I got my D7K in early November and have been busy racking up about 6200 exposures, almost all bird pics.

What I like ...

• Very fast autofocus even in poor light.
• The battery needs charging only once a week or so.
• High ISO capability.. very good, but not "noiseless." I've attached a pic of a Townsend's warbler - ISO 2500.
• Lightweight body

What I don't like:

• Limited buffer - I only shoot RAW, and I've missed a few shots because of this.
• The knob that selects the shooting mode, A,M,S,P etc, is not secure. Again today, it slipped into M when I didn't notice and I lost some shots. This never happened with my D300.
