Tomorrow should be a fun day.
Nice. Mine came one month ago...I know how u feel bro
Mine came 11 months ago and still cant wait till tomorrow to shoot some more.....lol
Coming from a d5100, the d7000 is a bit of a handful. 1st thing I noticed is the improved pentaprism vs pentamirror viewfinder. Much brighter and cleaner. The 18-105mm is a beast compared to the 18-55.... The build quality however, is truely a cut above 18-55.
Glad you got it... Highly recommend the Busch book for the D7000 Amazon.com: David Busch's Nikon D7000 Guide to Digital SLR Photography (9781435459427): David D. Busch: Books
Nice, I got mine a few days ago. Lol let's start a club.
I've read some of David Busch's books and I, on the other hand, recommend this one.
Amazon.com: Mastering the Nikon D7000 (9781933952802): Darrell Young: Books
Congratulation, i got mine a year ago and still feel the same joy as i got it for the first time.
The book suggested by cgipson1 is really good. +1.
I'll keep an eye out for those books. I've shot about 100 frames today so far. I really love the feel, fit, and finish of this camera. It will take me a while to get use to all the buttons. The d5100 did just about everything with the menu and while not the quickest way, I knew where things were. Now I have to get use to having all those dedicated buttons......LOL
I got mine a little over a year ago and haven't regretted it. (returned a D5100 after having it for about a month) The buttons can be a little daunting at first but before long you'll be changing settings subconsciously as you shoot. It can be a little strange looking at your settings and saying "When did I change that?" I'm forever doing this with the metering modes.
Geez, I'm feeling really left out...
That's okay. Me and my little D5100 will just keep plugging along, until I get a raise or another design job on the side or someone buys a few of my photos...maybe a LOT of my photos.
I don't really see any of those things happening for a while. But I was perfectly content with my D5100 until I read this thread...
