DPR assigned a reviewer to the D7000 who is only familiar with Canon. He remarked when questioned on his claim, that he thought it was unfair to expect him to read the manual before passing judgement the Nikon system, it was obviously wrong since it did not react how a Canon would. He later admitted when confronted that he deducted points for not being identical to Canon and claimed that any modern camera brand should be the same as Canon.

If you want to get the most from your Nikon gear, do not pay attention to DPR, they generate a lot of confusion and mythology. Recent reviews have shown a distinct bias against Nikon, probably due to lower ad buys than Canon, or a higher margin for their owner, Amazon.
Remember, they are the ones who pushed the ill-conceived technique of "fixing" D90 AF problems....or claims that they all back focused or front focused, so advised people to mess with the mirror pivot hex head screw in the mirror box. That caused a lot of people grief and repair bills to calibrate it again. They also pushed the notion that testing a D7000 sensor required shooting a 5 minute video at highest ISO with the lens cap on. Tens of thousands were returned when it showed a growing number of hot spots(not stuck pixels, they were normal noise build up as the sensor heated up with a long video. At normal ISO, and without the cap on, the problem was unnoticeable. At high ISO, it was about the same as any other camera that can reach high gains.
Either they were trying to undermine Nikon with a non-issue or they are incompetent. Either one does not serve you well if you want information about Nikon's. Come to the source, Nikonians.
