I do not believe anyone here would have the exact and correct answer to your question. I do believe if you emailed or even called Nikon with this question they would be in a better position to answer this question to your satisfaction.

My first D7000, bought in early 2011, has serial number 7402633, so it sounds like yours is an early version - check the firmware versions installed, you may need to update.....

One would believe that if purchased recently it would not be an early issue (unless refurbished) as there have been many produced since they were made available. As poster #1 said it would not be easy to tell by the serial#. I purchased mine on 11/26/11 with the number being 302xxxx.

Many manufacturers use a numbering architecture that embeds manufacturing information in the serial number and it may only be the last few digits of the number are in sequential order. In other words, many serial numbers aren't completely serial in nature.

Nikon is also protective of it's manufacturing data so they won't reveal the manufacture date or plant where your camera was made.

I purchased one of the very first D7000's and my serial number started with 300xxxx.

As suggested, check the firmware version. If that's up to date it will be difficult to tell and time-consuming to find out more.

Enjoyed your new D7000, it's a great camera.

"Many manufacturers use a numbering architecture that embeds manufacturing information in the serial number and it may only be the last few digits of the number are in sequential order. In other words, many serial numbers aren't completely serial in nature."

I believe that to be true, I read a long time ago that both Nikon , Canon etc issue out of sequence serial numbers on both lenses and cameras to prevent disclosing quantity sales.

thanks for all the replies.I did have to upgrade the firmware but only because Nikon came out with new firmware weeks after I got my camera. Troy
