    Not only can the D300s do 14-bit RAW (compressed or uncompressed), it can also do motherfucking TIFFs.

    /has no idea why you'd want to shoot in TIFF

    I don't really care about the higher pixel count of the D7000 - the D300s is already doing silly numbers as far as I'm concerned. But doing side by side comparisons, the D7000 does seem to be picked out a bit more resolution, and it makes less of a meal of high ISO, as you say. It's a better sensor, but the D300s already has a very good sensor.

    Probably me - I replied to someone with a suspicious posting style and only four posts. I just thought it was a vaguely interesting quandry. You were just replying to me :)

    I had used a Nikon D7000 for several years and liked it, so I thought why not again try for the same brand and the camera really work great for me
    The Nikon D7000 features a magnesium alloy casing, a sealing gasket for optimum protection against dust and moisture.It adopts a viewfinder with 100% magnification of about 0.94 x A very good point for a DSLR that does not want pro but it still brings a lot of its characteristics.

    D7000 video mode can record full HD (1920 x 1080): dedicated record button, video autofocus AF-F with continuous autofocus while recording, external mic for stereo - the microphone is mono injury.

    The camera contains a ton of built-in settings-- in addition to the basics like Standard, Normal, Landscape, etc, you also get all the various Scene modes, which are basically variations on those main settings.

    But why? Why act like a total dick in this thread? What is his goal? Angry comments on his pansy ass pseudo blog?

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I've recently bought a D7000 and it's a lovely camera. My first Nikon was a D70, then i moved to a D200 which I had for a few years, and now the D7000.

    Yep, it's quite a huge step forwards for Nikon's consumer bodies. I love its ergonomics, the image quality and how well it works with manual focus lenses. Grip is a bit off but that's redeemed when you fit it with the battery grip.

    Agreed..

    Smaller than my D200 but I also have a battery grip with the D7000 and it's fine for me.

    And fantastic in low light.

    I've got a Nikon one, but got it cheap through a friend.

    My glass at the moment includes the following:-

    Nikon 50mm 1.8
    Nikon 35mm 1.8
    Sigma 10-150mm 2.8
    Tamron 17-50mm 2.8
    Tamron 90mm DI 2.8 Macro

    All sharp as a tack.

    I want that Tamron lens, been reading very good things about it!

    I bought the grip at retail price (200-ish). It hurt, but it stays mostly on so I suppose that makes me feel better...

    valli, why would you want that Tamron when you've got the 24-70? Surely no one needs two fast standard zooms?!

    It's for the 17mm low end obviously as I'm also looking for replacing the 18-55 I bought cheap last year. I could dump it for under 100 and buy the Tamron 2nd hand for a bit more than double that.

    The Nikkor is decent except it's not particularly fast (55mm end is around f/5.6).

    Fair enough but that's a lot of overlap! You after the VC or non-VC version?

    Doesn't really matter since the wide end isn't really affected by VC. Love the VR stuff on the Nikkor though... have heard the non-VC is slightly sharper because it has less glass, is this true?

    Tonk a why not keep the Tamron. Macros tend to be sharp as shit for portrait use my macro for that sometimes.

    I've often wondered that, but never asked. So you can use a macro lens as a simple long prime too? Does it handle the same?

    /has never owned a macro lens, and only handled one once.

    Sure you can! Why not? I use my 105 macro as a long portrait and short telephoto.

    say no to Eurogamer sigs

    Cool. I guess I was just confused that the Nikkor Micro lenses seemed to be cheaper or almost as cheap as the same length non-macro prime, but looking more closely, the plain prime is the brighter lens by a stop or more, or has other specialities which push it past the price of the macro.

    Same here, although my Macro is 90mm.

    Not true! I've got the Sigma equivalent (17-50 OS) and at 17mm with OS on I can handhold shots down to about 1/3 of a second - blur motion without a tripod :-)

    If anyone is considering the 90mm Tamrom macro (Nikon) then I might consider selling mine. Fantastic lens but I could buy a lot of nappies with that cash...

    Drop me a PM if you fancy it.

    Don't sell it...you'll regret it.

    I originally sold one and instantly regretted it. Ended up getting another recently for use with my D7000. Fantastic lense for the money, and easily as good as some if it's more expensive competitors. My only issue is I'd like it to be a little longer but you can't have everything.
