Hi there,

I just joined the forum recently. I'm a hobbyist photographer and started out by purchasing the Nikon D90 about 4 years ago. I have really loved the quality of pictures that it has given me, and I've learned a lot along the way. The questions I have for anyone who is willing to answer is:

1) I'm considering selling my Nikon D90 and upgrading to the D7000. I did some research and saw that most people are selling their D90 body for about $500 (US). I went to www.myshuttercount.com and it told me that I have 11,434 actuations on my camera. According to other research I did, it said that the D90 has a shutter life expectancy of about 100,000. I have babied this camera since I first purchased it. Would it be reasonable to list my camera for $500?

2) What is your opinion of the D7000? I have purchased quite a few lenses (about 4-5) for my D90, and from what I have read, they should be usable on the D7000 right?

Thank you for reading this and I look forward to any input you can provide.
