I shoot A priority on my D90 at times and have never had any problem with it using flash. With my D7000, when I shoot A priority it tends to shoot long exposure.
I tried using both on an object same focusing point, at ISO 800, F/1.8 and Flash TTL: D90 shot at 60s, D7000 shot at 5s. any idea what I could be doing wrong on the D7000?
Many thanks.

Clearly you have something set differently on the D7000. One possibility is that you have slow sync flash set on the D7000, although another possibility is that you've gone into the menus and set the maximum flash shutter speed.

The quickest solution might be to reset the camera (2-button reset) to default values and re-enter your settings. I would then list them to make sure you know what was set. If the problem goes away, you're back on track. If not, you know what settings you have selected.

I keep a list of my "default" settings with their menu locations so that when I encounter strange camera behavior I can quickly reset and re-enter.

Good luck.

Thanks so much, silly me I did have my D7000 set to slow rear sync flash.
