Summary: I wanted to buy a one time DSLR camera for at least couple of years.This is my first DSLR,but i used canon T3i and Nikon D5100 from brother and friends.Initially i wanted to buy first Nikon D5100 and after seeing lots of positive reviews of Nikon D7000 I bought this package..I was very enthusiastic after receiving it and wanted to use in my all trips.
Summary: I bought this package because I trusted them. Now I really regret buying that. The camera is of poor quality. The built-in flash only opens half way, which obviously could not be caused by a consumer. I didn't use it for the first month, 'cause I thought what problem could there be with the new camera? Thus I only notice this problem several days earlier when I shoot a picture at night. I bought it last Thanksgiving, and now it's still within 6 months.
Summary: I'm so bummed. I've had the camera for 27 months and until today liked the photos when they were in focus. I turns out that the poor focus on some pictures I'd been blaming on myself turned out to be a well known problem called back focusing. Just when I was about to take the time to laboriously reset the focus, the camera puked oil onto it's sensor today. Turns out that has been a problem too. Boy am I mad.
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.
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.
Summary: i wanted to give NO STAR RATING after my experience, but couldn't. i bought a camera from them that (brand new) was in my possession for 2 months out of the 6 months i had it. the rest of the time, it was in the shop repeatedly. i finally requested a new unit or a full refund, just to be informed that they found it satisfactory based on their tests and sent the problem unit back AGAIN!
Summary: I upgraded my D50 to D7000 and was hoping all my pictures would look great. I went to couple of trip to one of the best US National park and also to Hawaii. The nature pictures both in Auto mode and also manual mode came out really great. But the human skin tone was very disappointing. White & Chinese skin tone appears pale and Indian skin tones appear dark brown - totally contrasting to the original skin tones.
Summary: Reviews on non-working d7000's from retail stores, not Amazon. First d7000 WOULD NOT FOCUS at all. No doubt a product of the infamous ongoing focus problem they refuse to rectify. Returned it because after reading the horror stories other victims had with the infamous Nikon Rocket Scientists, I didn't want to go through that mess. Got another d7000. Took it home, charged the battery and guess what... DOA. NOTHING! The thing wouldn't even light up. Nikon QA at its best.
Summary: I received this item and started taking pictures immediately. After looking at the pictures in Photoshop I wasn't satisfied at all. I have a D300s and got that camera out of my bag. Next I shot the same photo with the same lenses with both cameras. The D300s at 12.3 megapixels is a much better camera and the RAW files are much crisper. If this is the replacement camera for the D90, Nikon did a really poor job. Since it hasn't been 30 days I have returned this camera.
Summary: Before I start writing about the problems I had with my camera I must warn anyone thinking about buying a Nikon product to try to call their customer service at 1-800-Nikon-US. Impossible, you are kept at the line with no music nothing for more than 40 minutes (at least) and no one answers the call. The most frustrating experience you can have, specially after paying USD1500 for a camera! Now to the D7000 with the KIT lens. The KIT lens is not even worthy of you trash.
