reviewsWhat are people saying about the D7000

"The D7000 is very similar to the D90. This makes it an easy upgrade for D90 users that want a more 'serious' camera, but don't have the inclination to relearn a whole new ergonomics."

"Arguably the best high ISO performance of any current APS-C DSLR"

"The Nikon D7000 produces high quality output in almost any shooting situation."

I have 43,000 rupees with me which is the exact amount needed to buy a D7000 body in my place. I have a 18-55mm and a 14mm with me. I haved owned a D3200 few months back. I sold it to get an upgrade but now i have a tough decision. Shall I use my money to get the D7000 or is it worth to save up for the D7100. Thanks :)
Waiting for your replies :)

I work for a professional photography company part time. My weekends are spent taking pictures, and getting paid for them. The company I shoot for used to use the older DX models. Which takes damn good pictures. They recently upgraded all of their gear, and guess what. They went to the D7000!!! Not only are the pictures just as good, but the cameras are easier to use and carry. I myself own a D7000, and I'll have to say, that when it comes to buying camera gear, money is no excuse. I tested other models, but ended up choosing the D7000. Personally, I think it's the best camera Nikon has offered to date.

Owning a few cameras doesn't make you a photographer. Now stop bragging and go learn to communicate properly. You may want to get a refund from the tertiary institution you attended while you're at it

D90 n 60D ofcouse 60D win...
please check the comparison...D90 and 500D is the same range,
60D is the semi pro..(double digit).

I've been using d7000 for 2 years now. Mostly I use it for weddings and street photography. I dont have any problem using it except worrying about the shutter count limit. So if you want to buy the D7000 and use it for weddings and partys, i say go ahead..
 
Brad (3:27 PM, June 30, 2013)
Just because you're the "king of cameras" doesn't mean that you can call someone who wants to learn new things and giving his thought a "Moron"..
And hey, listen to this, owning lot of cameras doesn't make you a pro dude...

You regard D7000 as an Entry-Level DSLR whereas Canon EOS 60D regarded as a Pro-Level DSLR? Why? Did you make a mistake?

I am trying to decide what is better; to buy the nikon d800 or the nikon d7000 with 4 lenses. I am doing a project with it. http://igg.me/p/167486?a=846843

Okai, should I buy D7000 or Canon D60 ? :) I can't decide. :c I take pictures of animals. Most horses. I need a camera that can take good pictures of things that is moving fast. (Horses running) I really love both brands... I really LOVE the flip out screen on 60D it a huge plus. But I can't decide based on a flip out screen. :p D7000 is really heavy. I've hold it once but I don't know about 60D. I don't like to heave cameras either.

I want to buy a camera to shoot weddings, partys and i'm considering Nikon D7000.The camera will do a good job?Whitish flash you recommend?
 
Josephdev1234 (8:39 PM, May 04, 2012)
The D7000 is the better camera and gives you more flexibility with respect to lenses, and once you master other skills you can tap into it's other strengths.
 
Josephdev1234 (8:31 PM, May 04, 2012)
I upgraded from a D80 to a D7000. The video capability of the camera is of a high standard. If you stick to Nikon it means that you can keep the lenses you already have. I cannot advise about Canon's as I have never used one. The D7000 is a really good camera is all I can advise and is much better than the D80.
 
Josephdev1234 (8:04 PM, May 04, 2012)
This is an excellent camera with a metallic body. I have had mine for about a year now and find it really easy to use, yet allows the flexibility of manual controls. The d7000 has a built in focus motor so the range of lenses you can use is enormous. It's larger and heavier than the entry level DSLR, this is not an entry level camera.
 
Maren (9:11 PM, April 30, 2012)
Thank you for the information :) I want to take photos for a long time and get great pictures, and if I have to sit and read a lot about D7000 it's okay. So I think I'm going to invest in a D7000 right away and just use much time on learning how to use it well :) I've heard its a god camera for taking pictures of horses running. And that's what I take pictures of all the time.

The D5100 is built with the beginner in mind, where as the the D7000 is more of an intermediate to semi-pro camera. So the D5100 will help you along, but you will need to figure out the D7000 on your own. That being said the D7000 is among the best cameras on the market right now.
 
Maren (8:57 PM, April 30, 2012)
I got a old sigma lens. Without focus motor. I don't remember the name of it right now.. But I'm saving to buy everything now. Camera and lenses. So if you could recommend a camera with some good lenses for a beginner :) Would love the help! so confused..
 
Avatar for Snapsort Snapsort (8:54 PM, April 30, 2012)
What lenses do you have? The D5100 doesn't have a built in focus motor, so if you have older lenses it might not work with them.
 
Maren (8:50 PM, April 30, 2012)
Hello :)
I'm a beginner and I got Nikon D60 right now. Had it in 4 years now. I'm FAR from good but I wanna be better. And I'm thinking about buying a new one. Should I buy Nikon D5100 or D7000 ? :) Right now I'm thinking about D7000. But I'm scared if the camera is to advanced for me..

Hey!! d7000 does not use sensor shift for stabilization. It use stabilization from de Nikkor VR lenses.
