"Great features...if only the video were 30 fps"4.5 starson by punim
Pros: As an old match-needle 35mm shooter, I value the ergonomics of the full manual (M) mode. The ease with which the ISO, f-stop, shutter speed and depth-of-field preview can be controlled while maintaining vision thru the viewfinder is a delight.
Cons: If only the HD video were at 30 fps. Also, I want a 2nd battery but the EN-EL 15 currently is produced only by Nikon and is over-priced, so I'll wait for a quality generic.
Summary: Likely this is the SLR last camera I'll need. The resolution is more than sufficient for the size prints I will make, and I am very pleased with the facility for using manual mode. All of my Nikon lenses accumulated in the past 15 years will work with the D7000, so Nikon has succeeded in obviating any need I may have for future still-camera purchases.
