"From Canon to D7000"


US
          

Hi all. New to the forum.

I just ordered my D7000 body and a few lenses from Amazon. It's scheduled to arrive Wednesday and, of course, I am super excited!

I am new to photography and have bought (and now sold) both the Canon 60D and 7D. Played with each for a little less than a month. Both VERY nice and capable cameras. Nothing to complain about in either case. As someone that is new to DSLRs, I am kind of taking my test drives as I attempt to determine between Canon or Nikon.

Looking forward to my continued learning as I lurk through this forum

Welcome
I sold my 5D2 to buy the D7000 and have not regretted it one bit.
Due probably to the high resolution, they were both a bit difficult to get used to. The AF and speed are far better with the Nikon.
I just used it this weekend for MotoCross and it gave my D3 a real chase and even outperformed it in a few areas.

The 7D is probably a lot closer in camera specs, but not in real camera performance to the D7000.

Give yourself some time to dial it in.
My favorite lens have been the AF-S Nikkor 80-200 and 28-300, although it also performed quite well with my 14-24, and the Video with the 35 f/1.8 DX is excellent.

Did you get the Nikon instant rebates on your lens?

thanks for the welcome guys and the info

I sure did get the instant rebates (great deals) but will probably sell the lenses to help fund the lenses I want to get - the 35 f/1.8 mentioned and the Tokina 11-16
