Your suggestion certainly is an interesting way to approach working with a new DSLR camera. Using the camera, rather than trying to learn all the features, would be less overwhelming and would allow me to emphasize photography over technology.

The number of features these cameras have is staggering. This alone would be enough to paralyze a novice DSLR photographer.

To avoid getting bogged down, I may try a hybrid approach comprised of shooting with the camera set to M and then gradually working my way through the menus and features. There's no rush, especially since it's hard to believe that I will ever use or need all of the things the D7000 offers. But, maybe I will change my mind once I start using it. Sometimes we don't think we need things until we have them and then we can't imagine how we ever lived without them.
