Hello! I'm after some advice on lenses - I'm upgrading from D60 and so have AF-S lenses, whilst I understand that the D7000 can use DX / AF , I'm not clear if it works the other way around and I can use my AF-S lenses on the D7000??
thank you all, I was suffering from information overload at the time having read many reviews and discussions about the D7000 - will be upgrading to D7000 as soon as possible - and a whole new world of lenses!!
Hi - I'm also interested in replacing my D60 with a D7000. I use my AF-S 70-300mm lens a lot and would not like to have to replace it. I wonder if I could ask a couple of questions? Did you go ahead and buy it? How have you found it in operation? Thanks in advance.
Hi Keith - yes I bought the D7000 and I love it! It's a bit bigger and heavier than the D60, noticeable with the larger lenses particularly, I use 18-200mm and the beautiful 105mm macro lens, results are definitely sharper. I'm not too technically minded but I read all the reviews, it came out top on all that I read and I haven't been disappointed. There seemed hundreds more options and buttons at first but it didn't take long to get used to, if you're familiar with manual mode on the D60 then I think you''ll find the dedicated buttons on the D7000 much handier, including a depth of field preview button. Having a separate 'wheel' for shutter speed and aperture control is much easier than holding the button on the D60 to change the aperture. The multiple focus points seemed a bit superfluous, so I have narrowed down from 39 points to 9 or single point for more control, it's easy to move the single point around as you do on the D60, however, I'm tending to use manual focus more these days anyway. The double memory card slot takes the worry away for running out of space on holidays, or shoot jpeg on one card and RAW on the other simultaneously. Your lens will be fine on the D7000, gone are the days paying for more expensive AF-S lenses, the AF-D's are compatible as the focus mechanism is in the camera and not required in the lens. Just make sure you set both the camera body AND lens to manual or AF depending on which you're using - I found this as almost a throw-away comment in the vast manual that came with the D7000, apparently it can do some damage if you don't. The manual is excellent by the way, very easy to pick up and put down as needed, and comprehensive. So, on the whole - brilliant camera that I cannot recommend highly enough, I grew out of the D60 and it sounds as if you're in the same boat, I will probably never get to the bottom of everything the D7000 has to offer - but I shall have a lot of fun trying! Hope this has been of some use, please let me know how you get on!
hi i want to buy d7000 with this lens Nikon 14-24Mm F2.8G Af-S Ed Zoom Nikkor. just want to ask is it a good combination? and there is any wireless remote control with D7000? basically i want a camera which is compatible with wireless remote, make videos and price up to £1000(body only) and same £1000 i can spend on lens, any suggestions please
Hi all....right I am a D3100 user and have been for the past year. I've found this camera great but am outgrowing it. I am looking to upgrade to a D7000 but have been really worried about several reviews where people are critical about the AF issue of 'back focussing' as well as oil spots developing on the sensor.....any one got any views????
