Hi Chris:

Thanks for posting the link to the D7K review.

I have seen the softness or mushiness in the photos taken with the D7000 especially the Chase Jarvis’ ones. Mind you that Jarvis is a pro, working for Nikon, to extol the virtues of the D7K and the photos were not convincing. To me the new sensor with its small sized pixels was always an area of concern – not enough and yet too many to make a true difference.

I am very disappointed that the test did not include primes. When Nikon trotted out the D3x, their lenses of choice were the 24-70 and the Micro 60mm N. I do not think that they felt that the many of the other lenses could scale the new sensor. That is why I intend to use my three Zeiss ZF lenses as the main ones with the D7K. I believe that these lenses could scale the new D7K sensor, but I do not know for sure. The best photo, imho, was the one taken with the 24-70.

I’m inching closer to my “Plan B” and the Leica X1. If it came with a Summicron and not an Elmarit fixed lens, it would have been here, already.

Best regards,
