My wife picked up a D7000 yesterday at Best Buy while I was at work. That was the longest work day of my life! I had 2 hours to get the camera ready and we went to my nephews football game. I had the 70-200 f2.8 VR mounted and ready for action. I posted pics in my gallery. Look for the "HS Football" album. This was my first attempt at sports photography and I found I need a lot of practice.
There are some 100% crops unedited and the other shots are resized and I reduced the brightness a little using Paint Shop Pro X2. I captured in Jpeg, CNX2 2.2.5 does not support NEF files from the D7K. I hope Nikon fixes this soon.
I was surprised how bright the pictures are. The whites were almost blown out in most of the pics. The lights on the field were not very bright and I had troubles getting fast shutter speeds. I should have used manual mode and bumped up the shutter speed. This would have helped the blurred action and maybe toned down the whites.
I can say the D7K is a beast compared to my D5K. I love the huge viewfinder and the shutter release is very sensitive, like the D300S.
I plan to go out tomorrow and shoot some wildlife. I'll post some more pics when I return.
