"Should I consider getting a Nikon D7000?"
I currently have a Nikon D90 with two lenses, a Nikkor 18-200 mm and a Sigma 10-20 mm.This is my third Nikon DSLR, having had a D70 and a D80, which I gave to two granddaughters.I consider myself primarily a large format photographer, but in recent years I've used my Nikon D90 much more than I've used my view camera.I work under Linux, and previously I used gimp, which I got pretty good at. Recently, I've been shooting raw mostly and processing the results with darktable, but I haven't mastered it yet.I haven't made much use of the D90's video capability.Most of my photography might not benefit much from a Nikon D7000, but its higher resolution would help in architectural photography, one of my interests.I have another grandchild I could give my D90 to, but I would have to buy a lens for it.Should I upgrade to a Nikon D7000, keeping my current lenses? What do you think?
