Summary: I wish there had been an explanation showing how to use the special lenses (Pro Series: wide angle, close-up, filters, ec) included in the package. I did figure out how to use the two Nikon lenses of course (instructions were in the Nikon manual) Otherwise, camera took great pictures in all lighting conditions and was easy to use.
Summary: Very nice camera, however, The bag is not big enough for all the accessories that come with it. The filters do not fit any of the lenses. The SD card had issues right off the bat. I lost my pics and was not able to reformat it. I do like the camera itself overall.
Summary: First off, the D7000 body is a great one. It has a lot of the features of the higher end bodies, but with the cost savings of a APS-C (crop) sensor. It's worth noting that while this bundle is great bang for your buck, especially if you're a beginner photographer trying to build your equipment library, the lenses are not the greatest. I'll give some detail here: --18-55mm - This is the standard kit lens that comes with most Nikon cameras.
Excerpt: I wanted to upgrade from an older Nikon and this was a great value. It is body only (no need of duplicate lenses) and it is a big jump from my D60. I am learning all the features and which ones I need for the pictures I take. There are features that I won't use immediately, but I may be tempted in the future.
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality, High ISO Performance
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 have had two of these cameras. Went to the D7100 after my first one, the Canon 70D and now own a D7000. In my pinion it has stood the test of time and unless your pixel peeking will give the D7000 a good run for it's money.
