I shoot strongman competitions - there's typically breaks in the action, then things get very, very busy.

I shot one a couple weeks ago; I was covering the yoke walk, which was an 80' carry across a parking lot. Basically, one guy carries it down as far as he can, hopefully crossing the finish line. Then the setup crew gets it in position, and the next competitor brings it back. So, back and forth.

I position myself close to the start, fire off a couple shots, turn around, run to the finish, turn, fire off a couple shots, then get the heck out of the way of the guy carrying 900lbs on his back as fast as he can.

During all this, I managed to bump the mode dial on my D7000, and it went between modes, and before I noticed it, I lost shots of 6 or so competitors.

I never had this problem before, others have, and it's something Nikon fixed on the 7100. If I had the cash, and didn't want to buy FX, I'd be replacing my 7000s immediately. It really sucks to miss shots because of equipment failure.
