The D7000 has created a stir up and down the brand and model spectrum. I had high hopes for the camera due the trend in programming and low noise progress graph if superimposed on the feature set resulted in my speculating that the camera would be better in basic photographic criteria than any DX camera on the planet. The ones most offended by such a conclusion were D300(s) owners who insisted that no way would a cheaper consumer camera be in the same league in anything.
I ran across this thread on another forum posted by a well known pro nature photographer who regularly uses the D300s, D3s and D700
Steve's conclusion, which he labeled as being "shocked" by the results, is that the 60d, 7d, D300s are not the cameras to compare with the D7000, but the D700, since the new camera is significantly better in fundamental image capture than the DX competitors. If his tests hold water, a new D400 or whatever it will be called will give FX a real run until the D4 comes out to renew the distance between the two formats. Your thoughts? Stan St Petersburg Russia
