#7. "RE: Nikon D90 or Nikon D7000"
In response to In response to 6

The only similarity between the D40 and D3100 is that both surprise and embarrass a lot of high end cameras/photographers.
The D3100 currently is the top IQ DX camera in the line, the noise and color and resolution, based on samples that are filling the galleries is a real eye opener. Its 6400 ISO images leave the D90 and D300 in the dust for example and is knocking on the door of the D700. You would expect a longer list of features on the D90 replacement but the 3100 not only has a good set of new features but basic camera functions and IQ place it much further up the camera functionality graph than entry level cameras are expect to be found. If it was not labeled "entry level" it would be a successful competitor to the large sensor compact bodies that are all the rage among experienced photographers now. At a tad over 400 grams and smaller than most bridge cameras I think a whole wider range of users will discover it as a second camera to the "serious kit" that would increasingly be left home. It is a very impressive camera. If released 5 years ago it would be hailed as the best IQ DSLR camera in the world. The term entry level does not really do it justice. If you value small, the D3100 is the one. If you want to get deeper into more specialized conditions, the D7000 has the versatility to handle almost any situation that can be handled at all by a camera. The D3100 costs more than expected and the D7000 costs a lot less than expected.
