Nikon D7000 Silver Award Winner!



Interestingly enough the new Nikon D7000 has won the Silver award through DPREVIEW.
As most people know I am a die hard Nikon shooter and was stoked when I heard of the D7000 press release. This camera was/is supposed to be an upgrade for Nikon D5000, D3000 and D90 shooters. See the link below for camera specs and more info.

However, after doing much research on the 7000 compared to some of the other mid range "prosumer" cameras in this class it became very clear that the D7000 is not such a big upgrade at least from the D90.

Currently I have a D90 which I love shooting with. I usually use the Nikkor 50mm 1.8 as my base lens and then the 18-105mm kit as an all around general everyday lens. I don't feel like going into much detail as I will let you do the homework on it but suffice it to say, that if you are shooting with a D90 currently, before you make the upgrade to the D7000 take a look at the specs and rating that Popphoto gave it versus the Canon 60D.

For now I will stick with my D90 and wait until Nikon can figure out the Hot pixel and new sensor issue they have before I make any upgrade. It stands to reason that if you do well with a Sony sensor like Nikon has for many years then stay with what is going good!
Just my two cents!
