Hi Steve,

I don't think there's any need for second thoughts, the D7000 is a great set of features/value and Nikon's best DX sensor. I've been away from the forum this week and I see there are still some problems being discussed but the D7K is a LOT of camera that takes some learning of it's features but that doesn't make it a bad camera IMHO.

You are shooting aperture priority and manual so clearly you have a good grasp of shooting in which case the D7K will probably still challenge your shot discipline but you have the experience to deal with it.

I've had mine for a little over a month and am really enjoying it. Still lots to learn for me. I think if you approach this camera from a learning perspective you will enjoy the journey!

Best regards, SteveK
