I am seeking some feedback on the D7000. I have a D90 and love it, but with the slower kit lenses that I use, I get frustrated that I can only go to iso 800 and get good images. The ability to shoot at higher iso levels with the D7000 is very attractive.
I have been reading this forum since the beginning and notice several posts that discuss the bigger sensor with greater pixel density may cause lack of sharpness of images unless the camera is very stable; ie, camera shake is more tolerated in the D90 vs. the D7000. If this is the case, this nullifies some of the advantages of higer ISO - having to shoot at a higher shutter speed.
I would really appreciate some quantitative input from D7000 users who may have experienced this phenomenon. How much of a problem is it?
If I disliked the D90, the decision would be easier, but laying out $1200 for a new camera body when it may not make that much difference may not be the wisest thing to do. I am really trying to fight back NAS and be realistic about what real improvements the D7000 would give me over the D90. If I was coming from a D60 or D70, it would not be an issue.
I appreciate any thoughtful input someone could give me.
