<<The number of clueless people buying the D7000 probably taught Nikon a tough lesson in overestimating the reasonableness of customers. But it really is Nikon's fault there was so much frustration with the D7000. They promoted it as a do-everything camera for beginners through advanced. It is no D90 which was a remarkably tolerant camera for a broad range of sloppy or poor technique.>> <<It is no D90 which was a remarkably tolerant camera for a broad range of sloppy or poor technique.>

Possibly true, perhaps a bit harsh. I always enjoy your posts, as the detail and depth of knowledge are always exemplary. But, and yes there's often a but! If you remember my biggest mental barrier to understanding why the D7000 was a problem for me, this was that I couldn't understand why my D300, D700 and D90 to a great degree worked straight out of the box. At the time many posters vociferously disagreed with my reasoning. It was true that the D7000 did have a steep learning curve for those of us used to more tolerant new cameras or put another way "us, the clueless people".

One thing I have learned about the forums is one should conduct intense research on the technical aspects of every potential reply to a post, or one maybe be at risk of being branded "sloppy or clueless". I am not saying for a moment that the post was meant to be intentionally inflamatory or directed at any individual, but it can make one feel slightly inadequate.

Only a thought

Richard.
