Was planning on upgrading to a D300s, but I might hold it off 1st and check out this D7000 if this is for real. Very tempting!! ;D

I hope it's true, but if this is a D700 replacement, then their model numbering is way off in this one and make this more unlikely. If you notice, Nikon doesn't add another digit for a succeeding model. Ex. D70, D80, D90 or D100, D200, D300.

We will know soon enough and so far no whiners yet!! Ha ha ha.I like the specs of this one!!!If it will provide manual control for the videos then this will be a hit among us ( Nikonians!!!!) ;D ;D ;D. No articulating LCD however but I guess we can't have it all!!!

*toink*! bad news for the savings indeed!  ;D

that ISO range looks mighty darn sexay (100(at last! sana native baseline ito-25600(!))  :o

only bad thing about this is (shudder) new battery! now if we get these what will we do with our extra en-el3e batteries? nooooo!  :D

most probably replacement for the d90, not d700. Specs are nice though.

Current 35mm f/2, ~USD300.

New 35mmm f/1.4, US$1,800.

Darn, the new Nikon primes are being priced like Leicas now!

What this is enticing me to do is to pick up the older AF-D lenses.   :P

Then again, I can understand Nikon's positioning:

You want OK IQ with bargain basement price?  Go with the 18-55, 55-300 stuff.

Ready to take the next step up?  12-24, 18-200, etc.  Or 18-35, 70-300 on FX.

Want IQ, speed, and zoom?  Get a pack mule with the f/2,8 trinity.  If you can't afford a pack mule, get the new f/4 zooms.

Want ultimate IQ and speed?  Get the new close to US$2k primes. 

I think this is partly our fault.  We so readily bought US$2k bodies that will be outdated rather quickly.  Why can't we afford US$2k lenses that will last much longer?   :o

if you're referring to the $1.7K 35mm f/2.5 Summairt-M, yes.

the 35mm f/2.0 Summicron-M & 35mm f/1.4 Summilux-M are $3k & $5k respectively.

Hi Jordan,

I expect that with this D7000, your camera model would now be 7793s or a 7703s?

On more important matters, gifts are better if given by someone else.  

How about I give you a Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 and I get a Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 VR2 from you?   :D ;D ;D

im more excited with the long and overdue upgrade of the SB600, the SB700. ;)

Since late last year, I have long believed that the SB-700 will be released this year.  So I held off buying the SB-600 because of its confusing and difficult-to use user interface.  

For this exercise at self-control in disuading myself from getting the SB-600, I ended up buying 2 more SB-900 to add to my 1 x SB-900 and 2 x SB-800...  ??? ::) ;D ... go figure!

With a D7000 matched with a Nikkor 16-85mm, the SB-700, and a mini-tripod, I may just have a smaller and lighter walk-around backpack to carry around for casual shooting .. or at least I hope so anyway.  Right retina?   ;) :D ;D

It is interesting to note how well the sensor in the Nikon D90 holds its ground against the Canon 7D and even the Canon 1D Mk IV.  Click on the attached comparison from DXOMark below to view the comparo:

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en/Camera-Sensor/Compare-sensors/%28appareil1%29/619|0/%28appareil2%29/439|0/%28appareil3%29/629|0/%28onglet%29/0/%28brand%29/Canon/%28brand2%29/Nikon/%28brand3%29/Canon (http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en/Camera-Sensor/Compare-sensors/%28appareil1%29/619|0/%28appareil2%29/439|0/%28appareil3%29/629|0/%28onglet%29/0/%28brand%29/Canon/%28brand2%29/Nikon/%28brand3%29/Canon)

If the D7000 will be at least one-stop improved from the D90 and will add an extra 4mp in its resolution, then the D7000 will easily out-perform the Canon 7D and may even match or exceed the Canon 1D Mk IV in low-light performance in so far as sensor performance is concerned despite the high ISO setting possible with the Canon 1D Mk IV.

The following comparison shows how the Nikon D700 sensor out-performs the Canon 1D Mk IV:

http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en/Camera-Sensor/Compare-sensors/%28appareil1%29/483|0/%28appareil2%29/441|0/%28appareil3%29/629|0/%28onglet%29/0/%28brand%29/Canon/%28brand2%29/Nikon/%28brand3%29/Canon (http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/en/Camera-Sensor/Compare-sensors/%28appareil1%29/483|0/%28appareil2%29/441|0/%28appareil3%29/629|0/%28onglet%29/0/%28brand%29/Canon/%28brand2%29/Nikon/%28brand3%29/Canon)

Even if the sensor in the D7000 does not quite equal the sensor in the D700 in low-light performance, it may possibly approximate and possibly exceed the Canon 1D MK IV in low-light performance, the ISO settings notwithstanding.  The D7000 will of course easily trounce the Canon 7D since the D90 performs even better than the 7D in low-light ... at least, in so far as the DxOMark test results are concerned.

Hmmmm ... some shifters (from Canon) will be the order of the day once the D7000 low-light performance becomes a known quality.

How did you figure out that I may consider this setup?This is maybe casual to you but I am really having some thoughts of plunging into FX. I noticed some teenagers using this almost similar setup(DX) and they get  very good pictures that is better than mine. If they can do it I think I can still improved on DX system.If rumors are true then the d7000,16-85 and sb700 plus other things is a very good system to improve my skill. The 16-35, d700 replacement, 24-120 can wait for a year or 2 and I can use the extra money for additional accessories like more flashes or stable and light tripods  and some specialty lenses like a fish eye or a DC or PC-E lenses.
The landscape are changing every time new lenses or bodies are being released so our priorities. By reading or schooling we will realized that the we don't really need a drastic change in our system. We just have to reshuffle it to fit our needs and our level of skills.

Shifting? With the quality of cameras that each companies are making, I am not sure if this is a good move. :D ;) We just have to wait for the right model that our brand will produce. Sooner or later there will be one and they can make  to fit our needs!!

Just couldn't take the service or non-service of Nikon products here. It just made sense (business sense) to shift.

There is just too many good things on both camps. Wish I had the dough for a high end dual system.

Speaking from my personal situation, the one compelling item I see in Canon nowadays is the video capabilities of its video-dSLRs.  Canon has really put in a lot of effort and resources to adding HD-video even to its entry level cameras (e.g., Canon 550D).  This is not altogether surprising as Canon has produced video cameras for a long time.

Yet from a still-photography camera perspective, I think Nikon is still the camera to beat.  While Nikon may have lagged in the megapixel race, this has not resulted nor exerted as big an impact as the 50% more megapixel numbers may suggest since very few print large prints, and even those using "mere" 12mp bodies can use programs to avoid pixelation when printing building-sized billboards.  Then too Nikon's new entry level body will be 14mp and the D90-replacement will be 16mp so this will not even be an issue going forward late this year.

What differentiates Nikon is the balance it brings to its camera models.  Nikon has chosen to emphasize color depth, dynamic range, low-light performance, and lastly, resolution - at a reasonable cost to the customer and profit to the manufacturer as well.  The D90 and the D700 epitomizes this approach.  The D7000 is about to elevate what the D90 has achieve to an even higher level.  

Admittedly, there are some Nikon shooters who are hung-up on the D3x and who would like to see this sensor in a D700 body for its 24mp resolution.  I too would like to see something like this but not because of the higher megapixel but rather, because of the improved color depth and dynamic range of this sensor.  Note that the D3x sensor despite its high-resolution has scored higher in low-light capabilities than the D90 in DxOMark testing!  A "D700x" would be a great landscape and portrait camera and would still be usable in other applications because of its great autofocus system.

I am sure that there are many good reasons for shifting to Canon (such as Ryan's citing Nikon's poor local support) but given the impending release of the D7000, getting a better still-photography camera body is not likely be one of these.  

On matters of HD-video capabilities, I will be keenly studying the D7000's video capabilities.  Ultimately however, I am a still photographer first and possibly a video enthusiast a far second so I will order my priorities accordingly.

Ryan, I concur with retina that it does not matter what system you are using so long are you are with us in this community.  

Has there been any particular instance where you needed servicing for your body and or lens but could not get proper support at a decent price?  

On my part, it used to be that I was seriously contemplating adding a Canon 5D Mk2 because of the 17mm TS-E and this body's video capabilities.  But I have successfully (I hope!) waited for Nikon to add a suitable video capabilities to its dSLR.  I have also gotten a Nikkor 24mm PC-E and though not as wide as the 17mm TS-E, has been an exceptionally useful lens for me.  The 70-200mm f/4 IS would have been another reason to add a Canon but this was before Nikon introduced its f/4 VR series in the 16-35mm and 24-120mm.  It may thus just be a matter of time before Nikon adds a  Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR.  Besides,  I have already gotten used to lugging around the 1.5kg weight of the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8G VR.   ;D

Doc, a DX system is certainly capable of producing excellent results (with Bob Krist as a convincing evidence).  A DX body such as the D90 and the upcoming D7000 is no slouch!

As far as lenses are concerned, since your FX lenses would also be usable in a DX, it is no waste to get FX lenses.  In my case, I have 3 specialized DX-only lenses (Nikkor 35mm f/1.8DX, Nikkor 16-85mm DX and Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 ) but most of my lenses are FX. My DX-only lenses are there primarily to take advantage of the lighter and smaller DX lenses but all my new lens purchases will be FX lenses ... with the possible exception of Nikon releasing a Nikkor 16-70mm f2.8 VR DX even if this be 2/3 as big and 2/3 the weight of the 70-200mm f/2.8!

I should add then that FX body has a nuanced capability that DX cannot match, specially when shooting wide-open at low-light situations.  Yet it is ultimately our capabilities, our imagination, our "photographer's eye" that would make our photos.  In this, there is no substitute to applying oneself out there, then constantly critiquing one's work, studying and learning from others, to elevate our skill to the point where our equipment would be a less important preoccupation.  For a gearhead like me, I will not dismiss the importance of having the right gears ... but the photographer's skill, experience, imagination and vision comes first.  Whew ... ang haba yata ng sinabi ko!   ;) :D ;D

Hi Felix,

This seems to be a problem with the early production units.  I understand that the newer production units no longer has this problem as Canon has changed the focusing motor.  This bit of info of course brings no comfort to your friend.

I am surprised that the repair took that long though since this is a well-known problem that afflicts the early units of this lens.

I think it is the usual case kung walang parts na available. The USB port of my HG20 was damaged and it took Canon 2 months to replace it. The glass screen of my LX3 had a deep scratch and I was uncomfortable with it so I have it change at Panasonic and it took 2 mos for the parts to arrive. Those services are very expensive and maybe not the best but at least meron kahit matagal. Did I complain? No not a bit because there is no use in doing so.I know these campanies,even Canon have some problems.It is good for my health and good for my GAS in case....I will get something new. Honey, wala na raw parts, can I buy a new one? ;D :D ;) ::)

A Nikon D700s should cost about USD $3000-$3200.  A D700x would probably be in the $4500-$5,000 range as the price difference between D3s and D3x is approx. $2,500-3000.  I wonder whether those clamoring for the D700x will be willing to buy this model at this price range. 

The price would drop within 6-9 months after the initial introduction.  The question Doc is, if nikon ever introduces the D700s, are you willing to wait that long?  Ha ha ha ha!   ;D

@LGO - yes, 2 bodies that had some issues. The cost of repair is more than half of the resale value. I love my Nikon gear especially after trying to build up my lens line-up. It is not just cost effective for me now. My little 1000D has been used more and is older than the two Nikons but its still alive and kicking.

I'll still retain a Nikon and a lens or two  ;D

Gonna get me one of those 550D so that I can see 1st hand what the D90 was lacking in terms of video. Hope the D90 replacement can address that.

Now, I just have to learn what a 450D-550D-40D-7D-5D looks like when looking at them at a far as I really can't see much difference.

Hi Ryan,

Do drop us a note or two about the Canon video capabilities once you get into the groove of this.  We will always have a ready ear to listen to your initial foray into this area.

Glad to know you will still retain a Nikon body with a lens or two.  You have always been a great example of how to eke out the best from our Nikon when it comes to manual-focusing lenses and I would like to see more great photos from you in this regard.  Many thanks for this.

Inspired by your example, I have been using my Zeiss 100mm f/2.8 more frequently now for applications other than portrait.  I plan to do the same with my 105mm f/2.5 AI-S and 180mm f/2.8 AI-S.

LGO

You got to remember that the D300s/ D700 don't have Auto, P, and Scene exposure modes.  The left dial layout of the D300s and D700 are pretty much based on the layout of the D3 (a.k.a. semi-pro/ pro usage).

Looks like the Nikonrumors website is down ... overloaded!

Though some may not like it, I like the shape of the SB700.  Its not as big as I had feared so this looks like a good alternative to the SB900 when I need a smaller flash.  It also has a built-in diffuser.  What I am keen on seeing is the controls at the back ... whether these looks like those found in the SB900.

Another link to the D7000 in case the NR link is not working as it is overloaded:

More info on the D7000 ... dual SD card according to one website.  

The D7000 looks good ... the rear panel has many similarities to the D300/D300s.

The absence of a dedicated AF-on button is going to be missed for those used to this button on the D300/D300s/D700.  Perhaps the AE-L AF-L can double as the AF-on button?  I hope so as I use this button a lot.

Does the D90 have mirror-lockup? I hope that the D7000 has one.  If the D90 does not have one and the D7000 has this, then landscape and travel photographers who will get the D7000 will have a reason to rejoice in the D7000.

The $800-1000 question for many (expected price difference from the expected D300-replacement) ... is whether this body will have a micro-AF adjustment.

this seems to be a worthy successor to the D90...after the cold upgrade of the D300,kailangan nang pagbutihin ng nikon ang kanilang design ::) im very much interested in the video since now that i only have the D700 with me, nabitin ako nun kailangan ko gumawa ng effects test this week :'(

And then a new rumor about the D300s-replacement emerges on November that this will have 61AF points, with 1080p 60fps HD-video, and will have native 8fps burst speed on CH, built-in GPS, better low-light performance than the D7000 by perhaps as much as 1/3 to 1/2 stop .... among others.

Yup!   Visualize these:

The Nikon D4 in 3Q 2011.

Given that the D7000 puts it above the D90 but below the D300s, a D300s-replacement is very likely come out by 3Q 2011.

There would also be a model that would slot between the D3100 and D7000, perhaps the D5100.  I expect this sometime in 1H of 2011.  

Then there is also the Nikon LIVE (or EVIL) camera system.

Many here are also awaiting the D700-replacement whether in D700s and/or D700x.  This should be announced no later than 1H 2011 though I am hoping it will be sooner.

One model that will most likely be a big hit if Nikon decides to release this is a less-expensive more compact FX camera in the body-size of a D90.  This is uncertain ... but Nikon should know that it will be a big hit if it makes this.

The D7000 looks great with all the necessary control dials ... as does the SB700.

Front view photo shows that the D7000 missing the 2nd function button present in front and besides the lens on the D300/D300s.  But wait ... there is a button below the lens on the right side of the camera, the same side where the 1st function button is located but beneath the lens.  I wonder what function this can be used for?  Hmmmm .... very good! 

D7000 is very exciting! 

I wonder if the wipe-blur on the photo of the D7000 means that a new DX kit lens will also be available with the D7000?   ;)

I just noticed that the SB700 has 2 new control buttons that the SB900 does not have.  These can be seen 1 on each side.

Wow ... the SB700 is even better than I thought! 

Its going to be an agonizing wait till November when the SB700 will be available for those who need a new Nikon flash!   ??? ::) ??? ::) 8) :o

Then yes ... it would be the ring type.

Please note however that the Nikon D300/D700 uses a triangle-type extender where the camera strap is hooked to.  It also has a plastic guide that prevents rotation which can cause scratches to the body's finishing near the mounting points.

personally i like the following:

1. HD video with AF
2. 100% viewfinder
3. dual SD slots.
4. weather sealing/magnesium alloy

coming from D80/D90, this is a worthy upgrade. sulit na sulit ito. ram-dam mo upgrade!

taken from chase jarvis crew RE, ISO performance

scott rinckenberger Tuesday - 14th of September, 2010 at 9:27 pm  #

Great low light performance. Holds up for commercial to 1600-3200. Very usable for other applications at 6400. Same league as the D3 line.


scott rinckenberger Tuesday - 14th of September, 2010 at 9:35 pm  #

The ISO performance is comparable. The caveat being that the larger pixels on the D3 sensor will render a slightly smoother looking image at the same ISO because the grain pattern is not as tight.

Hey, I am not whining, this is a great new camera not a d90 upgrade. Officially from Nikon, it is in between the d90 and d300s. Shall I wait for more features? I might end up waiting forever!!! So let is sing together now: " resistance is futile"...ha ha ha ha...this is good octoberfest, though I don't drink!!!Calamansi, anyone?

The SB700 seems a shrunken sb900!!!

@Felix: compared the SB-900 and SB-700 - better ang controls ng SB-700 but the GN and range ng SB-900 mas malakas talaga. I think I'll keep my SB-900s and add one SB-700. The SU-800 will go when the time comes! ;D

sa mga hindi na nakapaghintay dati at nakipagsapalaran sa kabilang kampo, bukas ang ating For Sale thread.. :P

kaso pre yung d300s isang generation behind dito... IMO, pro grade yung gusto mo eh hintay na lang sa sunod ... at malamang FX na yon.

sa specs ng d7000, e pang giyera na to... dual SD slots, metal frame, 1/250s xsync, stereo mic input ... (sorry can't help it...) itim na shutter button ...

tapos yung field tester sabi pa yung ISO performance e comparable to d3 ...

Well, Nikon is late into the video game but the D7000 is very competitive with the Canon 550/7d. I think the people that dumped their Nikon gears to switch to Canon made an expensive mistake.  

It doesn't make sense to switch because the DSLR tech rat race is fluid that the players eventually tie each other in terms of capabilities and features.

The SB700 is even better than I thought. Well, it is now a viable alternative to the SB800.

D7000 + D700. Lucky 7 compacts. Perfect partner ito for travel. :D Nikon made another reason why the dx-format is something that can't just be left behind. ;D

I might, just might... get the D7000 to pair with my D700.  

FX=UWA DX=Tele & Prime HD Movies!

but if the D700 replacement comes out, paktay nanaman! lolz...

ako lang ha, IMO  ;D    D300s nalang ako.  :D  (para maiba, kokontra ako...)  ;)

D300s and D7000 (parehong specs):
- Nikon Multi-CAM3500 DX
- Min/max shutter
- 100% viewfinder
- 3" LCD

D300s
- bigger, beefier, pro-build
- slightly larger sensor
- faster fps, by 1

D7000
- higher MP
- 1920x1080 video
- dual SD slot

how much D300s ngayon? 60K?

if D7000 so about 55K to 60K si D7000?

I'm thinking same IQ... I maybe wrong...

FX padin.  ;)

Note: this is my thoughts as of now. Maybe when 13th month bonus comes, mag-d7000 bibidyo-bidyo nadin ako...   :D

I didn't see it in the spec sheet from DPreview. Does it support CSL/AWL?

What I don't like: the rubber doors for the HDMI,Mic,Shutter Cable, A/V, USB. If the rubber doors of the D80 are to be used as benchmark, it's no good, if you frequently use those ports. Sa D80 ko lagi ko gamit yung shutter release cable, medyo loose na yung rubber door covering that port.

You have a valid point...

D300s sells for about 63k body only

Then the D7000 will sell for about 54k?   Less than 10k difference?

It all boils down to some minute details (i.e. HD video, SD or CF, etc)

Even with d7000.... Still not regretting my shift to Canon 7d. My reasons are purely economic and a bit of lens choices. But still i still have my d700 with me. So will concentrate on buying expensive full frame lense for my d700. Then will concentrate getting a wide lens for my 7d. But damn!!! ... that 35mm is starting to look good on my d700 eh? =P

pana-panahon lang yan... surely the 7dmk2 will be better the d7000. They (canon) would not allow releasing a newer product that is inferior to the current offering of its biggest competitor.

also, how can you compare a 7d and d7000 especially since the 7d is now at the same price of how the new d7000 will be?

pre... saan may 7d na nasa 50,000~60,000 na price range ? 75k ngayon yung 7d sa henry's

canon will always be known for pioneering video

video sa slr ? akala ko d90 ang nauna ??? But canon always have an edge with its experience in the video department...

got mine for 56k in HK

as for video, the 5dmk2 is the first in its class to support 1080p video recording announced just 2 weeks after the d90.

Yes, that's right, Canon is always step ahead and we are thankful for that. Otherwise, Nikon and other companies will be sleeping even when their diapers were wet!!!

I hope Canon will release the 5dMk3 with the AF inside of the 7D and the IQ of 1dMK IV. So Nikon will change his diapers even before it gets soak!!!

Please no flaming and teasing!!! Just enjoy the moment after a day or 2 the excitement will mellow down and we will be falling back to earth!!! :-* ::) ;D :D

In my opinion, this is the reason why Nikon bodies hold up better resale values. You can still see D80 bodies sold not lower than 20k.

So much has been said about this wonderful camera. Ngayon ang aabangan naman natin ay kung sino dito sa pipho ang kauna-unahan na magkakaroon ng d7000. ;D ;D ;D

Ang malaking hula ko dito...

...si LGO! Tapos si Doc Retina ;D

got mine for 56k in HK

ayos ah... panalo ang lahat kung bumaba ng ganyan ang 7d... Sana maging ganyan na rin sa hidalgo para madali lang mag-warranty claim.

Canon users will be able to get xd class body at rock bottom prices.

New users with the budget of 50k to 60k for a body will have a hard time choosing between the two.

Sa mga balak bumili ng d7000.. hintay rin lang ng konti para mag-stabilize yung presyo ... expect price drops within 6 months of release.

In my opinion, this is the reason why Nikon bodies hold up better resale values. You can still see D80 bodies sold not lower than 20k.

You have a valid point...

D300s sells for about 63k body only

Then the D7000 will sell for about 54k?   Less than 10k difference?

It all boils down to some minute details (i.e. HD video, SD or CF, etc)

Pang-gulo lang, maging KJ....

I had the D90 before, and was choosing to upgrade to D300.  I waited.  When D300s came, I was about to buy na, but hours of googling and researching, I decided I want a "REAL" upgrade.  Yes the the D300s had weather sealing, newer video, etc.  But I knew for fact that ISO performance is almost/practically the same (to the naked eye). Yes newer DX models might have better ISO handling, but probably due to NR technology.  

So, from a non-pro/non-techy's point of view, with hours spent reading Kenrockwell.com :D (joke!), I went FX.

:D

Yes the D7000 will have tons of newer features when compared to the D700.  But, FF is FF. Period. :D

;)

Can't wait for the Xmas bonus to come. I will get a D7000.  

ang labo. hahahaha!

This is like we are partying online to celebrate Nikon's new products!!!

Jordan ... among everyone here, I expect that you will be the first to get this new camera!  Your phone call to Singapore must have cost a fortune eh?  Ha ha ha ha!  

My credit card that is all black and blue from all my lens purchase midyear, just got hit again with the 85mm f/1.4G, 24-120mm, and the 28-300mm.   It will suffer ever more still with the SB700 so I am studiously avoiding looking at the 35mm f/1.4G.  ::)  8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)

I will definitely get the D7000 ... but I will do my best (ehem ... yes, famous last words, I know I know I know I know  :P ) to wait for the price to drop a bit.  While waiting, I will be tweedling my thumb for the D700s that Nikon will surely release, hopefully sooner than later.   8)

Actually, the yearly replacement cycle of Canon is one reason why I stuck to Nikon. Makes you feel less regretful about your recent purchases.

If you are using the SB800 as a master wireless commander and do not need the power of the SB800 yet want the new features of the SB700 (specially the excellent user interface), then perhaps this makes sense if you can get a good price from your SB800.  

But if you need the power of the SB800, then perhaps not as even with its current user interface, the SB800 remains an excellent flash unit.

i would say definitely.

a point to ponder, coming from D90 with kit (18-105vr), is it worth the upgrade? or should one buy a lens nalang?

hahahaha! sorry, nang-gugulo lang... :D

seriously, i think its a jump/upgrade na sulit.  nung panahon ng D80 vs D90, medyo okay na jump na.  But this D90 to D7000, is a huge leap.  

I remember when I bought my D80, got it for 49.5K sa Henry's.  Then when the D90 came, 49K.  I bought them approx 6 months after first release.  so kung 55K yung D7000, after 6 months, mga nasa 40-42K range yan.

then after 3-4 years, 20K nalang resale value. hahahahah! so lente nalang bilhin natin! hahahaha!

Haha!

Seriously speaking, I don't have any intention to go back to DX.

I just use my D90 for travel due to lighter weight and excellent focal range DX lenses. But the new 24-120mm f/4G VR makes my D700 a much better option to bring along. Couple that with a lighter SB-700 and this setup is simply great!

The next body I would get would be the D700's replacement. ;D ;D ;D

Or, puwede ring huwag na ang 24-120 tapos D7000 nalang, lalo na kung super linis ang High ISO! Haha! (Nahawa ako sayo Edwink!)

With the introduction of the SB700 and its better interface (ala sb900), prospective nikon flash buyers will have a better choice in the market this holiday season...

its very difficult to fins a decent sb800 in mint / perfect condition in the ifs threads... prices of the sb800 ranges in the 14~16k range...

for that amount (almost 300USD) one would now have a good alternative in the form of the SB700... New flash unit with 1 year store warranty pa...

sb600 prices are now selling at about 11.5k in hidalgo... about 250 USD...

Nikon SB700 flash will surely be a welcome product this holiday season... ;D   Sana mga 16k BNEW price for the SB700... That would be a very good price point for a NIKON FLASH unit like the SB700  ;D

This makes sense if you want the following:

- 16mp sensor
- improved low-light performance
- HD-video (only D300s has this)
- smaller, lighter package than D300

Note that a D300 owner who also owns a D700 will need some learning and adjusting to the D7000 controls but this should not be too difficult.

For many here thus, the answer would be yes!

Given how good the D7000 is, I suspect that Nikon will have to kick upstairs the D300-replacement.  This likely means an even better AF than the current D300/D300s, perhaps a 1/3-1/2 stop improvement in low-light performance (but even if its the same as the D7000, it should still be great), at least 8fps in continuous shooting, even better video capabilities, etc.  

To compete with the Canon 7D and possibly the 1D Mk4, Nikon may even put this in a D3/D3s like body.  Please note that I am just speculating here even if it makes sense since the D7000 will do battle with the 60D from above and the 7D from below.  Nikon needs something to fight the 7D from above and the 1d Mk4 from below ... and this will likely be the shape of the D300-replacement.

Magandang news yan if the SB800 prices would start selling at 12k-13k

Unlikely.  the SB800 has a higher power rating (and would easily match the SB900 except that the SB900 has the advantage of a 200mm zoom).


specially if the sb700 would sell at 15k~16k

Very likely.  P15,000 would be a reasonable price.   ;D

Some helpful D7000 features for landscape and travel photographers:


Some helpful D7000 features for landscape and travel photographers:


1.   4.2mp more (likely also improved color depth and dynamic range due to EXPEED 2)

2.   ISO 100

3.   Mirror-lockup

4.   Depth of field preview button 

5.   Virtual Horizon

6.   Wireless remote control (using ML-L3)
      - no more fumbling in the dark to attach the remote shutter release
      - great when combined with mirror lock-up  (yes!!!  :D)

7.    Infrared receiver in front and at the rear  (yes!!!  :D) 

8.    Dedicated live-view button

9.    Enhanced Active D-Lighting (ADL) capabilities***
       -useful if you know when and how to use this

10   Retouch menu: Straighten Image Function

(http://imaging.nikon.com/products/imaging/lineup/digitalcamera/slr/d7000/img/features05/img_14a.png)


***Enhanced Active D-Lighting (ADL) capabilities

Nikon USA:

"The D7000 employs the new image-processing engine "EXPEED 2". This achieves higher-performance noise reduction, improved color reproduction, high-speed image processing and enhanced movie-processing performance and efficient energy saving with a smaller engine chip than that of the D90. And there is no reduction in continuous shooting frame rate even when high ISO noise reduction or Active D-Lighting is activated."

"Nikon's exclusive Active D-Lighting offers the ability to preserve details in the highlights and shadowy areas of images shot in high-contrast scenes such as those that are backlit. ADL levels are selectable from "Auto", "Extra high", "High", "Normal", "Low" and "Off". The D7000 employs a new image-processing system that produces less color phase shift even when the ADL level is increased. Furthermore, it realizes high-speed, real-time processing with high accuracy within image-processing pipelines. The D7000 also allows you to bracket for up to 3 frames."

At $330 = P14,850.00, malabong below 15k here in Pinas.  I agree on the SB-800. I plan to keep my SB-800, BUT STILL get the SB-700.

First week, sa unang seller na may stock = PhP 60K+

then 2-3 months 55K.+

6 months 49K.

2-3 years, 20K.  ;D

You are right, sometimes I wonder maybe I am in a wrong hobby!!!
But if you get a low end bodies, the depreciation cost is lower than the high end bodies.
D90= 49 K
then= 32K
then = 20K
You lost about half of you money

d700= 150k
then = 106k
then = 70K

Half then pero mas malaki.

Kaya I buy the most expensive lenses and then just going in the middle for the bodies.
Definitely, I will get the d7k but I will "abang" for one who will be crazy enough to sell a mint d700 at 70-75K.Who cares if it is oldie FX naman and it takes a great image.!!! ;D :D ;)

Unless we are in this for the business, we lose money most of the time when we buy a camera gear.  

It is passion that fuels us in this hobby ... not monetary consideration.  We spend based on what we consider as important ... even if we have to diet on crackers (weight loss as added benefit  ::) ) and continue to drive 10-20 year old vehicles?

How does one value a perfectly captured moment with a family member?    

How about going back in time to the place of an unforgettable moment?  

How about capturing great moments today so one can look back to it in the future?

Waaaaaaaaaaaaiiitt a minute ... !

What are we getting "senti" here for?

We are Nikon gearheads .... and we do not need any of the above justification!!

Just bring that D7000 here .... pronto!!!!!   :o :o :o :o ;D ;D ;D ;D

hahaha! ganda ng analysis mo bro. ayus yan, napapa taas ang morale naming mga budget conscious. hehehe!

seriously, if one has the kit lens, and say a 50mm and speedlight, mounted on a D90... why jump to D7000?

(not addressed to you ha?)

for the added MP?  - 3MP can print billboards (nung unang panahon). mag priprint ka ba ng billboard?
39AF points - gagamitin mo ba lahat yun? eh concentrated in the middle lang sila? pag lagpas sa frame, lock-recompose ka din.
higher ISO limit?  - yes malinis, but sharp ba sya? kutob ko dyan, noise reduction will eat the IQ
Dual SD? - baket? wala ka bang lalagyan ng SD card sa bag? 2x16GB sasalpak mo? ilang model ba kaya mo ishoot in one day?
AF video? - mag shooshoot ka ba ng teleserye for GMA7? or family short clips lang?
magnesium alloy/weather sealing? - mag shoot ka ba sa bagyo? eh yung lente mo ba weather sealed din?

ang nagustuhan ko lang yung 100% viewfinder.  :D

kaya bibile ako nito pag laki ko! :D :D :D

edwin, yung dual SD useful yun not because you will shoot a lot but for backup purposes.  pwedeng mirror copy yung 2nd SD card :)  if in case 1 SD card fails you still have copies on the 2nd SD  :)  :P  bili bili na!!  :)

 ;D ;D ;D Naka-appeal sa kin ng husto ay yung dual SD at high iso. I don't care about noise. As events photog what I care most is that I got the shot. Tapos yung dual sd is a great backup feature. Naging kahiya hiya na ako one time sa isang kliyente dahil nacorrupt yung sd at di ko na maretreive yung images.

Others:
Metering on AIS. Useful for me at magagamit ko na yung old school lenses ng may metering. And I can manually focus better because of the 100% viewfinder.  ;D

i think that the D700 will still stay competitive. pero nakaka sindak isipin na kailangan mas mabangis specs nya kaysa sa D7000 :o :o :o hindi pa naman ako natatakot since mauuna pang lalabas yun D4, yun D700s/x mukhang alanganin in the few more months to come. wala pang ingay e.

iniisip ko is kung bakit hindi na nag all the way ang nikon sa video nito to 60fps. naging conservative sila.

sa 1k intro price nya, sure winner ito...a very worthy successor to the D90 na super value

Hahaha! oo nga naman, specially ung weather sealing. bat ka nga naman magsshoot kapag may bagyo! whahaha! :D  :D  :D

Weather sealing is important even if you do not shoot in the rain.  In addition to the dust protection, you need to consider how useful it can be for regular use.  For example:

I use mild liquid soap and water to clean the rubber components of my D300, D700 nd MB-D10 every time I return home or to the hotel room at the end of a day's shoot.  This keeps the salt from our perspiration away from the rubber which can cause it to go sticky and quickly deteriorate.

Furthermore .. you have yet to experience how creative one can be shooting in the bathtub and in the showers!   ;) :D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

For that, you need your camera to be weather sealed!  Ha ha ha ha!   ;D

The SB700 would surely reduce the prices of the SB800 which are selling are more or less their purchase price even when they are used. That's why I resisted getting a 2nd hand SB800.

ok, time to be serious...

why one should upgrade from D90 to D7000.

The thought of having additional features, that will make your photogaphy simpler, knowing that you can boost ISO if the situation requires it, knowing you can crop a car race shot to "zoom" in a little with still good IQ/MP to spare, shooting on the sides a friend's wedding in HD video - beating the official photogs on-site vid, convenience of sorting your image and video file on 2 separate SD's (or 1 as backup), that you can shoot Higantes festival even if it's drizzling, DOF button for checking the bokeh of your beloved 50mm before shooting, selling your cute bubble level spirit level since you don't need it anymore, can't get the right exposure of the washed out sky - turn on max the Active D-lighting and shoot...

and above all... shooting with a new camera, that you have worked so hard for.

Time to reward yourself.  ;)

Go get a D7000 and face the mirror, and see how good it looks on you. aminin, ginagawa nyo ito!  :D

Oh my. Where did this news came from?  I guess I haven't been active lately in the forum.  >:(  I had to check it out on Nikon USA website myself.  The Nikon SB 700 is about $330. USD.  The D7000 is around $1,200. USD.  I must admit that this is just overwhelming from Nikon (in a good way).  All of the haters and complainers demands are being met with the new goodies.  Of course people will still complain about the higher price tag.  The Nikon 200mm is a little over kill since it is already a sharp lens.  The Nikon 35mm f1.4 is another great welcome addition.  It looks like Nikon Rumors have been spot on with their predictions.

The only good thing is that my birthday and Christmas are not so far away.  ;D  I need to show my wish list to my wife.  ;D ::)

You are very transparent with your intentions with the Samyang 85mm f/1.4 and upcoming 35mm f/1.4!  
Yes if the Nikkor 85mm 1.4 AF-S won't snare me!! The 70-200Vr2 is very good for my portrait shots already. Samyang will be just a fun lens for me...something that I can take my time.
I hope to hear from your 85 1.4 AF-S in two weeks time. ;D ;D ;D.....Zeiss , is something to consider!!!

Oh my. Where did this news came from?  I guess I haven't been active lately in the forum.  >:(  I had to check it out on Nikon USA website myself.  The Nikon SB 700 is about $330. USD.  The D7000 is around $1,200. USD.  I must admit that this is just overwhelming from Nikon (in a good way).  All of the haters and complainers demands are being met with the new goodies.  Of course people will still complain about the higher price tag.  The Nikon 200mm is a little over kill since it is already a sharp lens.  The Nikon 35mm f1.4 is another great welcome addition.  It looks like Nikon Rumors have been spot on with their predictions.

The only good thing is that my birthday and Christmas are not so far away.  ;D  I need to show my wish list to my wife.  ;D ::)




Glenn ... get that wallet out and bring on the SB700!

And you can always get your wife a D7000 for Christmas ... then forget to return it to her just as CVN73 leaves port!  Ha aha hah hahah!  ;) ;) ;) :D :D :D ;D ;D ;D

LGO. You know me.  I'm like FPJ or Lito Lapid na mabilis kumalabit ng baril, I meant credit card.  ;D  SB 700 is definitely a must buy for me since I need one.  Just like what Retina mentioned, the D7000 does not interest or excites me since I am extremely happy with the D700.  I think my wife would rather have a Nikon 85mm f1.4G for Christmas? He he he.  ;D

BTW. I heard "Amazon" is taking pre-orders... :o

Glenn .. get going with your pre-order with the SB700 in Amazon as the line will be long!  If you want to help Nikno Rumor, start with your order by clicking through its website so it gets a little bit of credit from Amazon.

Re your Christmas gift for your wife ... I am sure that she would just love the new Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G!   :D

Then ... when your ship departs, she will lovingly ask you to loan her your D700 to use with her new 85mm f/1.4G lens ... ha ha ha ha!   ;D ;D ;D

as for the sb700, please take note of the following

taken from strobist.com

In Sync

• 2.5 sec recycle w/NiMH (3 w/alkaline)
• SB-900 control interface (knobs and switches)
• FX/DX chip size recognition for on-camera beam spread
• Can be a Master and Remote flash for CLS users (but only controls two groups)
• Beam shaping, like the SB-900
• Quick Wireless Mode lets you dial in A:B ratios. Kinda Canon-ish, IMO.


two groups ? ... pwede na rin siguro...
A:B ratio mode ? .... o please... why ? why ? why ? Might as well have auto settings like butterfly mode, high contrast, or mcnally numnuts mode etc...

pero may bonus na SU4 mode  :)

At least alam ng wifey na camera ang hilig ni Glenn!!!Ha ha ha ha OT na but d700 for you and d7000 for the wifey. Better still allow her to like your d700 so you can get d700/s / 800 or whatever name they will use to call it. Kung pwede lang we can greedily get the Sb700, 24 1.4, 35 1.4, 50 1.4 85 1.4 and the 200 2.0...that's optimus prime  ;D :D ;D

Anu kaya features ng D400 at D700 successor?

Anu na lang advantage ng D300s sa D7000? AF-On, Non CPU lens tsaka AF fine-tuning?

eto sir para makatipid... kahit sb700 na lang muna , mag 900 lang kung kailangan talaga (like in my case, walang commander mode ang d40)

may commander mode naman yung d90 eh. Pwede nang magsimula doon ... kayang kaya 3 light setup (may fineprint caveats nga lang) ! sb700 off camera key, popup fill, 3rd yung sun to act as separation / rim

The SB700 is a no-brainer purchase if you need a new flash.  

A purchase of 2 x SB700 would be a nice setup but as the price of the SB900 has also dropped considerably, a dual purchase of 1 x SB900 and 1 x SB700 would still be a good alternative.  The reason for this is so that one would still have the ability to control 3 groups instead of just 2 groups (the case when using the SB700).  The SB900 also has the power to help "overpower" the sun when needed at high shutter speed which the SB700 will have some difficulty doing when shooting at FP.

Since the SB700 is not yet available, one might as well get the SB900 now then get the SB700 when it is available in late November-early December.  Now this is what is otherwise known as a BI (Glenn ... that's BI, not "bi-"  and thus not that other meaning ok?  ;D )   Hey ... I should ask for a  commission here from the sellers of these flash units ... ha ha ha ha!

Me for complex lightning?  More like confused lighting!  

The masters here are still Mark and the other master strobist from Pipho.  I am just a beginner still ... though now itching to get my hands on Radio Popper's PX system now that I have confirmed that RF can work simultaneously with the IR from Nikon's CLS/AWL so that some flash will be on RF while others are on IR.  But that's more black and blue body blows to my credit card and outside this thread so I better quit here while I am (barely) ahead.   ;D

You might as well include the following in your shopping list:

  2 x SB700 (light and fast)
  1 x 35mm f/14G  (wide and fast)
  1 x 200mm f/2.0G VR II (long and fast)

Comparo: SB-900 vs SB-800 vs SB-700

Guide Number:
  SB-900: 34M/111.5' (ISO 100), 48M/157.5' (ISO 200) zoom head set at 35mm position,
               FX format, Standard illumination pattern
  SB-800: 38M/125' (ISO 100 with zoom head set at 35mm)
  SB-700: 28M/92' (ISO 100), 39M/128' (ISO 200) zoom head set at 35mm position,
               FX format, Standard illumination pattern

Note: The SB-900 can zoom to 200mm while the SB-800 can zoom only to 105mm so the SB-900 has a greater effective light yield than the SB-800 when both are zoomed-out to their maximum position.  The SB-900 goes even further when it autosets to the DX format.


Dimensions (W x H x D)

  SB-900: Approx. 78.0 x146.0 x 118.5 mm (3.0 x 5.7 x 4.7 in.)
  SB-800: Approx. 70.5 x 129.5 x 93.0mm (2.8 x 5.1 x 3.7 in.)
  SB-700: Approx. 71 x 126 x 104.5 mm (2.8 x 5.0 x 4.1 in.)


Weight without batteries

  SB-900: Approx. 415 g (14.6 oz.)
  SB-800: Approx. 350g (12.3 oz.)
  SB-700: Approx. 360 g (12.7 oz.)


PC-synch  - important for use with RF triggers (but not Radio Popper's PX System)  ;D
  SB-900: With
  SB-800: With
  SB-700: Without


Provision for connecting an external battery pack  
  SB-900: With
  SB-800: With
  SB-700: Without


Flash Head Zoom  
  SB-900: 17-200mm
  SB-800: 24-105mm*
  SB-700: 24-120mm*

*Note: 17mm, 14mm with built-in wide-flash adapter; 14mm with soft dome


Illumination Pattern
  SB-900: standard, center-weighted and even
  SB-800: standard
  SB-700: standard, center-weighted and even


FX/DX Autp Detect to selects suitable light distribution angle
  SB-900: Yes
  SB-800: No
  SB-700: Yes


The SB-700 can function as a Master Wireless Commander, just like the SB-800 and SB-900.  But the user interface of the SB700 is far more superior to the SB800.  The SB700 even improved on the SB900 user's interface with its dedicated control switch located one each on both sides of the flash unit.

The SB-700 can control only two groups while the SB-800 and SB-900 can control three groups.


@ Mark: I made the comparo. Please feel free to verify and confirm the data.  Feel free to also add other info you think would be helpful.

Doc Tony ... the SB-700 is not smaller or lighter than the SB-800.  Its about the same size and weight with the SB-700 actually being slightly thicker and a trifle bit heavier - both hardly noticeable though.

The Nikkor lens focal length coverage is 24-120mm, a bit better than Canon's 24-105mm.  It also features a 4-stop VR.  The initial review on this by Bjorn Rorslett (though limited by his Non-disclosure agreement with Nikon) of a pre-production version of the lens has been very encouraging and I have one on order already.  

The 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II is also a beauty and which I highly recommend.

Looking at the ff. comparo, one gets the impression that Nikon wants its users to use the Nikon CLS/AWL rather than RF triggers by removing the PC-synch port where the RF triggers are generally connected through. 

PC-synch  - important for use with RF triggers
  SB-900: With
  SB-800: With
  SB-700: Without

While it will be possible for owners of the SB-700 to mount this on an adapter that would provide a PC-synch port, Nikon's removal of this port sends a clear signal as to what it expects from its users.

Does the SB 700 comes with a white diffuser like the SB 800 or SB 900? I like the rotary controls of the SB900 and I'm glad that they designed the SB700 with a user friendly control features.

Re: D7000. Most of it's newer features are from the D700 except that it is a DX format.  Definitely worth the consideration if you are planning on upgrading from a beginner camera.  

OT: LGO please do share some images of the 24-120mm f4 VR once you receive the lens.  I only have the older model but I'm sure the newer model will be a lot better.

Dito pa lang sa thread na ito, alamat na itong camera na ito. ;D Siguro sa dslr video, I think canon will always be a step ahead. Sa nikon kasi I think it's just a sort of a freebie, just an added feature. Anyway ok lang. So that nikon can devote a lot weight for still capture performance. That's what they are known for. :D

grabe andami na atang nangyari! backtracked a bit and d7000 does not disappoint! i almost got me a 550d just to get good video buti na lang!!!

i am lovin' the specs and tulad nga ng sinabi ni chase jarvis... " lets make some art " or not. ;D ;D ;D

basta, i think im gonna enjoy this camera A LOT! ::)

i love my d90 but somehow got a little envious ( a little lang naman ) when i see videos made with canon hdslrs.

patience pays off all the time. waited for this moment and investing in lenses as i wait o so patiently.
 ;D ;D ;D

Dito pa lang sa thread na ito, alamat na itong camera na ito. ;D Siguro sa dslr video, I think canon will always be a step ahead. Sa nikon kasi I think it's just a sort of a freebie, just an added feature. Anyway ok lang. So that nikon can devote a lot weight for still capture performance. That's what they are known for. :D

yan yun sabi nun pres ng nikon. imaging daw talaga di video...o di lang nila kaya hehehe :o :o :o

sana maglive up to expectations yun d7000

the day has come for my D90!! :(  but as i looked at the Nikon site, D7000 is a new level between D90 and D300s.

and judging from the specs, D7000 is looking more like D300s killer? so no word yet on the d700 replacement huh?

Does the SB 700 comes with a white diffuser like the SB 800 or SB 900? I like the rotary controls of the SB900 and I'm glad that they designed the SB700 with a user friendly control features.

Re: D7000. Most of it's newer features are from the D700 except that it is a DX format.  Definitely worth the consideration if you are planning on upgrading from a beginner camera.  

OT: LGO please do share some images of the 24-120mm f4 VR once you receive the lens.  I only have the older model but I'm sure the newer model will be a lot better.  


Re the SB-700, yes, it has the diffuser dome.  But I would suggest that you take advantage of the 3-light patterns of the SB-700 first before using the diffusion dome as not only can it go wide, it will do so without the light-robbing effect of the diffusion dome.  This is what is one of the advantages that the SB-700 (and SB-900) has over the SB-800.

Re the D700 vs the D7000, your comment actually hits the bull-eye for existing D700 owners.  I am still awaiting the word on the GH-2 for video but it does not look promising.  The hacked GH-1 on the other hand can now go up to an incredible bitrate of 84Mbit for AVCHD making it a monster for this application and beating the c-rap out of even Panasonic's upcoming USD$6,000 AG-AF100.  But since I am just dipping my toes on this, I reasoned that the D7000 would be a good way to do it ... no extra money outlay for new lenses and I get a great still compact/light reasonably-priced camera to boot.

Re the 24-120mm f/4 VR, Nikon is still not shipping this out ... giving me hope that Nikkor may yet still have a new FX up its sleeves and will package the 24-120mm as a kit lens.  Photokina is one week off ... so we should know soon enough.

While at it, I might as well share my opinion here that the next D300-replacement will most likely be a D4 in everything but its sensor where it will have a slightly enhanced D7000 sensor. 

So those who need a professional DX body now would likely have to settle for a D300s now since the new one will most likely not be announced till this time next year ... a wait of approx. 14 months.  It will also be much more expensive.

For video, the D7000 is not an equal to the Canon's video dSLR.

But it has the basic minimum: movie-like 24fps in 1080p, manual controls over aperture (before recording), shutter speed (before and during recording) and ISO (before and during recording).  It can also autofocus during recording (albeit slowly).   TV-like 30fps cadence recording is possible in 720p.

Mbit rate info is still not available.  That Nikon did not highlight this means that it is not likely to be anything worth crowing about.

Here is a quick comparo between the D300s vs D7000 for major features
- though you should do your own homework after this:


Sensor: 12mp vs 16mp

ISO: 200-3200 vs 100-6400

HD-video: 1080p needed or not (D300s has 720p 24fps)

AF Points: 51 points (15 cross-type) vs 39 points (9 cross-type)

AF speed: D300s likely to be still faster and more accurate with the same lens for sports

Continuous fps: 7fps or 8fps (with MB-D10) vs 6 fps

Storage: CF/SD vs SD/SD

Size/weight:
some like smaller and lighter
                   some like bigger as it is easier to hold even without battery grip

Controls: D300s has a bit more dedicated control switches

Price/Value:
- D300s price now at rock bottom; D7000 will likely command a premium
- D7000 will likely devalue faster than the D300s within the next 6 months          

Availability: D300s available now, D7000 likely late October-early November

Others:
Transition: Going from a D300s to a D700 is easier than from a D7000 to a D700
Accessories: battery, charger, MB-D10 usable and shareable with both D300s and D700
                            D7000 has a new charger and battery

D300s owners have no reason to downgrade but should just wait for their replacement models and should save now because it will be very expensive.

Video on the d7000 has improved but I don't think it is something to rave about. The Canon's video still the better one even on the 550D. However, I am one of those clumsy , awkward and impatient video users that thinks using my DSLR to take video is very hard.Even to those who are into it are using enhancing gears to make it usable. I will wait for the day that they will change the format to finally converge video and stills conforming to the human anatomy and make it as easy as the video cam.

After the smoke settles down, who among you will grab this one? I think the crowd will most likely come from d90 users and below and some who are looking for back up bodies. Shifters? I don't think this will entice Canon users to shift, besides if they are looking for a Camera like this one the 60D and 7D are smiling at them!!Peace to all!!!

morning! it seems that the dust has not yet settled on these new offerings from Nikon.  :D

actually in my opinion, it's not a debate who's got the best features like comparing the D300s to the D7000; rather, i'm just hopeful (and looking forward) to more affordable DX body choices for Nikon consumers like us - imagine our beloved sukis bringing down the price of the D300s to a few thousand pesos lower to compete with D7000 sales... us Nikonians would benefit from 2 feature-laden DX bodies at prices that are lower than the 7D of Canon!  ;D

knowing Nikon, the D7000 WILL deliver, and then some. i predict that after its price has stabilized, it will usher in new enthusiasts to the craft like the D40 and D90 did before it. pipho will then need to prepare for a new influx of forum members eager to learn, share and enliven the passion.  :) ;)

regarding the SB-700, i doubt it's price will be comparable to the SB-600; it's too much feature laden to be labeled simply as a -600 replacement - indeed Nikon doesn't market it as such. maybe the introductory price will hover somewhere between 15-16k; not bad considering that aside from the glaring lack of PC jack (still a legacy interface from the old days of flash photography which Nikon i assume hopes to eliminate so that their CLS system will be seriously used by consumers) and power, the -700 could be considered at most on par or slightly better than the -800 in some respects.

With the dual-SD card slots, are SD cards up to "pro standards" in terms of reliability?  Seems Nikon believes so.

LOL. buti nalang nagiipon na ko. hay.. 85mm f1.4D or D7000??? wah. ang hirap ng buhay haha..

hahahaha... Start small... then finish big...  Maganda talaga yang 85 1.4 AFD but its a bit pricey at about 45k...  I suggest you start at the 85 1.8 afd + the D7K... or maybe a D300s

estimated cost...

85 1.8 AFD = 18k
D7000 = 50k
D300s = 62k

About 68k for the D7k and 85 1.8 setup

or

About 80k for the d300s and 85 1.8 setup

Both are excellent dslr gear ;D

Pag nagsawa at may extra funds...sell the 85 1.8 and buy the 1,4 version ;D

Kaya ginandahan na ng Nikon yong features kasi para di mapulaan ang video ng d7000  ;D :D ;) ::)
Unlike the 60D which will inherit the video features of other Canon siblings plus the articulating screen. Parang marketing points ng both companies but a photographer will really choose the d7000. I may sound like a fan boy but in reality I am really one. ;D ;D ;D. The d7000 for me seems like a little version of d300s plus a better hi-iso features!!!Kaya after the smokes settles down it will be a contest between d7000 and d300s. Never mind the 60D or 7D, we can't stick our Nikkor lenses on them. ;D :D ;) ;D

i think, now that this body has an alloy cage, more AF points, dial like the pros, the d300s/d700 replacement is a fusion of the 2

hence, a new cheaper FF body (totally disrupting the competition)

Actually you can stick nikon lenses on canon with an adapter, but not canon lenses on nikon bodies.  ;D ;D

The D7000 rocks the competition (no brand mention please) ... and elevates the DX battle to a whole new level together.  The D300-replacement will convincingly crush any other player still wobbling after the D7000 is unleashed.

Add to that is the release of the D700s and D700x late this year or early next year.  

But what would really bring the whole enchilada down is if Nikon inserts an FX sensor in the D7000 body, and charge just an extra $300-$500 for it!


Heeeyy ...... I need to calm down!

A baby FX in a D7000 body will be a BIG hit .. but I do not think that Nikon is willing to sacrifice its current margin yet on FX by down-streaming the D3/D700 sensor to a D7000 body ... until perhaps it has released the D700s .. then maybe, just maybe, there will be a slim chance of this happening.   ;D

The Ai-s compatibility and AF fine tuning in the d7k was just my speculation and it did happen. I never expected it to have. As if Nikon has eyes and ears on us   ;D :D ;) ::) he he he. I filled up the survey forms by the way when it was sent to me. Ahhhh that sounds like a fan boy song...anyway it is OK to be one basta you don't bash on other brands. Let me sing and dance in my own backyard, Larry.After the hang over, I've decided to move on and I won't get the d7k right away.

if nikon d7000 can make same noise image at same ISO with d700 they why would people upgrade to FX when they can get the same low light performance on this new d7000...

d7000 is really tempting....but i'll wait for d300s upgrade baka 1 to 2 stop cleaner images pa hehehe

anu kaya kayang gawin ng 2016 rgb sensor of d7000 compared to the 1005 rgb sensor of d300s?

there is more to a camera than just an ISO performance...a D700 FX camera is still better than D7000...although admittedly the feature gap is less for now..once the Pro level DX and FX line refresh it's a whole new ballgame.

Add to that is the release of the D700s and D700x late this year or early next year.  

and the still lingering question... will they reuse the d3s or d3x sensor on the d700 successor ? They have already given the d3100 and d7000 new sensors and not hand me downs like what they did before. My bet will be a whole new sensor.

But what would really bring the whole enchilada down is if Nikon inserts an FX sensor in the D7000 body, and charge just an extra $300-$500 for it!

Please not before 2014... Got my current d40 mid 2007. Will get the d7000 late 2010 or early 2011. I can't justify spending for another one prior to 2014 !!!

lumalabas na ang nasa forum na to, pang d7000.

Iba kasi yung target market ng d3100. Malay mo, baka d3100 ang hot topic ng mga sunday football moms... heheheh

if nikon d7000 can make same noise image at same ISO with d700 they why would people upgrade to FX when they can get the same low light performance on this new d7000...

sir comparable... not same. Wala pa rin tatalo sa current d700/d3s sensors sa low light performance.

but IMO, releasing a higher density sensor AND increasing ISO performance as well is already a major feat. Something like they did back with the sensor of the d300, which was improved further (via software) on the d90.

For me, increased ISO performance for me is cleaner images at higher ISO, not just the availability of high ISO on the menu.

Masaya ako sa ISO800 ng d40 ko. I'm satified with samples of d90 at ISO1600. Panalo na talaga kung ok yung ISO3200 ng d7000

Even with D90 ISO3200, if you get "lucky" you can get a good and clean image. ;D

I believe one of the deal breaker for some is the ability of the D7000 to AF and AI lenses.

ah, basta ako, dahil sa advent ng mga new gen na dslrs, at kung nagbagsakan na un price ng d700's, i will be one happy boy!

right now, i'm already happy with the results and can definitely get by just with the results of the D700. kaya given the chance to grab a 2nd body at a cheaper rate, SOOOLET! :D

and for all the others aspiring to go FX, that means, pwede na kumuha ng FX cam at a cheaper price! :D nyehe!!! :D

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!

Although, if feel nyo, di bababa un price ng D700, edi wishful thinking lang pala ako! haha...

Kaya ginandahan na ng Nikon yong features kasi para di mapulaan ang video ng d7000  ;D :D ;) ::)
Unlike the 60D which will inherit the video features of other Canon siblings plus the articulating screen. Parang marketing points ng both companies but a photographer will really choose the d7000. I may sound like a fan boy but in reality I am really one. ;D ;D ;D. The d7000 for me seems like a little version of d300s plus a better hi-iso features!!!Kaya after the smokes settles down it will be a contest between d7000 and d300s. Never mind the 60D or 7D, we can't stick our Nikkor lenses on them. ;D :D ;) ;D


Deym, D3100 is cool with AF movie mode.

D7000 got us all psych up with AF movie mode + AI compatibility

Now what will NIKON brings us in exchange of the D700 ???

I am pretty sure that everyone is holding their tails ...

d7000 is really tempting....but i'll wait for d300s upgrade baka 1 to 2 stop cleaner images pa hehehe

anu kaya kayang gawin ng 2016 rgb sensor of d7000 compared to the 1005 rgb sensor of d300s?



One-stop improvement in low-noise performance means doubling the sensor's ability to handle noise, and two-stop means quadrupling that.  A one-stop improvement is huge ...... really huge leap forward.  It is unlikely thus that this will be happening from the D7000 to the D300s-replacement. 

A 1/4 to 1/3 stop improvement would represent a major improvement from a year's work of tweaking every aspect of the sensor, the processor and the software.  A 1/2-stop improvement would be a reason to party in the streets ... errrr ... online I mean.  Personally, 1/3 to 1/2 stop improvement is the most that can be expected unless Nikon comes out with a completely new sensor for the D300s-replacement.

How much weight equivalent would you give to a photo captured perfectly one after another, day after day, into weeks, months and even years?  This the D700 has done for me.  

Guys, I have a friend, a great lady who must be in her 60s already.  She was born a Brit but is now a certified Yankee.  She goes around with 2 camera bodies, a D3 and D3s, and her lenses are the 200-400mm f/4 VR and the 70-300mm VR or the 70-200mm VR2.  Tamrac Boomerang camera straps and a monopod helps to manage the load ... and she never complains about the weight ... only that she could have taken an even better photo if only she had a Nikkor 500mm f/4!   :o :o :o :o

Now do not even ask her what she thinks of those who are thinking of trading their D90s for a m4/3 or a NEX or NX!   ::) ::) ::) ::)

For many D700 users, weight is the least of their worries ... better image quality in even lower light conditions is the priority!  Thus the wait and desire for a D700s.   ;D

Sir Mark ... no info yet.  I have also been looking for this info.  Once Nikon releases the SB700 user manual, this info would then be available.  

In terms of brute force, the SB-600 may be more powerful than the SB-700 but I expect that the SB-700 would have a slight edge over the SB-600 in DX because one can optimize the light intensity and spread due to its extended zoom and light illumination pattern option (no need to use light-robbing diffuser).

The bigger micro-lens and the lower-pixel density of the bigger full-frame sensor are what accounts for this.  This is what gives the FF cameras a leg-up on the APS-C/DX cameras.

there is more to a camera than just an ISO performance...a D700 FX camera is still better than D7000...although admittedly the feature gap is less for now..once the Pro level DX and FX line refresh it's a whole new ballgame.



@flxrms
yes i agree lets wait and see what gonna happen to the d300s and d700 update...

@LGO
yes i know a stop cleaner is really huge improvements...
if you remember the d200 medyo hirap na sa iso 800 when d300 came very usable sa iso 1600 then the d700 came which far usable at iso 3200 then an update of d80 came the d90 which is very same sensor and capability as d300. now the d7000 would you expect its capability to be the same as d300/d300s in terms of iso performance? maybe just maybe its usable and decent at iso 3200 a stop cleaner from d300/d300s and d90. so maybe when d300s update came a stop cleaner from d7000? usable until iso 6400? what you think guys???hehehe

ayus kung ganun diba? para mag dx nlng ako and sell my fx system hehehe  

if this is true then d7000 would kill d300s and d700? just my opinion hehehe

This will allow for more accurate metering and perhaps a better white balance as it takes into account the colors of the area covered by its sensor.  Nikon has RGB (color thus) sensors while most other camera brands still use B&W sensor for metering.

Note that the the D300s, D700, D3 and D3s has 1005 RGB sensors while the D7000 has 2016 RGB sensors!  ;D  I expect this will be the norm with all new Nikon higher-model cameras moving forward.

Nikkor AF-S 35mm f/1.4:

    * Nano coating
    * Aspherical element
    * 9 blades aperture
    * Expected price: around $1800

According to the Nikon website this is an FX (Full-frame) lens. This doesn't directly replace the dx 1.8g lens as using the new one would mean the shot gets cropped on non fx lens. kinda defeats the purpose of the 35mm.

NIKON D7000  FIRST IMPRESSIONS HANDS ON AND SHOOTING -(pre-production sample)

(http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk/imageBank/n/Nikon-D7000-in-the-wild.jpg)


Quote
NIKON D7000. LOW NOISE

Nikon will maintain its crown for very low digital noise in images taken at high ISO settings if this prototype camera's processing is anything to go by. Despite more pixels asking the EXPEED 2 processor to work harder, and the fact that those pixels are smaller than those of previous Nikon cameras, I found that image noise right the way to the limit of the standard ISO range is extremely well controlled. Venturing out before dawn I had no problems working handheld at ISO 3200 and 6400. Noise is there, obviously, and there is a quality jump between these last stops of sensitivity, but images taken at ISO 3200 show hardly any pattern at maximum print sizes, while those taken at ISO 6400 are lightly grainy but still completely free of chroma noise.

It is still too soon to draw conclusions about Nikon's new 2016-pixel metering sensor. In theory, having more pixels will allow the camera to divide each scene into more parts to help the processor form a more detailed impression of what it is looking at. Extraordinarily bright or dark areas will be identified and ignored, which is useful for flash work. Nikon says this extra detail will also help the scene-recognition modes, making it easier for the camera to tell the difference between a landscape and a portrait, for example, and that it will help improve auto white balancing routines.

(http://nikonrumors.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/nikon-q.jpg)

This is the speculation of someone regarding the image below which was anonymously sent to Nikon Rumors:


"Nikon appear to be preparing a presentation of a new mount.

Dubbed the ‘Q’ mount, it’s logo is a circular camera mount with a red X at the bottom right hand corner.

In patent’s it is known - Nikon have filed mount and lens designs which do not feature a lens release button on the camera body. I believe the red X in the Q logo is a reference to this design since the camera body does not have a traditional lens release button on the bottom right.

The release button is situated on the lens itself, so that the lens can simply be gripped with the button held down and pulled away from the body.

The patents appeared to show a mirrorless camera body.

If Nikon were to announce their intentions for a new format, it is also expected that the lenses will be even smaller than that of Micro 4/3rds, closer to c-mount size and that the sensor would be approximate to 16mm cine film size.

I am excited about this one. I really do think that the answer to Nikon’s Q, is high end mirrorless camera."
Title: Re: nikon d7000, nikkor lenses & sb-700
Post by: LGO on September 18, 2010, 01:03:22 AM
Personally, unless used with pancake prime lenses, the m4/3 NX and NEX system does not make sense to me.  While the mirror-less setup succeeded in reducing the body and making it lighter, the zoom lens remains big and totally out of proportion to the size of the diminutive body.  This is particularly true with Sony and Samsung as they use the APS-C sensor which while yielding the benefits of a bigger sensor than the m4/3, also requires a much bigger lens.

Truly, a compact body deserves a compact lens if this is to make sense at all.

Well, Nikon's Q-Mount seems to indicate a smaller sensor and thus requiring smaller lenses.  For the whimps (just kidding!  ;D ) who absolutely must carry only a small and light camera ... as even the smallest D3100 is too big and heavy for them to carry on their fragile shoulder and hold up in their hands (ha ha ha ha  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D), then the upcoming Nikon Q-Mount mirror-less system may be just the camera you have been waiting for! 

Abangan!   ;D ;D ;D

Title: Re: nikon d7000, nikkor lenses & sb-700
Post by: LGO on September 18, 2010, 01:11:48 AM
As an aside, the Nikon Q-mount mirror-less camera would most likely have a 2.5x to 3.0x crop factor (with the 2.8x factor quite likely).

Despite the series of smaller lenses that Nikon will surely make for this camera which makes the most sense, I cannot help but get excited with the idea of mounting the F-mount lenses on this small body through an adapter primarily for fun and not for general use.   

So using the 2.5x crop factor to be conservative, imagine what an inexpensive Samyang 85mm f/1.4 MF lens can do in such a body where such a lens becomes a 212.50mm f/1.4 lens folks.  Where such a lens made for an F-Mount body, it would be as big and heavy as the Nikkor 500mm f/4 and likely as expensive too!

 ;D

The above post by the way is just "shooting the breeze" for fun.   ::) :o :o ::) :o :o

You can achieve quite the same effect now by cropping the photo taken with your DX /FX body until it is the equivalent of the 2.5X crop in a Nikon Q-Mount camera.   8) ;D

Marketing Dept. explaining the value and function of the 2016-pixel RGB sensor:


"Sophisticated AE with highlight analysis

After the incredibly accurate 2016-pixel RGB sensor reads a scene’s lighting information such as brightness and colors, the D7000 cross-references what it sees with imaging data from 30,000 real-world shooting situations. This way, the renowned 3D Color Matrix Metering II delivers exposure results that are faithful to how you see light and shadow interplay, even in difficult lighting situations.

Marketing Dept. explaining the value and function of the 2016-pixel RGB sensor:


"Sophisticated AE with highlight analysis

After the incredibly accurate 2016-pixel RGB sensor reads a scene’s lighting information such as brightness and colors, the D7000 cross-references what it sees with imaging data from 30,000 real-world shooting situations. This way, the renowned 3D Color Matrix Metering II delivers exposure results that are faithful to how you see light and shadow interplay, even in difficult lighting situations. This intelligent metering technique also delivers exceptionally accurate i-TTL flash exposures, and it all happens within milliseconds for both speed and precision."
I like this!!!
Right now, I am puzzled if Sony A55 ,Pentax K-5 and Nikon d7000 share the same sensor. They have almost the same MP count. Similarly range ISO ( although pentax can go as high as 50,000 ). Pentax acknowledged that they are using a sony CMOS sensor but Nikon does not say yes or no.
I believe that the Marketing edge of Nikon are on some other things that will make photography more fun and easy like the  sophisticated AE 2016-pixel RGB sensor. I was not expecting that Nikon will put an AF module on their consumer camera model.
I wonder what the professional model will bring to us!!!

It is safe to say that all upcoming new FX camera release will utilize the 2016-pixel RGB sensor as well.  The AE sensor is something that Nikon liberally shares throughout its various camera models except with its entry level models.  

Guys ... note that even the very advanced D3s uses only the 1005-pixel RGB sensor so the D7000 using double that at 2016 pixel RGB sensor is a very big big deal.  Do not expect the upcoming new models to be any higher as this is not something easily done.  It would be at least 2-3 years even before a step-up to a higher level can be expected.  

That Nikon chose to use their most advanced AE sensor in the D7000 first is a indication how important the D7000 in Nikon's product lineup.  This is another reason why the D7000 will do well against the competition ... and another reason to get the D7000!  >:D

As a comparison, here are the AE sensor of the various Nikon cameras:


Nikon D3000            420-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D3100            420-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D5000            420-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D90                420-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D7000           2016-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D300             1008-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D300s            1008-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D700             1008-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D3                 1008-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D3                 1008-pixel RGB sensor

Nikon D3x               1008-pixel RGB sensor


As a strobist, I appreciate that the new 2016-pixel RGB sensor will deliver even more accurate i-TTL flash exposures.


Bottom line:

- Compared to the D90, the D7000 has more than 4x AE sensors. 

- Compared to the D300, D300s, D700, D3, D3s, D3x, the D7000 has 2x more AE sensors


The Nikon D7000 is equipped for serious battle!

As if that were not enough, the 2016-pixel RGB sensor is tied to Nikon's AF.  Why is this important?

"Nikon uses this same type of data to track objects moving through the image area, augmenting their continuous focus mode."

So the D7000 AF will be very capable in keeping track of 3D objects, using the color info to keep focus on the object as it moves through the 39 AF points in continuous focus mode to keep the subject in always in focus.

So metering and auto-focusing benefits from this 2016-pixel RGB sensor.   ;D ;D ;D ;D

The Nikon D7000 is going to be one serious camera to beat and I am definite that it will punching way above its current price point against other competitors that cost more.

I would like to backtrack on my earlier prediction where I said that the D300-replacement will most likely come in the form of a DX sensor in a D4 body.

As a counterpoint, one of the most cogent reason why Nikon will release a D300-replacement in a similar body is price point.

The D7000 has a list price of $1,200.  The next step up in list price point would be in the $2,000-2,200 range and this would be in a D300/D700-type body.  The next list price point for a DX in a D3/D4 body would be $4,000. If Nikon does not release a D300-replacement in a D300-type body, the price range gap between $1,200 and $4,000 would be too wide.  Nikon will need to fill that price gap with a product.

If the engineering changes and cost in putting a DX sensor in a D4 body is minimal, I wonder if Nikon will be brave enough to release a DX sensor in a D4 body.  In this way, those predicting the D300-replacement will come in a d300-body and those predicting it will come in a D4 body may yet be proven right!   ;D

Maybe with built in GPS,Wifi, Better video, HDR, Better bracketing, Better wireless trigger( you can use even without lifting the built in flash , SU-800 like CLS).Panoramic sweep  and many more fan boy wish list. It got to be much better than the d7000 to make it overwhelming compared to the d300s. After the d7000 release, I believe that Nikon has something more to give!!! The only question is when will it be.....but patience is a virtue  ;D :D ;) ::).Sabi ng Nikon "bilhin nyo muna ang mga d7000 bago ko i-release yong kasunod"... ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Kaya to the Nikon fans order na kayo, kasi ang haba na ng pila.

For me, it does not matter if Nikon to just purchase off the shelf sensor. Why ? It is much more cheaper for them to just buy the sensor than have them custom designed.

Even though sony / pentax / fuji / nikon share the same physical sensor, what differentiates nikon is the metering / software / processor etc.

If I am not mistaken, only nikon as of the moment uses an RGB sensor for metering.

I think that they have included into the d7000 whatever bleeding edge technology they have that they could cram in the 1200 USD price point.

they would like to assure us that what is released today is still good after 3 years.

This is same with the d90 (with exception of the video).

It is very hard to answer that query, perhaps in October we will know.We got to see how the new AE 2016 RGB sensor will perform.We know that this is the heart and soul of the Nikon AE/AF system.

Bwahaha! Very true! I'm targeting 7D next year as my next upgrade path but i have high praises for the D300s before the 7D was released so just thinking if the D7000 was really made to match the 60D or the 7D. ^^

It was not aimed IMHO to target the 60d or the 7D nor the d90 or the d300s. Nikon was just inserting it in between the d90 and the d300s or between the 60D and the 7D. Nikon is very talented in doing that like the d90 and the d300. Expect Canon to do a follow up and I hope it can be done on the next upgrade. Remember it took Canon several tries to finally match or better the d300.This might be the repeat of that scenario.I don't think that Canon engineers have no capability of doing that but they are not the ones selling the cameras but the marketing. ;D :D ;) :o
Now, will Nikon move the d5000 upgrade to replace the d90? We don't know yet. We also don't know why Nikon is not releasing the 3rd DSLR yet for this year!!!We have no idea if ever that camera is on the pipeline for the year 2010...ABANG na lang but for the mean time let us play with the d7000.
I don't think that shifting is a really good idea from people of  other camps!!! Hintay lang kayo and you will have a day rejoicing to your heart content like we Nikonians are doing!!!

@ Furry

For me, the D7000 was aimed squarely at the expected 60D.  Canon however shifted the 60D downward so there is now no direct comparison.  The list price of each camera is normally indicative of their position vis-a-vis the other.  The D5000-replacement will do battle with the 60D.  This time however, Nikon may have to include CLS/AWL in the D5000-replacement since the 60D has its equivalent.

The D7000 will definitely be pitted against the 7D.  But it will not be an equal battle.  As the price of the 7D has dropped, so will the price on the D7000.  After some time, the price equation will likely stabilize with the D7000 priced lower than the 7D.  For value-shoppers who are first time dSLR owners or who do not own any other lens except the kit lens, the price difference could sway them in favor of the D7000.  But I doubt whether the brillant performance of the D7000 would make any substantial dent on those who already own a multitude of Canon lenses.

The real battle against the Canon 7D will come next year when Nikon releases the D300-replacement.  This new body will be extremely compelling to DX shooters and I have no doubt that it will surpass the 7D.  But a year or two later, the 7D Mk 2 will likely leap-frog this.  And so the battle continues.

This early, your concern as a potential buyer of the Canon 7D next year is that by the time you are about to buy the 7D, the D300-replacement may be just around the corner and you will no doubt be hearing of praises upon praises heaped on the D300-replacement while the Canon 7D now seems a bit lackluster.  But by then, you will have the advantage of the 7D being at its lowest price and this hopefully will be enough to compensate for any feeling of inadequacy any new 7D owners will have against the D300-replacement.   :D ;D  Recent D300s and would-be D300s owners will no doubt happily concur with this statement.

Until May to June 2011, this will be difficult to answer as the D300s will be priced very low while the D7000 will still be priced at a premium.

But by this time next year, the D7000 will likely be priced lower while the D300s would not be able to go any lower.  So by this time next year, the D7000 will be the likely choice.  Those who want a higher-model body would be drooling and saving for the D300-replacement.  8)

Guys ... just a quick heads up.  Fujifilm just unveiled the FinePix X100 large-sensor compact.

http://www.dpreview.com/news/1009/10091910fujifilmx100.asp (http://www.dpreview.com/news/1009/10091910fujifilmx100.asp)

Fixed lens though.  As usual, Fuji fails again.  Even if it were a fixed lens, if it had a 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom, then I would be terribly smitten by this.  Or better yet, an interchangeable lens with an F-mount.  

But perhaps a fixed lens was inevitable since it has optical viewfinder which also needed to be fixed.  This most likely uses the same Sony sensor and tweaked by Fuji.  A 23mm f/2.0 lens on DX would be a 34.5mm f/2.0.  Nice ... but I think I will stick with a D7000.   :D      

OK ... back to the D7000!  ;D

I don't really upgrade in less than 2-3 years even if I have just a lowly consumer type of Camera. It is cheaper to Gas frequently on low end model than the high end professional cam at one time.

now i'm thinking if i should sell my d90 to get d7000.  ??? but the thing is the price of brand new d90 now is very cheap so i might not get the price that i want if i sell my d90.

The MSRP of the D7000 is really the biggest news here.  I wonder if this will trigger a major price war.

On paper, the D7000 completely sinks the 60D IMO, and Nikon have definitely fired a broadside right at the Pentax K5 as well, though Nikon has less flexibility with weather-sealed lens choices.

Being a former Nikonian, when I first saw the D7000, I thought - if Pentax ever made an F mount camera, the D7000 would have been it.  :D

To see and experience a real upgrade in terms of IQ, ISO performance, dynamic range, creamy DOF, pro-body, get the D700.

Then get an LX5 for video... ;)

The rumored Nikon Q-Mount is a hoax.

DPReview on the Nikon Booth in Photokina:


"The Nikon stand is its usual riot of yellow but, thanks to recent lens and DSLR releases, is very much focused on high-end products.

The D7000, as our front-page poll suggests, is the hardest camera to get near on the stand. The high-end enthusiast model is paired up with a variety of lenses and artfully arranged in displays showing off its movie capabilities. Also on show is the similarly compelling D3100 - which is garnering a lot of looks despite its lowly position in the company's range.

In common with Canon, and despite the recent rumors, there's no sign of anything mirrorless on the stand, nor are there demonstrations or exhortations of the potential of 3D. Instead there is a range of full-frame and high-end lenses, from the 24-120mm F4 and 28-300mm F3.5-5.6, though the 35mm F1.4G and 85mm F1.4G, to the surprisingly compact 200mm F2. Just to make sure the customers attracted by the D3100 don't leave disappointed, there's also the rather more affordable 55-300mm F4.5-5.6G VR."

1 quick newbie question;
What really is the use of the RGB AE sensor? Does it mean na that the sensors (obviously upgraded) capacity to recognize the red, green & blue color got better? And one more thing, AE?
Thanks in advance ;)

Please note that the Nikon booth was well lighted and this helps in taking cleaner-looking photos taken at high ISO.  There will likely be more color-chroma noise if the scene was darker.  Still, I must say that the results are impressive - specially since this is now a 16mp sensor, up 4mp from the 12mp sensor of the D90.  

So for many reading here, its not a question of if ... it is a question of when?!!!! ... ha ha ha ha!   ;D

The picture that I referred to was the lenses' shot from flickr. But seeing the other picture from fotografie.fr at iso 12800, indeed the noise is very well controlled! I believe it is SOOC shot and no PP yet?

I've tested the camera earlier at photokina. looks and feels like the D90 with upgraded features. Feels light and solid.

Wasn't able to test the video performance though...

From Thom Hogan:

"I'll just state up front that I think that the D7000 is the most important camera Nikon has introduced for consumers since the D70 (and perhaps the D700 if you consider it a "consumer" camera; it's certainly a camera that a lot of consumers purchase). The 7 numbers have been important to Nikon in the digital generation. The D70 was what got them significant consumer momentum. The D700 stole the full frame momentum from other companies. The D7000 will…well, it should turn out to be right in the sweet spot of where the advanced amateur wants to be. The only thing the D7000 doesn't have that the target audience might (think they) want is full frame."

More from Thom Hogan:

"The D7000 is in the anchor position of the consumer line. The D90 was Nikon's most successful consumer DSLR, and the D7000 has to go a long way to take over that mantle. Fortunately, it seems to be ready to do just that (though I haven't yet seen image quality from it yet, and that will be the final important leg for it to stand on). If the image quality holds up, even D90 users are going to be tempted to upgrade, which means the camera should do exceedingly well for Nikon. "

The primary question mark I have on the D7000 is now primarily on its video performance.

Match the high ISO ability of the D7000, shoot 1080p video at 24fps, with aperture at f/1.4 or f/2.0, with full manual control on the aperture (start of video recording), manual shutter, manual ISO and auto-focus and it seems like the D7000 is a good video camera as well ... missing only the 60fps capability that would be very useful for slow-motion.

What remains un-dertermined despite the video by Chase Jarvis is the Mbit speed of the D7000.  I have been to Nikon's website and reserached this from other sites but seem unable to find any info on this.  

If anyone comes across this info, please kindly post this info here.

P.S.  We do not really need Thom Hogan to tell us how good the D7000.  But it is good to know that  he agrees with us :D ;D ;D ;D anyway .... ha hah ha ha ha!

ha ha..you guys are funny. My only other concern right now is i'm sentimental...not sure if i can let go of my D90..(first love never dies..ha ha). Also, not really good at selling stuff. But i have to sell it to at least minimize cost on getting the D7000.

i may wait, check it out, see some photo/video samples...but i already know D7000 is going to be big!! haayyy buhay..i can already see myself pre-ordering at Amazon (no tax and shipping costs!!)

Thom is a good sport.  He is normally serious but can be quite humorous when he knows you well enough.

In addition to Thom, one person who makes for a very good reference on Nikon and Nikkors is Bjørn Rørslett.  Bjørn is very knowledgeable and completely unflappable in his assessment of Nikkors, calling it straight as he sees it.  I take his word just as he say it without any equivocation and with the utmost confidence.

Re Ken Rockwell, its ironic that while he can be very helpful to beginners, he keeps dumbing down his readers to that level and ultimately, his readers turn against him as they become more learned in this hobby or profession.  In this forum as elsewhere, respect for the reader regardless of his level of expertise remains paramount.  While exchanges and discussions can get heated sometimes, this should still be the goal.

Rex, I feel the same way when it comes to parting with my gears.  I have reconciled this with the insight that unlike in the film days when the owners would keep their photo gears for years without casting a moist eye on the next model as it bears little changes, the reality of digital photography is quite different.  This is turn makes upgrade inevitable when reasonable and affordable. 

One consolation I get when selling my gears is that it will continue to be of use and that someone else will benefit from it even as this allows me to get the next new upgrade in "digital film" by getting a new body.

LGO- Thom, Bjorn as well as Bob Krist are also my Nikon idols.  KH used to be my main resource when I first started my DSLR hobby but felt that his website was indeed tailored to beginners.  He still have a lot of updating to do on his website since there are just too many new Nikkor lenses that just came out.

On topic:  The 28-300mm looks promising as a good travel and walk around lens for FX camera users.  Here are some images posted on some of the forums.  However, I'm still considering in replacing my old Nikon 24-120mm f3.5-5.6 VR lens with the newer model.  I just like the contrast, flare resistance and image quality of Nikon's "Nano coating".  For those who have not tried these lenses with nano coating, it is a huge difference.  85mm f1.4G is also another lens that I've always wanted. 85mm f1.4D will also work if the price is right.

Bob Krist is a great photographer who can show us "FX-jukies" people what a great camera a DX can be in the right hands.  Bob's favorite is still a D90 and had the Nikon D7000 not been upgraded in its video capabilities, I am certain that Bob would have been an early tester of the D7000.  As it is, Chase Jarvis had first crack at the D90 due to its video capabilities and so again with the D7000.

Re walk-around lens, the 28-300mm is really proving better than I thought.  I used this lens to shoot some IR last night (yes, IR at night  8) ) and got excellent results due to the absence of any focus-shift.  This is the reason why Bjørn got his own copy of this lens.  

Used for standard photography, the Nikor 28-300mm VR is also a delight as I have already mentioned in the other Pipho thread re 24-120 vs 28-300mm.  The Nikkor 24-120mm f/4 VR with the nano-coat remains compelling though and would be my first choice is I can only have one of these two.   Again, I need to add that this is because I typically have 2 bodies with me, with a wide lens (16-35mm f/4 VR or 24-70mm f/2.8) on FX, and long (70-200mm) on the other FX.  If I want a lighter setup, I would use a D700 with a 16-35mm, and the D7000 with the 24-120mm f/4 VR to cover the 16-180mm equivalent at a constant f/4.

The problem comes when I would carry only one body .... which one would it be ... the 24-70mm f/2.8, the 24-120mm f/4 VR or the 28-300mm?  The answer to this is still ... it depends on what I will be shooting.   ;D

16-35 and 28-300 plus a flash!!!!Take a ride in a star trek USS Enterprise and then look out the vast universe and say," let us see what we can shoot out there". It is not without compromise but then you have at least shrunken the load without totally handicapping  your capabilities.
If you are a back packer or a mountain climber just do yourself a favor by taking an s90,lx3/5 or maybe a g12. ;D :D ;) ::) You can even shoot it while riding zip lines. ::) ;D :D ;)

Doc, the 28-300mm that I am testing belongs to my brother and he had precisely what you had in mind when he bought the 28-300mm.  He plans a Nikkor 16-35mm on a D700 and the Nikkor 28-300mm on another D700 or perhaps the D7000!  If the latter, he can cover the equivalent of 16-450mm!     :o ::) :D ;D ;D ;D

Re compact camera, those compacts would indeed be good.  But nothing beats a hacked GH1 or GH2 with a prime lens taped to one's helmet when zipping down!  If an experience is worth recording, might as well record it in the best way that one can.   :o ::) ;D

Hot Rumor Re Canon and Nikon's new Full Frame Camera:

From Canorumors:

"I have a bit more information.

It seems that both Canon and Nikon are aiming for very high megapixel flagship cameras near the end of 2011, somewhere in the 35-45 mpx range.

This exceeds original reports of a 32mp sensor inside the 1Ds Mark IV.

Before either of these cameras launch, I suspect both Canon & Nikon will release big megapixel cameras to come above the D700 & 5D Mark II. Think in the 28-32mp range. This would match up with some stuff I’ve been told in the past."

But as the Canon 5DMk2 and Nikon D700-replacement will launch earlier, there is still a chance that this may happen sometime in the first half of 2011, and maybe even early 2011?  

More waiting Doc so maybe a D7000 first?  Ha aha hhah ha!    ;D ;D ;D

Doc ... let me know if it goes with the microphone.  I know I will be looking at the same setup sometime in the near future. 

I will be able to borrow a Nikon D3100 for a family trip on October (before the D7000 release).  I plan to use a Zoom H2 to get a better audio quality recording but of course will still need to synch this with the video still during post-processing.  I will thus still be looking for an external microphone solution to simplify the work process.

I am on scouting and building process but I won't buy it until I got a d7000 and see if the video is worth it. I am not picky with video by the way. I like the AF demo of d3100 and I think it can keep up like the real video cam.We will just compare notes and I think I will be asking around a lot since I am not that knowledgeable on this thing. ::) :D ;)

Please kindly advise on the local price on the Rode SVM Stereo Condenser Microphone.  It sells for $250 from Amazon but there is of course still the shipping cost and the delay so I would prefer to get this locally if it is available at a reasonable price.

If someone knows the local price and the local vendor of the Tiffen Merlin Steadicam, I would appreciate knowing about it also here or by PM.  This currently sells in Amazon USA for $775.00

Many thanks.

The Steadicam Merlin is designed to give you smooth, dynamic shots. Take a closer look at its functions.  This stabilization system is about half the weight and four times as stable as the JR. Yet, it can move almost as smoothly as the big $60,000 rigs used in Hollywood.

From the Manufacturer

The Steadicam Merlin offers light, agile, and seamless shooting for today's videographer. Ultra-light and ultra-compact, the Merlin allows you to keep up with the action more easily than ever. Designed by Garrett Brown, the inventor of the original Steadicam JR, the Merlin is the next generation hand held Steadicam system.

The Merlin let's you "fly" wherever the scene takes you -- up and down steps, indoors and outside, through crowds -- almost anywhere, with precise, elegant control and ease. Its quick release mount lets you instantly swap camera connections between your Merlin and any tripod. Merlin's design significantly reduces fatigue. It's so lightweight, it weighs less than a can of soda. With a compact DV, balanced and ready to go, the Merlin weighs about two pounds. Its rigid construction permits longer focal lengths than ever imaginable with a hand-held stabilizer. Merlin's unique dual extended weight system greatly increases inertial stability. And its counterbalancing weight can be precisely adjusted to balance cameras from 0.5 to five pounds.

The new patent-pending "Folding-Caliper" hinge allows instant fold-up, perfect for shoulder-mounted shooting, and just as quickly, returns precisely for hand-held camera work. Whether you're an independent camera professional or running the corporate AV department; a wedding and event videographer or real estate agent; enthusiast or film student, the Steadicam Merlin is right for you.

A caveat to the wonderfully sounding words from the Tiffen Merlin Steadicam. 

While this rig produces excellent results once mastered, it takes a lot of effort and some time to learn to use it as described.  Practice, practice and even more practice is key.  But once you have mastered it, it would be like riding a bike ... it will allow you do things you could not do without it.

Please kindly advise on the local price on the Rode SVM Stereo Condenser Microphone.  It sells for $250 from Amazon but there is of course still the shipping cost and the delay so I would prefer to get this locally if it is available at a reasonable price.

I will be able to borrow a Nikon D3100 for a family trip on October (before the D7000 release).  I plan to use a Zoom H2 to get a better audio quality recording but of course will still need to synch this with the video still during post-processing.

too bad the 3100 does not have mic input. The only option to have decent audio is to have a separate recorder (same with the current d90) then combine in post.

would like to clarify something. is the d7000 is the replacement of the d90 or as new item? for a newbie, is it advisable to jump to d7000 instead of getting a 2nd hand d90 with kit lens worth 36k to 42k plus sb-600 worth 9k?

thanks in advance!

Yes, I agree. You will learn a lot by back reading esp. the items of LGO. However, to make things short, the d7000 is a better camera and the d90 isn't bad either. If you have the d90 think 10000x before upgrading but if you don't have, no need to think grab the d7000. It is design for beginners and advanced users. No need to worry if you are a newbie. ;)

From what I have read, Nikon could possibly use the same sensor of the D7000 with the future D400 just like what they did with the D90 and D300.  This is just pure speculation on my part but the D400 will most likely have more features, dedicated or assignable buttons for faster access of the control features or menus, higher fps, and better video in order to differentiate the two camera bodies and target the D300 and/or below users.  Dual memory slots CF/SD card will be a standard feature to record video from jpg/raw files or however you want to configure it.

Here is a link from the photokina who used the D7000 demo.  It's in italian so just view the pictures unless you can read it.

Doc ... use a tripod and strap the mic to one of the legs.  When hand-holding the camera, mount the mic on a  flash-holder bracket.  I will be reluctant to mount an accessory on the hot shoe if it is heavier and/or bulkier than an SB-900.

The other alternatives is simply to use a separate digital recorder that can record the audio independent of the video, and with a tone noise perhaps, synch the audio and the video.  You wll have the advantage of getting better sound by siting the recorder closer to the subject.  This will mean a bit more work in post-process but will ease the load and avoid potential damage.

1) if the images samples above are real then I would say the D7000.
2) no, D300/D300s is still categorized as pro-dx camera and uses different battery/grip just like D90.
So... D90 will remains (if not to be phased out in december), then D7000 then D300s

if comparing via a d300 /d300s the d7000 has much better noise control... some say a stop or two better. Please do not compare the  d3100 / d7000 with the d90/5000/300/300s as it is a generation older... expect a noise level comparable to an FX d700. Not equal... but comparable.

2. is D7000 an upgrade for D300?

no. The d7000 is a direct replacement of the d90

Yes it has better sensor and hd video recording but has some features you will miss from your D300 too.

Body wise, it feels like a downgrade to me. I'm guessing you haven't maximize your D300 capabilities just yet.  ;D

i think you're right..i haven't really maximize its potential yet..i just wish D300 has higher iso capabilities,at least similar with what D7000 can offer. ayan nalito na ako ... pero overall kuntento naman ako for now with my D300, its just that, sometimes a need for higher ISO will arise from time to time, lalo na sa low light situation....i guess i really can't have it all with my tight budget.

If you are referring to the D4, then I agree.  The good news is that these will most likely to perform better than the D700.  The bad news is that it's going to be a while before the production comes out and it will remain expensive.  So just wait for the current D700 owners who are willing to upgrade their camera and get the latest and greatest.  I doubt you'll see a lot in the Philippines but you'll never know.  The D700 is still a very capable camera.  I'm not going to be one of those guys but I'll continue to buy more lenses.  Just one more... ;) ;D

What glass do you own right now? I think fast zoom or prime lens like 1.4 should benefit more.

Well it's up to you, it's your money ;)

I shoot iso1600 & iso3200 + 1.8/2.8 lens on lowlight events on my D90 looks clean to me. So I might decide to jump right on D700/D800 or D400 next year (if rumor is true).

I estimate pinaka lowest price ng D700 is 90k until ma phase out... even so it's still an awesome body but then mahirap na maghanap.

Those are already fast and solid quality lenses.  I think a D700 / D3s will allow you to maximize the performance of all you lenses (except if your 35mm if the DX lens).

this is the advantage of having an FX body.. market prices will always drop, but for those FX like D700, i really doubt it will go low that much -- well, compared to those DX bodies.

Soon the DX bodies will be able to achieve higher ISO that will match the FX bodies and the main difference will be field of view.  Wider or normal field of view for full frame and crop or longer FOV for DX bodies.  The price of the D700 will surely drop a little.  There will be a surplus of used D700 in the market once the D800 or next FX camera comes out.  There will always be those people who would like to get the latest and greatest once they are available.  That's good news to those who have been waiting for a bargain FX camera.

Those are already fast and solid quality lenses.  I think a D700 / D3s will allow you to maximize the performance of all you lenses (except if your 35mm if the DX lens).


my 28-70mm f2.8 is awesome. Nice copy i got considering i bought it used =)

actually i'm contemplating on getting a used D700 from a reputable vendor or website such as www.bhphotovideo (http://www.bhphotovideo) or www.adorama.com (http://www.adorama.com). since i have an access for a lower shipping cost, i think i might considered used D700. however, i observed even in used section of such website, D700 are still very hard to find =( well, abang abang mode na lang talaga =)

It is an speculation that the prices maybe around US$1300 plus or lesser...kaya baka 60K could be less or more. If you will wait a little longer the prices will significantly drop more.

What kind of controls are on the Rode mic? The tech specs say stereo mic. Can you control the volume and gain on it?


Quote
Erik Hecht Monday - 11th of October, 2010 at 11:14 am #
      There’s a -10db/0db gain toggle switch on it, but that’s it for level control. We just let the camera do AGC for behind the scenes stuff.



done. If the SVM suffice for the Chase Jarvis crew, then I'm going for it!

Hi Mike.  I was just wondering how you manage to own both systems.  Isn't it confusing sometimes about the settings?  The advantage of Canon is that you can always use an adapter in order to use Nikon lenses.

Hi Glen. ITs like this... The d700 has a 50 f1.8mm and 16-35 f4... but the thing is i have control on the said unit but its not wholly mine, it belongs to the company i am working for. The 5dmkII is mine and a 7D is a recently acquired gear... hence I am willing to spend a certain amount of money e.g. 24 f1.4... and planning to get a 16-35 f2.8 for the 7d but the plan got side tracked due to the announcement of the d7000.... if the d7000 manages to stomp the 7d senseless then i might shift earlier... but again if the rumored d400 becomes a reality then i'll just wait till next year.. who knows maybe nikon will be featuring dual expeed to processors to up the ante of canon's dual digic4.

Mike.  Good to know. 

Re: Dual processors.  I think it makes sense for Canon to use dual processors since it needs to process more data due to it's higher MP.  I don't have any quantitative data with either processors but I think the EXPEED can hold it's own ground based on it's current designed and features.

The D7000's features are definitely better than expected for an advance or intermediate entry level camera.  The release of the D400, D4, and D800 within the next year or so will be even better.  Matched them with the new FX and 1.4 primes, then it's game on.  :o ;D

I think Nikon needs to update most of it's DX lens line up since that's where the majority of it's sales is going to be.  With FX, I think it has most of the lenses that I will need.

An unimaginable entry level FX camera (let's call it baby D700) that has the body size of the D200/D300 or smaller, and slap the sensor of the D3s will blow things out of proportion.   :o 

Any takers? Doc?

That camera exists only in my wish list. I think I got to play with the d7000 first and stop imagining that Nikon will bring something else better.I will end up not buying anything to shoot with. ;D :D ;)

our Best Buy store here in US has 3 years no interest financing offer, not a big fan of financing and usually pay cash, but zero interest is really tempting.

it's similar to the Canon's IS noise when you use the internal mic but it's non existent with external mics

i don't think so. looks like videos are just starting to come in and being posted in youtube by D7000 users. haven't checked vimeo though.

With Amazon though, you don't pay taxes and they ship it for free! For California it's almost 10% now, so it'll be a big savings not paying it. So the maker of this video may have ordered his D7000 at amazon and got back-ordered until Nov. Still, the video is very funny, even though i've seen it a lot of times already with friends.

D7000 vs 60D vs 7D
http://dancarrphotography.com/blog/2010/09/16/nikon-d7000-vs-canon-60d-vs-canon-7d/ (http://dancarrphotography.com/blog/2010/09/16/nikon-d7000-vs-canon-60d-vs-canon-7d/)

interesting note:
Quote
The Canon 60D is made entirely out of plastic whilst the Nikon D7000 is a combination of Magnesium alloys and plastic. To be more exact, and I think this is important because most websites seem to have missed this fact, only the top and the rear of the D7000 are made of magnesium.

mukhang nagkakakulangan talaga  :o :o :o dito nga sa tokyo mismo nagkakaubusan. bibili sana ako nun nakaraang sunday,pag tingin ko sa mga shops,minsan out of stock. kaya nagtyaga na lang ako sa himas himas sa showroom ng nikon :'( :'( :'(

maaari ngang nov 20 pa umabot kay ninong sa hidalgo yan. so best hope natin is january or feb pa bago maging stable ang supply nito. ganito din yun sa D90 noon pero parang mas malupet ang demand ng D7000 ::)

sept ata lumabas yun D90 pero nov na ako nakabili kay ninong.  ::) syempre,best price

(d7000 left; canon 7d on the right) Thought both camera bodies can claim magnesium alloy body construction, that construction is not necessarily equivalent. Notice that the Canon's lens mount is bolstered by the magnesium alloy body. -gorephoto.com



still, partial magnesium alloy body is sturdier than all-plastic cams. good enough for d price, i'd say ;D

tapos yung d7000 at 60d

hindi pwedeng i-compare yung construction ng d7000 (low cost) sa 7d (pro-rated gear)

re 7d ... talagang mahihirapan ang nikon tapatan yan.

+1

based on msrps.. (not accurate ;D

canon 7D = $1699
nikon D300s = $1799 (announced 15 mos ago. will reach 18-mos age by January 2011 (in time for usual camera announcement, maybe nikon will announce one or two ;D

nikon d7000 = $1200
canon 60d = $1100
nikon d90 = $999

some say that d90 will not be discontinued just yet. it will sit below the market of d7000. 'lower' mid-level segment?

the approx $600 difference between the price of d7000 and d300s replacement (assuming predecessor price) will surely be worth it (if not stunning) to compete with canon 7d for the semi-pro market segment.

kumikita pa si D90 e...pero sa totoo lang wala nang $1000 ang body nyan. maybe $800 na lang to be realistic. sa singapore nga ang mura na nga lang nyan eh. bago pa. im sure mas mura pa yan sa manila at HK. :o :o :o

hirap talaga labanan si D90. humahataw pa din. benchmark camera e...hindi din tayo nabitin sa kanyang kapalit ::)

isa sa ayaw ko sa nikon is hindi sila madalas maglabas ng firmware upgrades para maging updated pa din yun mga luma nilang gamit. o sadyang para lang dyan yun kanilang firmware. sana maimplement din nila yan. can tplease everybody na din siguro

This was shot entirely with Nikon's new D7000 with ISO's ranging from 2,000 - 5,000 (!), recording at 1080 24p High Quality.

The difference in quality between the D7000 and the D90, at least video-wise, is a immediately noticeable, and the low light capabilities have to be seen to be believed. I would have shot more footage but it was starting to rain. I hope to have a lot more up soon!

The high expectations for the d7000 will disappoint some people when they will receive their camera. It is not something as some people make it appear to be. Initial feedbacks confirm this, like while the d7000 has the new AE, it's AF module is not at par with the d300s esp in tracking BIRDs ( birds in flight). The hi-iso is good but not as good as the the d700. However, the base iso is better that the d700. People are expecting too much from this camera that they are comparing it to the d300s and d700. The d7000 were not made to replace those high end models but an upgrade for the d3000/5000/90 users. If we keep our expectation at that level, we will not be disappointed. As usual  the video feature here is not at par with the Canon offerings. If you are looking for better high iso maybe the d700 and the the Canon 5d2 is still the better choice. I hope I will be happy when I will have mine.

Post by: ricworks on October 29, 2010, 09:22:55 AM

another user/critic's impression to tone down 'high expectations..'

Quote
On Image Quality

"This is a tough one. The D7000 comes with more pixels than a D700 and it even has more pixels than the D90. In fact it has the most pixels of any Nikon DX camera available on the market now. So with that said, let’s start with the good:

I strongly believe that the dynamic range of the D7000 is a step above other Nikon DX cameras. I am getting much fewer blown highlights and the shadows have details in them; this could also be attributed to the new metering system but even in manual mode I was getting fewer blown highlights yet the image still had a lot of contrast. I always thought the contrast on the D90 was low, especially compared to the D700. The D7000 also captures a lot of details within the scene. That is the good part.

Now the bad..

 "At this point I am generally not satisfied with the sharpness of the images from the D7000, the files tend to be mushy when looking at the details up close. In order to get files that are acceptably sharp, you need really good technique with fast shutter speeds. I think a lot of people will be complaining about this very soon. The slightest shift will become obvious when reviewing your files, you do not need to zoom into 100% to see these imperfections. A mystery to me is; I put the D7000 on a tripod using the self timer, exposure delay mode, manual mode, all noise reduction off and I shot from ISO 100 up to 6400. Even at ISO 100 I didn’t feel I was getting the proper sharpness. Keep in mind I was using the Standard Picture Control with sharpening increase to 5 out of 9. I just found the details to not be acceptably sharp as I am used to with the D700 or D90."


Quote
Pros

The D7000 does deliver in a being a better auto focus performer than the D90.
The D7000 has a much needed contrast boost in the images.
The high ISO performance is better than the D90 but less than the D700, a good compromise.
Increased dynamic range versus other Nikon DX cameras.
Definitely better auto exposure metering compared to the D90.

Cons

The sharpness of images are definitely an issue.
Mushy shutter release button.
Peripheral auto focus points that are not the most sensitive in low light situations.

While awaiting for the real reviews, there is a difficult path for the d90 users to tackle. Is the d7000 worth the upgrade for the d90 users? They will answer that individually since each have his own needs and how they derived the term "worth" from their gears. The d90 is a very stable model and very hard to ignore its value. The latest batch are virtually free of problems compared to the ones released two years ago.
While I was so eager to get the d7000 once it is release here but the excitement was gone and I am back to earth. It seems I am better off to keep my d90 and just buy a used d700 as a back up camera. When the d7000 prices stabilized and prices are dropping I can grab one. At the same time I will have a good look of what the d300s replacement will be and also see if I can afford the d700 replacement.

I am always reminded by this thread and I hope some can back read this sticky:

I might wait for awhile before getting the d7000, medyo over priced pa and supplies are very limited!!!With the initial pricing of the d7k, the d300s seems to be a good option or a used d700 may do!!!

For those who will have the privilege of owning it first, update us esp. the hot pixels issue when in Live view and putting it against a very dark background. The other one is the oxidizing issue that make lenses fail to AF even with the Nikkor lenses. It was reported to be occurring among Sigmas but then it can happen to Nikkors too!!Again, those are internet feed backs and I have no way of confirming it if it is really true or just another "rumors".
If you go to the shop, you can test it right away and if you notice some hot pixels that are too many or unacceptable then you know what to do!!!

Good luck. I hope next week you can give us your reviews!!!

With regards to the the d300s... well even our company d700 is acting up in the sense that it has this false low battery error. While my first d300s when it was released last year... was plagued with f0 error... good thing am not into wedding or events photog or else lagot talaga shots ko. But the point is as a gadget or item becomes increasingly complex so will the rate of errors and gremlins appearing become more often. e.g. cellphones during the time of 5110 or 6110 hardly do you hear anyone saying cellphone ko nag hang. But nowadays you frequently hear that hanging thing.

If you go to the shop, you can test it right away and if you notice some hot pixels that are too many or unacceptable then you know what to do!!!

Good luck. I hope next week you can give us your reviews!!!Why not? It is a very stable and durable product!!
The d90 is a good buy too!!!However, medyo luma na ang tech but it does not mean that it won't take great pictures!!!Pwede pa rin at hindi pwede na!!! ;) :D ;D

hmmm..looks like i'll wait then even more. when i first heard D7000 news and specs i'm jumping for joy and ready to buy! but now that it has come out parang medyo nag mellow down na excitement ko. Overall what's keeping me still interested is the high iso low light performance and some people saying it's "almost" as good as D700. I don't really need the dual SD slot, 1080p video is nice to have the but autofocus noise is starting to turn me off. I'm weighing options and looks like i'll stick with my D90 for the types of pictures i take (hobby, family events, kids). I think it being out-of stock and back-ordered is a blessing in disguise as i would have certainly got it if it's not. "Just got to have the latest gadget" syndrome yep guilty as charge. Medyo nakapag isip isip pa tuloy. Maybe i need to stop reading on reviews, unboxing videos, this thread! ha ha.. and just concentrate more on improving on taking photos, post-processing etc.

Same here, I would have bought the D7000 if readily available. Now am having second thoughts given that the D90 body is now only about 33k in Hidalgo (versus 58k for the D7000 body).The price difference can get me another lens or flash already. And after a 2 year rest from photography (got hooked to road cycling), the D7000 might be "too much camera" for me (still using my trusty D50 currently). I think the D90 would suit me just fine for the pics I take (kids, my daughter's gymnastics, family events). But then again, not sure if I can resist once I touch or try the D7000.:) Should get the D90 before the D7000 inventory arrives in Hidalgo.

or maybe releasing another model?  :D

might be too soon for canon to release another APS-C camera but who knows? 

based on the specs and initial reviews, the D7000 is one helluva camera and if this is already what we're seeing, we can expect more from the D300/S successor.  although i'm a canon user, i'm also excited to see more of the D7000 in action :) :)

D90 now =32-34k
d7000 now= 58k
Price difference,approximately=32-34 din, isa pang d90 o kaya isang 85 mm 1.8 at 50 mm 1.8, maysukli pa!!!

If you own a d90 and sell it after 6 months to get the d7000
d90= maybe 22-25k ( lugi ka 8-10k, pero parang ng rent ka ng 1.6k per month.
d7000 (stabilized) mga 45-50K, lugi ka ng 8-10K.
Parang ganon rin unless you will wait for 2 years, then it is a different story pero wala ng value ang d90 mo pero the d7000 will be around 25k ( assuming lang).Yong dalawa mong lenses valuable pa rin

Let us accept the fact that in photography, the body is get to be replaced now and then. The latest is always the greatest. IMHO, just get the d7k ( if you have completed your lens line up)and be over it!!! ;D :D ;)Otherwise  the d90 is really a good option!!!and you will have platform to build on your lenses.

Hindi naman siguro lahat. Hehehe. Pero kung sa lens na lang siguro mas oks pa and oks na oks na ang Nikon D90 plus magagandang lente. ;D Siguro mga 2 years eh nasa P35,000.00 to P40,000.00 'yan.

May kilala din ako na user siya ng Canon 400D pero recently lang, nag upgrade siya to Canon 7D and Canon 5D Mark II, sarap nung pag upgrade niya. Hehehe. OT na pala.

in 2008> d90 body = 1000 usd, us msrp  (approx 48k, $ @  = 48 php, late 2008)
2010> d7000 body = 1200 usd, us msrp  (approx 51-52k, $ @ 42.53 php, today's rate)

if  im not mistaken, initial quiapo price of d90 grey unit was around 50-52k then
two years later> today, price had been lowered to 35% (hence, 32-34k street price)

given an initial street price of 58k for d7000 (price is still good if ever u wanna compare features/value of d90 @50k  in 2008. but i was expecting it to be launched @54-55k street, given a stronger peso these days. its quite obvious a CASE of HIGHER DEMAND but with (iNITIALLy) limited supply, hence HIGHER PRICE tag dictates at this time.

for hardworking, practical photog-enthusiast looking for great-value-for-money, d90 @33k today is obviously a steal :)

but if you are type of shooter that thinks d90 features is limiting you, then go ahead and climb the stair.

i read somewhere from an experienced shooter, that d90 is practically adequate, even for advance enthusiasts (and some semi-pro users). he said that it would be just fine for 90% of most shooters -thats his opinion. i tend to agree :)

the 25k difference can be added into investing in accessories or high quality optics (fast, brighter, bokeh-creamy), which could probably last 10years or so and still be relevant :)

remember, there will be a newer and better camera for the same msrp of d7000 in two years time, and another one coming in two years after that..and another one..

in the end, its always your personal decision that would matter. to each his own.

still can't decide whether to sell my D60+tamron 17-50+sigma 70-200 and get a D7000 and start investing for another lens set up.. i love shooting events/concert and I need that decent ISO handling, fps, more AF points..

or

keep my 2 lenses.. sell my D60 and just get a D90..

or

keep them all and get another body next year since ang hirap na ibenta ng D60 ngayon..  >:(

panalo yung mga startup na photog na gusto maging pro... 2 x d90 agad. Mas madaling mag ROI ... hindi naman halata ng mga client ang output ng d7000/d300/d300s sa d90.

yep! exactly!! actually comparing my friends shots with D40 to my D90 outdoors with good lighting, walang pinagkaiba. parehas na kuhang dSLR pa rin..he he..although i cringe when i hold the D40 because of the LCD screen and i can't change a lot of settings like on my D90 with one hand. ofcourse nagkakatalo sa lowlight performance.

my bro-in-law ordered a D7000 and he'll have it by end of the month, hopefully i can resist the upgrade when i get to hold it. But getting the D7000 body only makes me itch..grrr..

amazon price of D7000 is crazy..from $1999 for body only and almost all stores are out of stock. somewhat kicking myself now for not getting it when BestBuy had it. flip flopping as usual, to upgrade or not to upgrade.
