Reviews and Tests
In this Impress Watch test, there’s a video that shows how well a D7000 plus Nikon 55-300mm VR does autofocus tracking in Live View mode. You’ll also be able to view two full-resolution sample photos taken with this combination.
In my own tests between the two (I own them both) I had come to the conclusion that the D700 is a best a 1/2 stop ahead of the D7000 at ISO3200, and I do mean at best. At ISO6400 this increases to a clear full stop. The noise grain is smaller on the D700 so less objectionable as well, and color consistency is better retained at ISO6400 and above. However the tables are turned at lower ISO (in particular below ISO1600) where fine detail retention is superior on the pixel-packed D7000. Kind of glad I have BOTH for different purposes. I’ll use the D7000 for landscapes and the D700 for my portraiture work. Best of both worlds.
Nikon D7000 vs Nikon D90 Side-By-Side Comparison — This is an article at DC Watch, Impress which has photos at the bottom of the page showing the Nikon D7000 and Nikon D90 digital SLR cameras side-by-side.
You might prefer to read Google’s English translation of the article.
- Nikon D7000 — 690 g (1 lb. 8.3 oz.) camera body only; 780 g (1 lb. 11.5 oz.) with battery and memory card but without body cap. 132 × 105 × 77 mm (5.2 × 4.1 × 3.0 in.).
- Nikon D90 — 620 g (1 lb. 6 oz.) without battery, memory card, body cap or LCD monitor cover. 132 x 103 x 77 mm (5.2 x 4.1 x 3.0 in.).
It’s remarkable how similar the dimensions are between the two cameras, given the D7000’s beefier array of features and functionality. The D7000 is slightly heavier by about 70 g / 0.16 pounds, compared to the D90.
Full-sized, full-resolution Nikon 50mm f/1.8G plus Nikon D7000 photos by Viktor Witkovsky. You can download the images, which I recommend that you do because they were shot in Adobe RGB and may seem rather dull in color when viewed in your browser — their full, vibrant color will come to life when viewed in a colorspace-aware image viewer such as Preview, Aperture and iPhoto on the Mac, or Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom on both Windows PCs and the Mac.
Update the firmware of your Nikon D7000 to A:1.0.2 / B:1.03. Instructions for the firmware upgrade is posted at Nikon USA.
