.

"Sending my Nikon D7000 back to Nikon."

FstopOne, CNET
17 January 2012
  • Pros: Its hard to have any good opinion about the Nikon D7000 when it does not focus correctly, I think that it should preform this basic function, without it its not worth a dime.
  • Cons: Back focus issues, soft focus problems, (It won't focus on subject, but just behind the subject) out of focus.

Terrible Warranty Service by Nikon

EROL KAYA, Amazon
15 December 2011
  • Summary: I hope that you never need to send your camera to Nikon under warranty. It is almost impossible to get the information about the status and the speed of service is really slow. Nikon practically does not care about the number of days, they hold the camera in the service department.

Back Focus Problem

Frank Hebert "Daddy-O", Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: I own the Nikon D80 and was looking for an upgrade camera without breaking the bank. Researched the D7000 and was everything i was looking for and then some. i have owned the D7000 for approximately 3 weeks now. i have taken hundreds of photos since i received it. i went from the D80 10MP to 16MP. At first i thought i was not understanding my camera and these 39 Focus Points compared to the D80's eleven FP.
