"D200 similarity"


San carlos, US
          

Hi,

I have a D200 with a grip now that I have grown very used to. If I switch to a D7000, how much adjustment am I expected to do? Size, menus, controls, flash control, grip?

Visit my Nikonians gallery.

Speaking in overly broad generalizations....

The D7000 is smaller, takes a different grip, has slightly fewer external buttons. The menus should be similar but not the same; ditto for the flash control.

Given what the D7000 is, I cannot wait to see what the D400 will be!

I came from a D200 and grip. As already said, the D7K is smaller in the hand, I have big hands and prefer the D200 in that respect.
The menu layout on the D7K is very similar to the D200, it all felt like second nature to me.
I've had the D7000 for a couple of days now and I really am liking it a lot.

I came fom a D200 and grip as well...

Without the battery grip, the D7000 feels as solid as the D200, but lighter. This means, to me, it handles better without a grip (in my hands) than the D200 without a grip. I think the D200, without a grip, was easier to lose hold of...

I've found the D7000 operation VERY similar to the D200. I think a lot depends on what you use as your go-to settings.

The ISO button is easily accessed on the back panel of the D7000 instead of being on the top left. The U1/U2 settings on the top left dial D7000 are a real step forward.

I now have the D7000 plus grip. It feels 99% like my old D200, though, again, I think the D7000 ergonomics are nicer.
