D7000 is that for real?

I don't understand the comparison between 7D and D7000, 7D is clearly the better camera. But unless I'm reading it wrong, the D7000 targets the 60D, and in that case it is a total win. To any unbiased buyer, it's a clear case of Nikon offering more value for the dollar, versus Canon playing the market segmentation game. Once the D400 is released, we'll see what Nikon can do against the 7D (or 7D mark II).

Man! After reading 16 pages of who is better at doing what, my head is spinning!! I have to tell you folks, I read where someone said that in the final analysis, it's the image that counts! I couldn't agree more. I am just getting back into digital photography, and this is pretty heady stuff if I may say so! I am so glad to see that the Nikon/Canon war is still alive and well. Competition makes for good business.

As far as whose camera is better, I will just say that it isn't the camera that takes the picture, it's the photographer! As for me, I am just as happy standing under a dark cloth shooting my Zone VI and creating fine art B+W prints, but as all things change, so must I.

I just hope that I can now make a good decision on a long term relationship with a new digital camera system. Remember though folks... It's all about the final image! Isn't that why we are photographers in the first place? :wink:

Peace

Oh so so naive you are. Many people here feel that if they spend $1000+ dollars on a camera, they should automatically take Pulitzer Prize photos w/o any effort. Requiring that they depress the shutter button is already asking too much.

This early review of the d7000 doesn't look that great:
http://robertbromfield​.com …0-review-and-impressions/ (external link)

All the fancy functions are great, but it is a bust if this is sharpness of the camera. I wish he would have done pics in good lighting. I'm sure there will be more reviews coming out soon.

That's the most ridiculous excuse for a review I've ever read. Imaging-resource has samples up now of the D7000...compare some ISO100 shots between the D7000 and the 50D (16mp vs 15mp)...they look pretty much identical. I don't hear 50D users crying about sharpness.

This review is the result of a guy with a D700 comparing the D7000 to it...apples vs oranges.

The viewfinder on the D7000 is described with the moronic phrase "approx. 100%". This is akin to "frozen fresh".
As a result, many reviews state that it has a %100 viewfinder.

It's quite possible that I'm splitting hairs here but to me being precise, especially in advertising, should be observed.

So what exactly is it's coverage?
Here we go, it'll be something like 99.9999%
Still, anyone would be correct if they said that it wasn't 100% :mrgreen:

im tired of seeing junk like this. you can have a rebel and a kit lens and take amazing photos. its not always about the specs or which is superior. a lot of times people get caught up in the technical side of photography and lose out on actually capturing memories. its not about what your camera can't do, it's about what it can do for you.

"older cameras" can still outperform "new cameras" if the person behind it knows what they're doing.

You need better friends then...

I shoot around people with both brands constantly but beyond good-natured ribbing, we respect each other's creativity and vision.

Ultimately, they don't care what I use and I don't care what they use. It's all about the final images.

ding ding ding....winner winner chicken dinner

I love how everyone thinks a camera is going to be the deciding factor...its a fricken lightbox. it records light. It's all about the glass anyway,,where canon clearly blows nikon out of the water.

I also love the fact that nikon is here. It keeps canon honest and it forces them to keep improving the camera product line. pick your camera of choice and go take some pictures.

So all those beautiful photos shot with Nikon gear is just my imagination since Nikon glass is so inferior?

I'd be more concerned if I was a Nikon user with any camera under a D300s cause the value of your camera just dropped. Canons been kicking Nikon's butt for a long time now and it's good to see that they've stepped up there game to put out a decent camera for once. If the OP doesn't see how the 7d is better camera than the d7000 then please switch to Nikon the marketing people will love you and please don't say that Canon can't touch the D700 it doesn't even have iso100; right there they lose over the 5Dmkii. Now go and do more homework and you'll see you need to pull the trigger on that 7D.

I shoot Nikon and Hasseblad, used to shoot canon. The 7d is hands down the better camera. Don't buy into the hype.


I suck at Photoshop.

I never understand the X is better than Y comparison since by the time you switch brands the other will have a new model out. I myself switched brands a few times and never really was satisfied. The 7K might have better specs but to switch brands because of a few better specs is plain silly.

If you switch brands because of handling of the camera and lens that would make more sense.
