These threads make me laugh. I have a D3x and a D7000 and a Pentax 645 as well as a couple of other relics.
I have been taking photos since i was 10 years old when my dad first gave me a camera. For me its not so much about the equiptment but about the end photo. I have seen so many spend £700 plus on a camera that they only use 50% of if that. Very rarely do many use the camera to the fullest extent. They simply think that by buying a more expensive camera they will get a better picture. I am not a snob, i have trained at a very high level and have various qualifications in photography but my real asset is my experience.
In the real world the D7000 is as good as any person really needs. I have shot many cameras and even items like the D3100 or Canon EOS 1100 will take a great shot if you bother to learn how to use it to its fullest. So a camera like the D7000 learned properly is magic. The reason i use more than this for my work is that i need the best possible sesnsor and resolution as many of my pictures get blown up to much larger than average sizes. This is why i have the Pentax and an old Hasselblad. The Nikon D7000 i bought for my back up as i had used one and was impressed and its compact enough to take on long hikes in the Lake District. With decent glass this will turn out some stunning pictures. The D3x is too large for this really but has been on shorter trips where i can use my Land Rover more.
I challenge those with a D3, D300, D700 to get a better picture than with a D7000.
