Anyone got their hands on the Nikon D7000 yet? I recently got the D90 and really don't care for it and am thinking of going for the D7000. If you've got it...what do you think about it. The reviews I've read are very good and most of the sites are sold out and back ordered..

I didn't even know they were coming out with the D800. I've still got my D200 and have been thinking of selling the D90. I've hardly used it and the reason being is I don't really like it. Have you had pretty good luck with the D90?

I went from D200 to D7K, I've still shot less than 1000 frames but notice quite a big difference.

Better colours.  Much better dynamic range - all kinds of detail in black regions that turn to muddy bubbles on D200. 

I think I said this in another thread - HOLY CRAP IT'S FAST!!!  All the same lenses, it focuses and fires instantly.  A significant difference.  Can't wait to shoot some soccer. One complaint I have heard about this camera is that the buffer is poor when shooting bursts.  But -I shot in the hockey rink for a while and didn't experience a problem with burst.

The flash synch is supposed to be 1/350th too.  Haven't tried that fast, but when shooting kids it will be handy, and where it will be most helpful is in daylight so you can use a wider fstop when adding fill.

I had posed dance photos a couple weeks back and every single jumping shot I took was sharp at 1/250th.  With the D200 I found that maybe 1 in 4 leaping photos would be sharp.  I barely missed anything with D7K thanks to it's reaction speed, with D200 I miss a lot when the girls fly across the setup - even when we mark it and count it out - you want to catch them at the peak of their jump and just a millisecond changes the whole photo.  The D200 was just not reacting fast enough, and here I thought it was me.  This new body is like lightning.

The buttons are a bit quirky on the back but you just have to get used to them. 

I've shot a few clips but haven't even put the software on my computer yet, so have no idea how the video looks. 

You have to invest in SD cards.  Class 6 or above or the video will drop frames.


There were a lot of years between these 2 bodies, so maybe I'm not the best one to compare them because I missed all the advancements along the way.  I have to say that I am very pleased though.

I'm off this weekend to shoot a grad and then have 450 soccer kids when I get back.  LOL, I might have a different opinion by the end of May when I have used it a little.

That's a lot of what I've been reading on the internet. I to had missed a lot of shots with the D200...which I also just thought it was me...that's good to know it wasn't just me...lol. A lot of the reviews I've read refer to it as Nikon's "best ever" DX camera. I haven't heard to much negative about it except the burst problems reported by some, as you mentioned. I had to purchase SD cards for the D90 so I got that covered. I've read it takes a different battery also. It just sounds better all the way around.

Isn't Nikon the best????...... :D  I just can't seem to get the D90 set up the way I want it. One time it exposes right and the next it overexposes. I'm just so use to the D200 and the way it was set up. I'm just very frustrated with it.

I recently bought a Nikon D5100. You should consider checking it out. Its features are mostly on par with the D7000 and ahead of the D90. The only thing it's missing is the autofocus body, but it costs almost half as much.

Old thread, Benjamin, but I've been thinking about a D7000 too.  For me the significant  difference between the D7000 and the D5100 is the D7000's bigger, brighter viewfinder.
