"A hidden gem on this camera"4.5 starson by whoosierdaddy
Pros: It's all been said already, so I'll add a feature that I noticed when looking at the D7000 in the camera store: the AI ring! (young saleclerk said "what's that?") If you have old manual-focus AI lenses they work beautifully in Aperture-priority or Manua
Cons: This camera either over-exposes or under-exposes scenes with a lot of white such as snow--very difficult to get it right no matter how you adjust exposure. Also portraits with dark clothing or background are challenging because it seems white facial highl
Summary: I have much more to learn to get the most out of this amazing camera, but I'm mostly awestruck so far.
