"Completely thrilled by D7000"

Hullo all again, well it's several months down the track in relation to D7000 ownership........AND try as I may, I can't shoot a bad image!!

Previously owned a D80 and D200, can't make that claim for them.......focussing was a occasional issue, especially with the D200.

This thing just immediately snap focusses!

So easy to use, have shot several thousand images, all too easy.........not sure how to engage silent mode!!

My life is made easier by my magnificent lens combination.

I have the unsurpassed Nikon 18-200VR, a Sigma 150-500 OS, (awesome)and finally a new Tokina 10-17 Fish Eye.

I don't want to take the latter off!!

Also have a Slik tripod and a monopod. And a Nikon external flash plus a Nikon GP1 GPS unit.

Not wanting for much!

In addition have just upgraded my Mac's to a 27" iMac, a 13" MacBook Pro, an IPhone 4 and an iPod Touch.

In the happy position of wanting almost nothing, to cap it all off, I have an MG sports car!!

Then again, to balance things out, I did have major cardiac surgery about 2 1/2 years back.

Oh, I am a mad golfer, luckily belonging to one of the best Clubs in the world.

i am a Red Bubble user, recommend the site highly, also a Nikon Cafe and DPR Forum member.

Oh, one more thing, Apple Aperture is all I require, it's unsurpassed, no need for Lightroom or Photoshop. ( which I own )

Have all the plugins, Noise Ninja, PT Lens, Topaz, but don't seem to need them with the D7000. The camera almost makes flash redundant, shooting with high ISO's.......incredible really.

Go Nikon!

You can keep the MG, but I want your 27" iMac!

Thanks for sending the happy vibes. I'm also liking Aperture 3 more and more.

An MGB was my first car. Bought a used 1961 red MGB in 1967. Drove it to USAF pilot training as a brand new second looie, fulfilling a dream. Man, I was somebody. LOL

Now as for getting the D7000 to take a bad shot. I can teach you.

Thanks, all for your input, we are members of a wonderful fraternity!

I might have got a bit carried away in my post.......did not want to appear to be boasting or a 'know it all' , certainly still have a lot to learn.

Photography is for me, a way of life, and I can't imagine life without a Nikon!

Was lucky enough to catch the Annie Liberwitz (sorry if the spelling is off base) Exhibition in Sydney recently.......now there's a photographer! Nikon and Canon I see,

Spent a small fortune on her books at the Exhibition....she talks a lot about Ansel Adams.

If it comes your way, catch it too, it's a must.

To continue to digress, saw the unbelievable Tutankhamun Exhibition in Melbourne yesterday.......quite wonderful and spellbinding.......see www.kingtut.org

Back to the MG......actually planing to replace it with a top of the range VW Jetta!!

Thanks for the King Tut link!

I did not know they were have an exhibition in St. Paul. That is close enough to me for a road trip.

I didn't think you were boasting. I was making fun at my own abilities. I HAVE figured out how to get bad shots from the D7000.

But, I too am getting better!

John, If your car was a 1961 wonder if you actually had an MGA as the MGB wasn't introduced until 1963 if memory serves. I had a 1961 MGA back in the day. The big difference besides body shape was the MGB had roll-down windows and the MGA had removable plexi side curtains. If you had the car in winter, you would remember that detail for sure.

Hi Ronald,

I'm equally happy with my D7000, it is awesome. I haven't had it as long as you, only about three weeks, and haven't been able to get out too much, but hope to do a lot of shooting with it in the weeks ahead.

It just does everything perfectly, without any adjustments on my part.

Phil,

Yes, boring isn't it??

Look, it's been my best camera investment by far.

The new Tokina 10-17mm fish eye is just superb.

And, I forgot to add in my list of gear my Nikon GPS1 GPS unit.....fantastic as with all Nikon stuff.

Ron.......about to go to golf!!
