I have used the D7000 for 10 months and it is incredible. The 39 AF points in 3D AF mode is incredible for tracking action. The 16 megapixel sensor is very sharp and captures every detail. The ISO range is good and I am able to use it confidently up to 4000 ISO. The video is average but for the quick little videos it works great! I love the D7000!

Great Features in a semi professional body! built tough!
I have had this camera for over 4 years now and it is still going strong. The body is built way better than the new D7200 or even the D7100. I find the 16.2 megapixel sensor is a bit better in low light for ISO performance but my new d7100 contains way more details in the shadows. This sensor is still excellent though and should not be considered no good just because it's been replaced 2 times.
I have had this camera in tons of dust, it's been beat around and thrown around. (not misuse just in the line of duty) Also it has sat on a tripod in a waterfall for about 3 hours with water splashing onto it steadily!
Great camera and the only reason I upgraded was for the 24mp sensor in the D7100. Which is outstanding BTW!
This body still has a place in my bag and I use it for fast action work.

I've owned Nikon products for most of my adult life. Started with a Nikkormat when I was a teenager. I've worked professionally and semi-professionally as a photographer. Nikon products have always been excellent in quality and value.
I started with DSLR's with a D3000 DSLR then went to a D5000 DSLR with a battery grip. I just purchased the D7000 from Amazon, got it and the MB battery grip slapped on a Nikkor 18-70 mm zoom and shot my oldest daughter's track meet yesterday. The camera handled like a dream shooting with Aperture Priority. Photos were crisp, well saturated, and the continuous drive at 6fps worked flawlessly. Over 1,000 photos later, I imported them into Apple's Aperture software as well as Nikon's Capture. I cannot say enough good things about this camera. It responded much more quickly than the D5000, and the features on it make photography a whole lot of fun. I'm still on the learning curve, but will undoubtedly learn to love this camera more as time goes on. We're off to another track meet next week and I can't wait.

Análise da excelente Nikon D7000
A D7000 é uma das melhores escolhas entre as câmeras DSLR cropadas da Nikon. O peso, o design, o acabamento e a empunhadura são perfeitos para o uso diário. Muito resistente (com tampas em liga de magnésio). O visor ótico cobre 100% do campo de visão. É uma máquina bem rápida (até 6 frames por segundo) que apresenta todos os modos de fotografia profissional. Aceita todos os tipos de lentes (DX e FX, de olho de peixe a super-teleobjetiva). Os 16 Mp são mais do que suficientes para qualquer situação (câmeras DSLR com muitos Mp geram arquivos MUITO grandes, o que dificulta o trabalho de processamento, armazenamento e envio; a D7000 é ideal nesse sentido). Trabalha com arquivos em JPEG e RAW, de uso profissional. Diafragma e obturador são controlados por diais próprios e independentes, o que é muito prático. A bateria é grande e dura bastante tempo sem recarregar. Há espaço para dois cartões de memória. Possui motor de foco (útil para lentes que não são AF-S, ou seja, que não possuem foco automático interno). Trabalha bem com ISO’s altos (bem aceitável até ISO 3200, embora ela alcance até 25.000). Uma máquina excelente!

A Five Year Old Powerhouse
I've been shooting for almost a decade now, and I love the Nikon D7000. It's quick, has excellent image quality (with the right glass), and good durability. The fact it's still selling strongly after nearly five years is a testament to its quality. Add a much lower price tag, and you've found a deal that cannot be beat. Reviewers may complain the video quality isn't good enough or it doesn't have newest fads built in such as GPS, wireless capabilities, etc. Call me old school, but the point of a camera is to take photos. If you'd like better video quality, there are plenty of camcorders available. And yes, wireless, gps, and such is great, but then again you're paying a premium for it. What photography boils down too is having a solid, reliable camera that can grab the shot you want. This is wha you'll find in the Nikon D7000.
