This is an excellent mid range D-SLR without any doubt. I own one and I am indeed very satisfied. People looking for a D-SLR within 50-60k can definitely give a thought. Actually Nikon D7000 and Canon EOS 60D are both very competent D-SLRs and depending on the preferences one can go for either of the two.
I was confused between D5200 and D7000. Both have similar specifications and some specific benefits. Main points of my thought process: D5200 Pros: 24 MP, Expeed 3 processor, tilt flip screen, cheaper. D7000 Pros: Inbuilt motor (I can use older lenses, which are cheaper, like 50mm 1.8D), Magnesium alloy body, weather sealed.Been in market since 2010 and has been considered the ace in the DX format. I am glad i chose D7000, I prefer to call it the Royal Enfield of DX format cameras. It has a solid build quality. It has been there and will remain there. The image quality is unquestionable. you may call D5200 a pulsar or something. It serves the purpose but all the new versions with minor facelifts just makes it one among the crowd. I hope you got my analogy. So if you can shell out a little more, then please go for D7000. It will be a life long affair and you would love to grow old with this beauty.
Thanks to flipkart for fast service. I was worry to buy this camera from flipkart because i saw in nikon website that flipkart was not their distributor. Flipkart is the way where people buy their product from their distributor like WS retail and others. I got confuse and called to NIKON, they said you can buy the product any where but the product number has to match with their data base. if not then it is not a right product then i bought the camera from fliptkart and got crosscheck with customer care of NIKON and the product number is matching with NIKON database. So people should not fear to buy Nikon from Flipkart. Eventhough they are buying from Distributor need to cross check with NIKON...
It was very easy for me to choose it over canon 60d because of more AF points,sturdy body and advance facilities like AF fine tune for lenses with back focusing problem and dual memory card. Moreover it has great image quality with good battery.Supports wide range of lenses and has Autofocus motor inbuilt for AF lenses. Superb delivery by Flipkart delivered in less than 24 hours.Deal was very good at Rs 57500,even gray market shops could not match the deal Quite happy and satisfied
I was really confused while buying this and did a lot of research on several other cameras from nikon and canon - (d90 60d d5200).I even considered spending some more for nikon d7100 or canon 7d and decided instead.This is perhaps the best camera from nikon in APS c range and vastly popular.It provides you all the tools to become a better photographer.I would recommend people not to go for d5200 which lacks autofocus motor - this would prove expensive in the long run since u have to get a motored lens every time.It beats D90 and canon 60d hands down in almost every department (except canon 60d in video).This is the sort of camera that you can own and built a kit around and buy may b a pro body in some years time.You can then use this one as a second camera.People who would like to go for nikon d7100 and 7d i would say get this one and invest in better glasses ..there isnt a lot between d7000 and d7100 (get out of the mega pixel syndrome). For people new to photography or someone who would buy this as an upgrade from basic slrs - i would say get the kit lens , if you already have a 18-55 get the body only...get a 50mm 1.8 d with this one which is quite cheap ... you would then have both wide angle and potrait covered...if you want amazing night results ..make sure u get a tripod and a remote trigger with this one (the 50 mm +tripod +remote = Rs 7500 roughly) .That is a better way to spend money and learn the craft.
I have been doing amateur photography for last couple of years. I was using Olympus 4/3 system (E620) for last four years. But lack of service centers and quality in India made me move out of the brand Olympus. And as usual I was confused to choose between Canon and Nikon. Recent price hike of Canon lenses made the lens price comparable between the two giants. And feasibility of using old SLR lenses directly in the body made me lean towards Nikon. Still the contender was Canon 60D and Nikon D5200 (with a wish to get D7000). I am not a fan of taking video using camera (don't like handycams too) so the performance of video was out of my preference points. For 60D it was the articulated display, price vs performance (being a semi-pro of a time) and for D5200 it was the latest AF system and Nikon's ISO performance. However opted for D7000 with little more than that of 60D's regular price. D7100 was out in the market then, but the price difference does not justifies the need. Moving from a 4/3 system, I was overwhelmed with AF lock performance, ISO, DOF factor, and number of lenses that I can opt for (used and new). I am not expert enough to present differences with digits and numbers, but its fun to use this camera. I miss the super menu UI of Olympus, but with direct access buttons and top LCD viewer made the task of changing settings easy. Though the camera is towards heavier side compared to a 4/3 system or other entry level dSLRs, it strikes a perfect balance with 18-105 Nikkor lens and I can carry it around my neck without much trouble, but a sling strap will help a lot to distribute the weight around your shoulder than on your neck. The 18-105 lens is excellent and it has a good balance between size and reach for a kit lens. And it is sharp enough for an amateur to choose not to opt for more advanced general zoom lens. There are a lot of advanced settings that I have not tried, and most probably wont use also, but some basic settings I have done and love them, like auto ISO, WB settings, picture control for saturation-contrast and use of U1 and U2 mode. Backed with 2 slot for memory card, I don't have to switch between cards when one is full. A large view finder (compared to my old one) helps me to compose the frame better. Image Quality is superb with high ISO performance. Now I can go up to ISO3200 with usable quality photos. In 6400 noise it too much unless the frame is filled with less mid-tone and more of full blacks and bright highlights. Color reproduction is natural for most of the WB settings that is set by camera automatically. Overall I am very happy with this camera - excellent.
The camera performed much betr den my expectations and is worth its price. Its has a whopping shutr speed of 6 frames per sec. I m satisfied wid dis cam. Nd i bought it for 47000 from local nikon store (body.4gb card.52mm uv filter.camera bag). I think flipkark is charging more for this product
I ve purchased it in the month of Sep 2011 from Flipkart. The best deal @ this price range specially compared with Cannon. Cannon cannot stand at this price range with all this features. About performance - it's just awesome. It's AF motor, AF points, low light shooting (excellent), wide range of "scene mode" function for the beginners, heavy weight gives extra stable shooting, magnesium alloy body (for dust protection), for professionals manual mode with LCD preview is greatly helpful for getting a perfect shot. I am still doing new things daily with my cam and it's endless qualities giving new surprises and satisfaction with every shots. I ve just one word to say... If U are planning for a cam to experience some great shots, and if you are hesitating by it's high price - I would say GO 4 it if U ve craze on photography.
Nikon D7000 SLR is at the pinnacle of semi-pro cameras! It delivers like a pro and at the cost you get it here, it is unbeatable! If you are going for D90, stretch a bit, use the EMI option...and make your dreams come true! PS: Not to mention the delivery service went flawless...Thanks!
One of the best cameras out there today. Takes photography to a new level of precision and beauty. A must have for any photographer amateur or pro ! I ordered it 2 days back and flipkart definitely lived up to its reputation.
