Tudo que esperava e mais um pouco.
Após 6 meses de estudo de fotografia resolvi colocar em prática, e esta é A CÂMERA, alta velocidade, ótima nitidez, recursos avançados, motor de foco já no corpo. E incrivelmente fácil de mecher, em apenas 1 dia já estava dominando a base dela (obturador, iso, diafragma, minha lente atual é toda manual - nikkor 50mm AIS NEW 1979 - mas não tive problemas para me adaptar). Pegada muito boa na mão e funções de fácil acesso e intuitivas. Corpo do produto de alta resistencia, baixo ruido em iso elevado, ótimas funções para astrofotografia, como baixar o espelho antes da fotografia, assim evitando fotos tremidas em longa exposição. Mais leve que o esperado. Enfim, tudo que esperava e mais um pouco. Excelente qualidade de imagem que ainda não vi igual em nenhuma com faixas de preço até 50% maior.

I'm a semi-pro photographer and this little gem is one of the best cameras I've ever used. The pictures are extremely crisp and I love the 39 focal points.

GREAT CAMERA BUT.....
THE CAMERA IS GREAT, I AM VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS OF MY PHOTOS, BUT I AM CONCERN ON THE QC OF THE CAMERA, I GOT IT ON DECEMBER 2012, AND 4 MONTHS LATER IT STARTED HAVING FOCUS PROBLEMS. AS I WRITE THIS THE CAMERA IS AT NIKON SUPPORT.
GREAT CAMERA BAD QUALITY CONTROL

D7000 Auto focusing function
I have a D70 since it first come out and it's .an amazing DSLR camera. Recently I upgrade to D7000 but the auto focusing function is disappointing. I suspect the qualify control is not as good as before. I suggest Nikon Canada to offer a recall and fix this common problem once and for all for all the owners.

Great camera for the $$
I've been using Nikon for more than 30 years and have had several top-end film cameras and D1's. When i wanted an affordable upgrade without going all-in on a D4 this one seemed to meet most of my needs. There are a few things I wish it had, like a 10-pin connector, etc. but I realize those are "pro" features. The camera has always delivered tack sharp images when i do my part.

Ive been a photographer in New York over 10years and there is much better cameras thats a fact

Fine Tuning a Must
I have started with Nikon with a D5000. When D7000 came out I jumped on it, I wanted more from a camera. I loved the feel and the set up of the camera. Downfall, pictures rarely came out focused. My 50mm 1.4 was the worst on the camera. I would focus and the camera would focus on something else in to the left background. I kept thinking it was me having a learning curve. I struggled with the camera for a year and 1/2. I finally after many classes and a professional photographer getting a hold of my camera it was decided I had the internet rage of backfocusing. We had to fine tune all my lenses expect for my 3rd party macro (it was perfect). I do not think for the money I should have to do every lens. Nikon would not pick up the repair costs as I was out of warrantee. I am selling the camera and now have the Nikon D7100. You probably hear me a block away when I took a shot with my 50mm and it was spot on beautiful!. I am giving the D7000 two stars for when it worked it worked beautiful.

Great Camera except some quality control issue
I have been using Nikon DSLR for many years now. I think Nikon quality control has gone down over period of time and this otherwise very good camera D7000 is no exception.
Image quality is very good, very good ergonomics. The AF seems to work very accurate.
The best thing about D7000 is, its battery life, two user settings button U1 and U2. I have shot 1500 images regularly with one full charging. With U1 and U2 recall buttons, I can quickly come back to shoot bird in flights as soon as I see them!
The main problem is its sensor dust issue. Its sensor seems to attract dust all the time. I have to get it cleaned almost twice a month from Nikon Service Centre. Also, Nikon has changed mirror drive once, still I see many dust spots on its view finder!
I hope Nikon will get rid of such issue in it updated version D7100.

One week old, and out for repair.
So, I've been shooting Nikon F3 film camera for years, and decided to go digital with the D7000 on the fact that I could keep using my AI and AIS lenses. Same lenses for film AND digital — SCORE (I still want to keep shooting on film).
Unboxing the camera vey exited only to find out it back focuses like crazy. I return the camera to the store, who at first refuses to help me, but blames my "old" lenses — working perfectly for 20 years with my F3 I might ad (first my dad used them professionally and now I am using them). The store excuses the problem by telling me back- or front focus is normal for a digital SLR, normal, what normal?
I call Nikon Denmark, who agrees with me that there should not be a problem using AI and AIS lenses with the D7000. However, if the store will not help me, Nikon will not be able to offer me a repair under warranty either. The camera was a week old by then. Thanks guys!
Back to the store. Who tells me that I may have to use AF Fine Tune (which I know does not work on manual lenses — but the store does not listen, they talk, so they kept going on about AF Fine Tune). Finally I convince them that the body has a problem and they agree to call the repair center, who luckily agrees to take the camera in under warranty. The store however tells me that I might never get the camera working perfectly with manual lenses (even though the manual states that the D7000 is compatible with AI and AIS lenses). A $1000 camera should be able to, if nothing else, shoot a photo in focus — or am I being completely unreasonable here.
So … in a couple of days I have had the D7000 for two weeks, but I have not as of yet shot a single frame in focus.
My girlfriend's cheap Canon 1000D with a plastic lens performs better than the Nikon D7000 with real glass attached to it.
DISAPPOINTED does not even begin to describe how I feel about Nikon right now.
So, now I am waiting for my camera to be adjusted hoping and praying that it will be working perfectly when I get it back, or else I will be out $1000 and bad out of luck.

A camera for the world and pros
My camera has already been in a film as I was shot on video while shooting a tribal bikini shoot on some dunes. I shot for six hours for a magazine and clothing line and did maybe two thousand or more shots and the little monster didn't even need to change its battery. The buffer problem is easy to fix with the right card. It is a lowlight champ, and because its saturation, sharpness, is actually customizable, it is a brilliant design. I would only like a bigger viewer, like a 35mm film camera, but overall, it is simply a great camera and with it a talented shooter can take on mightier cameras. It was rated as a backup camera for pros but it really exceeds expectations. I want another one. In Manual settings it just rocks with its two main control spin dials and often I run four different speedlights off it. I use some powerful speedlights and the whole commander system is just great. In studio with the right glass it seizes beauty. I really don't need another camera and if I did it would be for a certain Nikon glass, the legendary 135mm 2.0, and I would go D3x or D4. The focus system is a gift from the camera gods! I would include a photo but that's advertising and guess what I like to do! I could use another one of it as a backup.

Meilleur appareil dx !
J’adore cet appareil ! J'ai déjà essayé un d3000 et je voulais m'en acheter un et je m'amuse beaucoup, c'est mon premier appareil ! Pour commencer, si vous voulez être meilleur, acheter le d7000 surtout pour commencer à shooter en manuel le bouton iso, le shutter speed et l'aperture sont très facile à contrôler !

Good upgrade for me!!!
I bought this camera before reading any reviews, but I did compare cameras. I was replacing a Fuji S3 Pro. I need the High ISO and wanted 2 card slots, so this camera was the best choice in my price range. I haven't used it heavily yet, but its does almost everything well. There are so many options that can change how the image is recorded that I think some of previous reviews didn't change some of the settings.
The only issue I see is its lack of low light / smooth surface focusing. Like the S3 Pro, there are settings that I don't think I'll ever use.
The Battery Grip/vertical shutter release should be built in or come with the camera. It is very unnatural to not have the vertical shutter release.
I am looking for a second/backup camera but don't if another D7000 is good or go to the D7100 (but with a different battery grip I may not do it).

not a good camera
This is my second review of this camera, I've been shooting this camera since it came out, my opinion has changed. The D7000 has a couple problems. I recommend avoiding this model. If either the camera or the subject are in motion you wont get the shot. The autofocus is terrible. Also this camera gets oil on the sensor. I wish I could afford to replace this camera. It really limits what I can shoot and increases my photoshop time tremendously.

Autofocus Issue Makes This Camera Unusable
I am not sure if I received a defective model, but the critical focusing at wide apertures on this camera is unacceptably flawed in the unit that I purchased. The point that I choose to focus on is always slightly blurry with razor sharp detail falling just behind the focus point almost every time. Take, for example, a simple portrait from a 3/4 perspective. The eye that I have picked as the focus point is usually slightly blurry while the further eye/eyelashes/details are in razor sharp detail. This problem extends to use in street situations in which the point that I select to focus is always slightly blurry compared to the amount of detail just behind the person/object that I have tried to capture in exacting detail. My d3100 (which this camera was supposed to replace) suffers from none of these glaring autofocus inaccuracies. I am very disappointed and will be looking to return my d7000 body, possibly switching to a Canon that does not drop the ball on simple autofocus point assignments.

This camera has been one of the best cameras that I have ever owned. I used to have a D40, D80, and now this one. Never had a single problem with Nikon. The fact that you can have a DX body with professional features is outstanding. The double SD card slot, 6fps shooting, and 39-point focus system work so well. Thank you Nikon!

I decided to upgrade my DSLR recently from a very serviceable D3000 and I had a few criteria I was looking at. It had to be a Nikon, I wanted a large, bright viewfinder, I wanted a focus motor in the camera and I wanted good low-light capabilities as well as easier access to full manual control. My plan was to pick up a D90 body after the D5200 was introduced and the price went down, but that changed after I held a D7000. I was ruined. Watching the prices I realized that the D90 was only a hundred bucks less than the D7000 so it wasn’t worth considering. I’m not going to reiterate everything said in past reviews, so I’ll simply reflect on a few features I like so far.
The Viewfinder- Bright, large and full of information. I can see what settings I’m changing without taking my eye from the viewfinder.
Manual Settings- Very easy to access
Low Light Capabilities- I normally set it at 160 (reminiscent of Kodak Portra) for normal shooting and have the automatic ISO set at a maximum of 6400 with a minimum shutter of 1/30th. I took a photo of my grandson at ISO 6400 and cropped the image after converting to black and white. Making it full screen on the laptop and zooming in on it to the equivalent of a 16x20. It still looked good with some noise that gave it the look of Tri-X-Pan. Indoor color shots of food (that’s my primary use of the camera, food blogging) at 1600 ISO are magnificent.
Two card slots- Nice feature. I set it up so I shoot JPEG on one card and RAW on the second.
Depth of Field Preview- I missed this feature on cheap cameras.
Focus- Many people claim this camera has a ‘back focus’ issue. I can’t say that I have it on mine; I can’t say that I do. What I can say is that I find it to be the fastest focusing camera I’ve ever had. I also find that it focuses on what I want, most of the time. No camera will ever be 100% accurate.
Sharpness- Pictures are sharp and clear. I set the color to vivid for everything but portraits.
Live Screen- Nice, but I like the viewfinder. It doesn’t like to autofocus as well in live mode as the camera uses a different (more archaic) focus system. I haven’t used to video mode as yet, it wasn’t important in buying the camera.
Overall, I’d recommend this camera to the photographer who wants superb photos and ease of control.

Succinctly,this camera means business. If you are shopping for a mid range Dslr I would recommend the D7000 in a heart beat with no apologies to any nay sayers. There is something about Nikon and it's 7s the D70 opened a whole new world to so many ushering in affordable digital slrs for the masses, the D700 is a master piece which helped introduce the full frame sensor and no the D7000 which bridges the gap between Professional cameras and consumer models. This camera keeps up with me, produces amazing images and it is intoxicating to use this marvel.

I have always shot NIKON and loved every one that I have used. From a point and shoot to a DSLR. I recently bought this as an upgrade from the d3100. I was so excited to get it after speaking to the Nikon rep at a trade show. He assured me that this was the best upgrade for me. (i was contemplating the d600 and wish i would have gone with that originally). The first D7000 that i had i had to return to Best Buy because it would not focus and it would not fire the built in flash. I exchanged it for another one. I have been playing with it for 2 weeks now and just did a focus test on it. Not only did it back focus on every single shot with two different lenses, it also side focused. I am very disappointed because this was supposed to be an awesome camera! And it is anything but. I will be returning it to Best Buy again today. :( for the second time. But this time I am NOT getting another one. I will moving up to the D600.
I have googled it and spoke to Nikon several times about the issue and they could not fix it. From what i have read it is a horrible problem with the camera. I wouldnt waste your money.

Essa câmera Digital sDLSR é tudo de bom, é perfeita para qualquer momento, mais com um porem, é um pouco pesada, fora isso é demais. Recomendo para qualquer pessoa que procura qualidade, durabilidade e segurança.

Love the quality of the camera!
This was a big jump for me- I went from a point and shoot to a DX- and I am amazed at the photos it produces. I shoot completely manual- and love every minute with my camera. It amazes me and it was the perfect fit for me. Perfect for those who really want a big step into photography and want something really good, but not too crazy expensive! My favorite features are live view, because when I have my camera at an odd angle, I can tell if its focused or not; and the two card slots. Love this camera and would recommend it in a heartbeat.

Only one flaw
I am completely happy with everything about this camera with one exception. The buffer is too slow for wildlife, especially birds. I know this is a trade-off for the impressive file sizes but every now and then I miss the critical shot. I'm learning to be more discerning and wait which the D7000 allows with it's fast focusing and shutter response. All in all I'd buy it again. One of the deciding features for me is the ability to program in my old Nikkor's and use them with full metering. My 30 year old 105/f2.5 coupled with this camera makes for some incredibly sharp photos.
February 12, 2013
I like the camera, but I seem to have problems and have had to exchange it.
I love the 2 SD slot and I love the 6 frame per sec. I bought the first one and used it a lot. After the first few months, it would say It didn't have a SD card in it after I had taken 400 pictures. It would not shut off either. I had to remove the battery and then it would "fix' it for a while. I exchanged it for another. It started to do the same thing while I was shooting pictures for a gala event. I also realized that even though it was saying it was taking the pictures, It was not showing up on my SD card. It also began leaving weird shadows on the subjects of my pictures, only when I turned the camera in one direction. I have since exchanged it and am going to try it a third time. I am getting ready to go on vacation so I will be using it a lot there and we will see if it does the same thing.

Good camera but has it's faults
I really like the D7000 and it was a nice step up from my D3100. The low light capibilities are good for a DX camera. My biggest complaint is the back focus issue. I miss focus very often with this camera and after may tests and talking to others I've found it's the camera. I adjusted the AF fine tune and that did help. Overall this is a great camera and for the price it rocks! But the backfocus issue has now pushed me into a D600.

D7000 w/ AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR
This camera far surpasses my expectations for what I expected. Before purchasing it in November of 2011, I researched the different DSLR cameras available. This camera had the best ratings for any of the mid-range DSLRs on the market at the time I purchased it. I can now say it has not disappointed me at all.
The few times I have encountered a problem with a picture not turning out the way it should, it has always fells back down to something I did. The camera has never missed all the times I've used it. It is fast to power up, fast to take the picture, and packed full of features which will enable it to be used professionally or just by a novice.
When I purchased the camera, I didn't realize that it has the flash commander built in. This was a wonderful surprise to find it is capable of controlling several external Nikon flash units without any additional equipment or cables.
I highly recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a DSLR.

My FIRST NIKON and Im in LOVE!
Ive only just begun my photography business venture and this was the perfect starter camera, I tossed and turned night after night for weeks trying to decide what to purchase for a new camera and the D7000 won! Even in comparison I think that it beats out the D300s for MP and Im just so happy with it I think its the best camera for price when you line them all up! however I did purchase it before the price went down :( so even better for everyone else now :P

Sou do tempo das câmeras com filme. Tenho ainda uma Contax com lente Zeiss Planar 50mm f/1.4. Velhos e bons tempos. Fotografia foi meu hobby por muito tempo, mas depois vieram filhos e outras prioridades tomaram conta do espaço. Agora, com tudo no lugar, novamente retomo meu hobby, mas agora com os novos tempos da era digital. Resolvi comprar um equipamento novo, e para tanto fiz uma pesquisa detalhada, por mais de 2 meses, sobre o que comprar. Decidi pela D7000 por várias razões, e adquiri o equipamento na B&H em New York há 2 semanas. Por sorte acabei conseguindo uma oferta magnífica, pelos feriados de final de ano, comum por lá, e comprei a D7000 com a lente 18-200mm e de brinde vieram: uma lente Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D, a maleta da Nikon para transporte, o Vello Battery Grip e um cartão de memória de 16Gb. Além disto comprei separadamente uma lente 35mm f/1.8 e um flash SB-400. Como havia decidido por esta camera 1 mes antes de minha viagem, no mes seguinte fiquei apenas pesquisando preços e não há nada equivalente a uma B&H ou Adorama de NY. Os preços são im-ba-tí-veis! Sem falar que a loja é absurdamente grande, onde você encontrará tudo o que procura. Como eu já estava com a viagem programada, foi apenas chegar lá com os códigos definidos e efetuar a compra.
Eu estou ainda na leitura do manual, já que a quantidade de recursos da máquina é muito grande, mas já tirei umas 200 fotos. Não poderia estar mais satisfeito! A camera é fantástica! Se você não domina ainda os recursos todos que a máquina oferece, vá no modo Automático e ela fará tudo por você. Qualidade excepcional. Esqueça os flash SB-700 ou SB-900. Vá com o SB-400 que é mais do que suficiente para 99% do seu uso, a não ser que você seja fotografo profissional.
Apenas não entendo porque a Nikon Brasil não dá garantia para os equipamentos originais Nikon comprados nos USA. Será que há uma resposta razoável para isto?

big step up from D80
I am a part time wedding photographer, doing about 20 weddings a year. This is my 3rd Nikon digital camea. This is an upgrading from a D80 I have been using for about 5 years One of the first things I noticed with this camera is how fast it is. Also most churches frown on using a flash during a ceramony. the 6400 speed alows me to get good pictures durring the ceramony. The D70 Said it could go to 1600 but above 1000 the picture was lousy the D80 was still quite good at 1600 and he D7000 looks almost as good at 6400 as it does at 400. Being able o use faster film speeds helps me keep from over heating my SB 900 flash. PS I would buy a Nikon flash or 2 with the camera if you don't already have at least one.
One of my favorite things about Nikon is the creative lighting system. This is my 3rd Nikon with this system, it is great for filling shadows on sunny days or giving a 2nd light source for a dramatic shot.
I was planing on upgrading to a D600 or D800 in a year or two but this camera is so good I may wait a little longer.
The only down side is the manual is bigger than the camera, I spent a week reading the manual. Once you know how to use it it is easy to get to any feature you need quickly.
