5 out of 5 eggsExcellent enthusiast or pro camera

Pros: • High build quality (magnesium alloy, as opposed to plastic), feels "right" (hard to describe good build quality, but you know it when you see it)
• Good value for "low level professional" camera (cheaper than D300S at the time of this post, has more features)
• Dual SD card slots can expand the number of shots you can take or use as an instant backup
• Excellent image quality if paired with good glass
• Light weight
• Offers the same features as professional level cameras (i.e., mirror up, takes a cable release, 6 frames per second, takes excellent video)
• Commonly-used settings (ISO, white balance, exposure compensation, flash compensation) are buttons, not options in the menu
• Body-only version, so you don't need to have the kit lenses (which aren't bad, but it's better to save your money and buy good glass)

Cons: • Slow buffer (it goes 6 frames per second, but only for a second or two in raw--it has to write to the card before it will let you take more photos) As I don't do sports photography (at least for a living), this does not matter to me

• Crop sensor--for a few hundred dollars more, you can get a full-frame sensor with similar features. But you'll need full-frame lenses.

Other Thoughts: If you haven't upgraded to full-frame lenses but need a new camera body, this (or the D7100) is the choice.

5 out of 5 eggsNikon D7000

Pros: Camera is incredibly versatile. A LOT of camera for the price. Produces excellent images. Takes some time to learn (DO take it) - *read* the Owner's Manual and get an app such as David Busch's "Nikon D7000 Companion App" which will jump-start your learning curve. Spend the money to "step up" to this. You'll be glad you did. It rivals Nikon's ridiculously-expensive "Pro" models. Subjective opinion - better than Canon, Sony, Pentax, etc.

Cons: Nikkor lenses are high $$$

Other Thoughts: MUCH better camera than the $500-range Nikons. If you're just moving to DSLR, you can't go wrong with D7000. Even if you're a Pro, this is a darn good tool. With introduction of newer models, this is on the better side of price curve. The 18-105mm "bundle lens" is serviceable - you'll likely find yourself shopping for lenses fairly quickly if you truly enjoy photography. I would describe myself as an "advanced amateur."

5 out of 5 eggsgreat body

Pros: Feels like a pro body, fast af, great in low light, fast shutter speeds

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a d3100 about 6 months ago and they sent me the 5100 kit, I was hoping they'd send me the kit instead of just the body on this
I'll update the review as I test the body some more.

Also, the shipping was okay, not as fast as usual. Plus, they are recycling boxes or something now? Mine looked like it had been used a few other times (wripped on flaps under tape. Also could have fit three of these units in that same box plus the padding they use.

5 out of 5 eggsworth every penny you spend on this super camera

Pros: Super fast camera, the image quality beats Canon 7D, which I initially planned on buying. Matching up Canon 5D Mark II image quality, only with this price.
Performance wise is suitable for landscape photographer or portraits photographer, Excellent DSLR, two thumbs up!

Cons: Continuous shooting mode performance goes down after about 20 shots in a row. Then goes about 1 or 2 pics/second.
While Canon 7D is great for sport shooting, you'd never miss a shot with that machine, but not with Nikon D7000.

Other Thoughts: In conclusion, if you're sport photographer, definitely go with Canon 7D... for anything else, definitely go with Nikon D7000, you'll never regret the price you spent on it and with amazing quality. This camera is a beast to that aspect. I researched for months before on buying either from Nikon or Canon, the decision was way more than a single click. So trust my words, you will cut corners.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera

Pros: Small and solid, with a nice heft for stable shots. Tons of options. Beatiful pics and great in low light.

Cons: Even with pentaprism manual focusing is tricky, but my earlier camera d40x did the same thing. I miss film for this reason!

Other Thoughts: Made in Thailand, since they had flooding the price has gone up $70 dollars!

5 out of 5 eggsOne sweet camera

Pros: This is one terrific DSLR. Although I've only had it for a couple of weeks, it does everything you could possibly want to do photographically.
I've been into photography for close to 35 years and had both Nikons and Leicas and this is by far the best of the bunch. It can shoot in raw format and the images are incredible!
I got it with the 28-300mm lens, also from Newegg and am going to aquire a 10-24mm soon. Unfortunately Newegg doesn't carry that particular lens, so I'll have to shop elsewhere for that.

Cons: The only cons I can think of are it doesn't come with any memory card, but I bought a couple for the 2 card skots from Newegg, so I gi=uess I'm good there and I don't think many cameras come with memory cards these days anyway.
The manual is really detailed, about 325 pages detailed, but this thing is just about a computer with a lens attached!

Other Thoughts: I can't envision another camera that would do the job better for me. Incredible shutter speeds and overall capabilities.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera, Great Price

Pros: Solid body construction,
Very good high ISO performance,
The battery lasts a very long time on one charge,
Very easy to use non-CPU lenses,
U1 and U2 modes,
dual SD card slots,
The camera has a significant weight to it making it easier to use with heavier lenses (like the nikkor 70-200 f/2.8)

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: This camera really performs great under almost every circumstance.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Well, there just isn't enough good to say about it. For the money, at this time, it is just beyond amazing. I do a lot of photography and photography is a part of my job description (Graphic Artist by trade). I have one personally and just got one for work as well.

Incredibly sharp photos, excellent white balance (handles better than the D90), very well constructed, MUCH improved ISO options... well the list could go on for a while. If you are thinking about it, GET IT.

Cons: I don't care for the new battery door. A little cumbersome if you are in a hurry.

I don't like the release mechanism for the data card door either.

The MB-D11 multi-battery grip is just too expensive. A great accessory, but too expensive.

Other Thoughts: I haven't done much with the video feature other than home/holiday videos (which it does a marvelous job of) but I do recommend large, fast cards. At least 8g to be happy for the whole evening.

Though pricey, the accidental damage coverage Neweggs offers is nice. I bought it for peace of mind. If you do a lot of photography you know how inattentive people can sometimes run you over. Never broke anything, but still. It's worth the money to me.
