I, as a general rule, dont buy the latest version of any high
tech equipment and rather go for the proven and tested, mo
matter if the manufacturer is Nikon, Canon, Sony, Apple, Dell,
Samsung  etc. That is the reason why I purchased the D7000.

I am not looking for a D7000 look alike or to substitute it
but rather a camera that fits the same lenses and that I can
use basically for landscapes so the D7000 is ready for the
other things I like to shoot as it is, for an ameteur, a very
polifacetic camera.  I dont like to be changing lenses
(specially now with digital cameras) frecuently or carry a
large amount of lenses. I am 71 years old, in good health but
now, nor ever before,  carrying load of bags or loaded bag has
it been to my liking. I try to do the best I can with the
equipment I have. What I cant do I wont do.

The reason why I mentioned the D100   is because of old
reports I read and photos I have seen taken with it. I dont
mind limitations, all camera have them,  as long at does good
what it does.  And the price for a used one is very
attractive. I preffer to put the money on  better lenses.  So
far I have a 35mm f1.8G AFS DX and a 55-200 f4-5.6 AFS DX VR
(because it was lighter 55-300). I am about to buy a Nikon
16-85mm f 3.5-5.6 DX VR or a Sigma 10-20 f 4-5.6 EX DC HSM

But like I said before, I an completlely open to suggestions
on cameras or lenses especially when coming from more
experienced photographers.

I have tried to give a true "picture" of myself and
likings.

Thanks in advance for comments to receive.

Carlos
