"Just got a D7000"


Manotick, CA
          

Well, I'm joining this forum, NAS strikes again - arrgh!

I love the compact size of this camera compared to my D300 (which I'm keeping) - it feels like a precision instrument, a little gem!

I'll spend tomorrow shooting it - can't wait - and stay up late reading the manual tonight! I get more excited with a new camera than a new car - Yahoo!

Welcome Phil. I'm new here myself, having just got a D7000 last weekend. I like the size and weight very much.

Rocky

Thanks Rocky; I just finished a day of walking around with it and love it. It will become my primary camera now, the D300 as backup. Here's one of my first photos with it (of the Canadian Parliament buildings).

NAS is a mean task master!

I am about 10 days ahead of you. Got mine on 3/15. Got the same 70-200mm F2.8 VRII at the same time. Darn you gotta love the D7000. What an amazing camera!

Shoot, shoot and shoot some more!

Hey Phil,
Great Pic.
Dont you find carrying 70-200 a bit heay? for a walk arround lens that is?
I have been debating on aquring it for some time now !

Next in line are lenses :105,2.8 MICRO VR, 50MM1.4G,and 70-200 2.8(?)

Hi Amol,

No, not at all. I got a Black Rapid R7 strap that, when attached to the lens, makes walking around with it a breeze. I plan to do a lot of hiking with it.

The quality that the 70-200 produces is worth the weight to me, and after using it, no other zoom in that range appeals to me.

Cheers,

Phil

Phil,

I have the same strap and lens. I attached my strap to the camera. Is it safer to attach the strap to the lens?

I absolutely agree with you about the quality the 70-200 produces. I do find that my wrists are a little sore after shooting a basketball game.

Thank you,

Cheryse

I have read that with the 70-200, you should attach the strap to the lens Cheryse; perhaps others can comment to confirm this is correct?

Thanns Phil. I get the idea. Now the question is strep first or the lens !!!!! may be at the same time.
I currently love my 35mm 1.8G and the kit 18-105.
Will be posting some new shoos soon for you and other friends to comment and guide me.
Happy Clicking.
Amol

I, too have just received my 7000 with the 18-105 lens. Hafta say, I am disappointed in th lens..not very sharp except for 2-3m close-ups.

Maybe I just havent got th hang of it yet.

They clean up reasonably in Photoshop, but then, so do my Lumix pix!
