I always get the 2 year extended warranty for Nikon DSLR systems. Definitely worth the money and good insurance against minor or major problems. I have used this service twice and have been very happy with the prompt and quality work by Nikon Service.
I prefer the Nikon warranty to that of third parties. I have found Nikon to be ver customer oriented in the past, but do not know if any particular third party will be there when I need them.
The investment in an extended warranty is justified by the high cost of the camera and any repair work that would have to be done. I may never use the extended warranty, but it gives me peace of mind and the assurance that my D7000 would be serviced by an authorized Nikon repair facility. The other warranty plans are mostly cheaper but I have had difficulty getting repairs done by off-brand warranty plans, so I stick to the real thing.
I believe in extended service contracts for expensive photo, electronic, and computer items and the Nikon d7000 has all three elements. Yes this agreement cost more than other non-Nikon agreements, but I like that it is through Nikon with an authorized Nikon Repair Center, Nikon trained techs, with Nikon parts. I have a repair center very close to me, so no shipping of items for repair. The d7000 is technically complicated. Things could go wrong, so I feel better with a extended service agreement from the original manufacturer. While other agreements with private camera stores are usually cheaper, there is always a possiblity that they might go out of business or not honor their original agreement within the length of time of the service contract. This is more unlikly with a large company like Nikon.
