I thought I’d share my thoughts on the new Nikon D7000. There are some great technical reviews already out on the web, so I won’t try and compete but instead give my rambling opinions as they spring to mind.

A little while ago Nikon kindly loaned me a spanking new D7000. I didn’t know much about it when I got it, but within a few minutes I was hooked. I shoot with a D3 and D2x daily and I’ve become accustomed to their handling and response. The D7000 should therefore have frustrated me, but instead it staggered me and on the first shoot I ditched the D2x in favour of the D7000 which was far better at low light and lighter in the hand with a fast and quiet shutter
