I would spend the couple hundred more for the D7100 instead of the D7000. Reason is because the D7100 has a 51AF point and should be much better than the 39AF in D7000. MP wise I actually prefer the 16MP.

But D7000's are more than half the price and very capable cameras. My D300 had 51 AF points and honestly, I didn't find it leaps and bounds better than the D200 it replaced and now that I've replaced the D300 with a D7000, I don't find myself hindered by fewer AF points.

New to the forum, but I am a D300 user.

I try to make the most of my 18-200VR, nifty fifty, and an SB-600.

I had an SB-800 and loved it, until some junky stole the lot.

At least they are cheaper now I suppose.

People have NO IDEA what they are missing out on if they are just using their built-in flash. The speedlight with diffuser is light years better.

Officially requesting Nikon pimp club membership! My new D3200 is on the way - I'm "stimulating the economy" with my tax return, heh! Well, sort of.

This is what I'll be using for now:
Nikon D3200
18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AF-S DX VR NIKKOR Zoom Lens
Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Prime Lens
Possibly the ol' AF ?-120mm Zoom if I feel like doing some landscapes and manually focusing. But I'll probably get an AF-S later on.

Ex Camera:
an Ancient Fujifilm S1 Pro, bought new back in like 2001 or something. Pretty much obsolete now. Haven't done photography in a few years, getting back into it now.

Yay! \o/

Congrats, you'll love it, especially with that 35mm 1.8G! You can be #102 as mentioned in PM!

well, might as well join if its still going on. Wife's the photographer, but she hits the site fairly frequently.
Currently she has a D300, D80, for nikon, and enough lenses to break the bank twice. Everything else is old school film.
I use a simple nikon P&S.
Not sure how you add that little tag thingy at the signature line though.

Thanks,
