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.

“SaltLakeGuy“‘s opinion on the D7000 vs Nikon D700:

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.

From the specifications pages at Nikon Imaging (see D90 specs, D7000 specs), the cameras approximate weight and dimensions (W x H x D) are as follows:

  1. 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.).

  2. 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.

“msp-photo” shot some lovely landscape and abandoned warehouse photos with the Tokina 11-16mm AT-X PRO DX lens mounted on the D7000. Read how the images were post-processed.

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.
