"RE: upgrading from a Panny G3 to D7000"

You've made a great choice. The D7000 has established itself as a camera capable of high quality photography. It will take a bit of learning and experience to master so don't get discouraged. The end result is worth the effort.

Leave room in your budget for a 3rd party guide to the D7000 since the Nikon manual is a bit dry and unintuitive. I personally like the Thom Hogan Complete Guide to the D7000, but there are several that are very good. Get to know the menus and where some of the important settings are. Also get to know what the various controls on the camera body do. Nikon has a great Digitutor for the D7000. Here's the link,

Join a local camera club or organization. They're great for learning and also provide opportunities to shoot with others.

Think of your bad photos as learning opportunities. Look at the EXIF data and try to understand what went wrong. A great way to learn.

Practice. You'll become better, faster if you shoot more often.

Good luck,

Larry
