Excerpt: The condition of the camera was below average for a refurbished item with significant wear on the camera grip. The rest of the camera was in good shape though and the camera had less than 2k shutter counter. Adorama was easy and quick to process my return.
Summary: generally this bundle is really good for starter, you got everything you need and it is worth the dollar. 5 stars for the price of the lens and camera. 2 stars for the tripod as i use it after a week and the holder plate lever got loose and drop, so becareful using it. 1 star for the cleaning kit, i purchase another cleaning kit for that. the cleaning solution was not good, it did not disolve after i apply on it and leave some mark. i have to use another cleaning kit.
Summary: I have just started using this camera, and if you want just a point and shoot I would suggest a smaller camera. They still give excellent photo quality. If you want to go further then this or even the bit older is good for this. I keep my cameras for a while so I got the newer version.
Excerpt: I was really looking forward to the D7000, wanted to be happy with it, denied my initial impressions. But after two weeks of struggling with fine-tuning the auto-focus, it's going back. This can be someone else's battle.Love the viewfinder, shutter response, feel, ergonomics, features, and just-right size for me and my lenses. I'm willing to believe I just got unlucky - but whoever got this before me was also unlucky. I may still pickup a new D7000.
Pros: Fast Shutter Speed, Good ergonomics, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance, Large Clear LCD
great still camera, but not fully usable as a video camera

Summary: - As a still camera, this is a wonderful piece of equipment, and I have no complaints. - As a video camera, the D7000 is a continuing source of frustration to me. Key issues are the following: (1) The 20-minute recording limit is a major limitation. This should be increased to the capacity of the card, or at least to 60 minutes. (2) The camera has several microphone sensitivity modes. One of these sets the level automatically, which would be very convenient if it worked.
Summary: Pros: Performance in low light is superb. Build quality is as good as professional level DSLRs. Custom mode dial is very useful. Small changes in layout from D90 are great. Infrared thingy on the back makes using the remote easier. Cons: Video auto-focusing is a marketing gimmick and just does not work in real world situations. In addition, the mic picks up the AF sounds and it is very loud. You would have to use a mic off-camera.
Great Camera - Questionable quality control from Nikon

Summary: Firstly, I have to say that I am very impressed with Amazon's customer service. I have been buying from Amazon for several years, but never had to call customer service or return anything until my D7000 purchase. I am very impressed with the ease and transparency of the return process. This is what all online retailers should strive to achieve. Background - I've used a D90 with a Nikon 18-200 lens extensively, and found the results to be excellent.
Summary: Good camera, but my d7000 have a backfocus, and many other owners report this issue in Internet. But Nikon answer in letter than it all ok with this model???????? I think is the shamo for Nikon to release camera with such frequently problem. There no Nikon services around me - so what i must to do for my 1200$ to remove backfocus? Fine tuning not recommended by Nikon at all....
