Could not be happier with this purchase
I am new to photography. I did a little research before this purchase. I stumbled upon the Ken Rockwell page and he gave rave reviews of this camera and buying a refurbished model.

I am new to photography. I did a little research before this purchase. I stumbled upon the Ken Rockwell page and he gave rave reviews of this camera and buying a refurbished model. So, I took a gamble and I'm glad I did. I can't tell this camera was even refurbished! How I use this product: I take pics of everything: family, pets, friends. I'm not a pro photographer, and never will be. So, I use it just for fun. What's great about it: It takes amazing pictures! Isn't that what we all want. Yes, it's a little confusing at times, but it comes with a huge manual, so, I use that as my guide to learn the camera. Having said that, I'm terrible with electronics but I was taking pics in 10 minutes? ( I had AA batteries on hand and that helped, the lithium battery does not comes charged up, have those on hand, newbies). Price: c'mon! This is a great camera at a great price! The 'not so great': So far , two weeks later, I can't find any flaw. If I HAD to say something, I guess that the D7000 has a lot of bells and whistles, wait, is that a bad thing? I guess I'm saying it can get confusing when trying to do new things with it: Shutter speeds, Aperature settings, but, I'm new, and well, not the sharpest tool in the shed. Overall: BUY IT. It's a great camera.

The worst camera i have ever owned!
Read the online blogs about the Nikon D7000 spitting oil onto the image sensor! The Nikon service will not honor the warrantee, I spoke with Nikon service and they said it was oil on the sensor, the dealer said it was oil on the sensor, I did not spray oil on the sensor and never had the lens off, so I sent the camera to them for repair, 60 bucks insured and packed, they said it was service and billed me, when I disputed the charge they sent the camera back with out repairing it.

Nikon service is very very difficult. Try a Canon :)

I just got it recently but have been using it for close up photography thus far. Saying that, I must admit I am very happy with the turn out of all the photos and the camera function.
I already own the Nikon D7100 and wanted a backup camera. What I needed was to have a close control layout, and the D7000 definitely fit that criteria. Had it for almost 2 weeks and can say it's hard to see any differences and most important to me the control layout are identical. I can switch cameras and not skip a beat. I'm not going to get into a side by side comparison there certainly are enough of those already on the web. Love the D7000, the feel and the build are almost identical. A great purchase I couldn't be happier, and you can't beat the price.
A great camera, value for money, I have it for about 2 months and I have test in several situations (day, night, landscapes). I'm not a professional photographer but this camera completes 100% my needs.
I have used the D7000 for 10 months and it is incredible. The 39 AF points in 3D AF mode is incredible for tracking action. The 16 megapixel sensor is very sharp and captures every detail. The ISO range is good and I am able to use it confidently up to 4000 ISO. The video is average but for the quick little videos it works great! I love the D7000!
I was looking for a backup camera and I found this deal, it works great, very impressed, thanks so much
I've owned Nikon products for most of my adult life. Started with a Nikkormat when I was a teenager. I've worked professionally and semi-professionally as a photographer. Nikon products have always been excellent in quality and value. I started with DSLR's with a D3000 DSLR then went to a D5000 DSLR with a battery grip. I just purchased the D7000 from Amazon, got it and the MB battery grip slapped on a Nikkor 18-70 mm zoom and shot my oldest daughter's track meet yesterday. The camera handled like a dream shooting with Aperture Priority. Photos were crisp, well saturated, and the continuous drive at 6fps worked flawlessly. Over 1,000 photos later, I imported them into Apple's Aperture software as well as Nikon's Capture. I cannot say enough good things about this camera. It responded much more quickly than the D5000, and the features on it make photography a whole lot of fun. I'm still on the learning curve, but will undoubtedly learn to love this camera more as time goes on. We're off to another track meet next week and I can't wait.
Use camera for Outdoor action, portrait and indoor events. The price compared to performance is perfect. A refurb makes it even more attainable.
I bought this camera as an interim solution till I can buy what I really want. I'm extremely impressed with the build quality, blistering-fast operation, and top-notch images. It has exceeded every one of my expectations. I'm particularly impressed with it's higher ISO performance. I didn't start seeing any objectionable noise till near 6400. The Active D-Lighting almost makes up for the lack of HDR mode. This is the most pro-featured APS-C camera Nikon has ever made (other than it's newer D7100). Perfect for photography students on a budget. Oh, and I can't praise Adorama enough for their superb service, shipping, etc. my used D7000 arrived with nary a hiccup, in perfect condition, expertly over-pack-to-perfection.
I've been shooting for almost a decade now, and I love the Nikon D7000. It's quick, has excellent image quality (with the right glass), and good durability. The fact it's still selling strongly after nearly five years is a testament to its quality. Add a much lower price tag, and you've found a deal that cannot be beat. Reviewers may complain the video quality isn't good enough or it doesn't have newest fads built in such as GPS, wireless capabilities, etc. Call me old school, but the point of a camera is to take photos. If you'd like better video quality, there are plenty of camcorders available. And yes, wireless, gps, and such is great, but then again you're paying a premium for it. What photography boils down too is having a solid, reliable camera that can grab the shot you want. This is wha you'll find in the Nikon D7000.
The Nikon D7000 is an excellent, well built, compact, and high value DSLR. Its size, when coupled with Nikon DX lenses, makes for manageable transportation yet brilliant photographic results. Below is a photo of a Golden Eagle taken at a shutter speed of 1/400 of a second, an aperture of f/5.6, an ISO of 1000, Auto White Balance, and Center Weighted Metering.
