#10. "RE: D7000 Pre-Ordered"

Hi:

I finally made up my mind and re-pre-order the D7K. After a lot of thinking, I gave up on the 24 1.4. The following are my 12 reasons for getting the D7K:

1. Legacy lenses: It will allow me to use my Non-CPU three Zeiss lenses that I dearly love. It will turn them into my workhorses used in both the D700 and D7K.
2. I will be able to cut down in the amount of lenses to eight main lenses and the two macros. This is something that I was dead set in doing and a "dream" to get down to ten!
3. High ISO performance: It makes the 24 1.4 less needed except for DOF – I cannot have everything.
4. 100% viewfinder.
5. Still a light body compared to the D700.
6. Magnesium alloy body with frame.
7. With the D7’s, it is all I need now and in the future – I only publish on the web – do not print.
8. If I use one, I do not use the other one. Therefore, I prolong the life of both indefinitely – no need to upgrade either one in the foreseeable future. I’m done with lenses! Period! I did not go through this trouble, in fire selling them, to start getting new ones.
9. I’ll look into the video thing. It might be useful, sometimes, maybe?
10. It has to be better than the D5K, I hope . If not, too bad!
11. The single-frame quiet release mode. It was a deciding factor to get the D5K over the D90. It is very important to me.
12. The rangefinder focusing option. It turns the EV line into a focusing one. Another key consideration when I got the D5K.

Best regards,

Hektor
