Hi Jeff,

Just wanted to let you know your first 3 photos are very telling.

- You should probably buy a new watch.
- You need to get that crack in the brick patched before it gets worse.
- Stop living in the past. Update the sign to read "2011-0730".

Obviously kidding. We're looking forward to your future photos and a very hearty congratulations on the D7000. I love mine.

Larry

Glad you enjoyed my attempt at humor. I'm temporarily jealous of your Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8. Right now I'm shooting with the Nikon 18-55mm VR. It's not bad, but looking forward to upgrading in the near future.

A few personal observations of the D7000.
- the D7000 is very motion sensitive and requires good shooting skills.
- the auto-focus options are very flexible. I mostly use spot focus for more contol and always have to be conscious of where the focus is, otherwise what I want to be in focus won't be. Learning about the various auto-focus options and when to use them will help a lot.

- You can leave white balance and IOS in automatic for now and they'll do a decent job in a wide range of environments. You can set the maximum and minimum IOS limits, however, and might want to set those at 100 to 3200 or so.

Maybe some of the others can add their tips.

It's a great camera, you have a great lens. Enjoy.


Larry
