|ktkn||Without going into which camera is better or worse... I just want to know how good this deal is. I've been reading a lot of the comments which seem to hint that this is not that great of a deal, certainly not "slick" but it's front page?|

I have since sold it and gone with a D600 which is also very simple to use for a beginner but has lots of features to learn with. The D7000 is a way overpriced entry level camera, save some money to spend on lenses and buy the D5100 for entry level. Buy the D600 instead of the D7000 if you have the money to spend on a camera body, and want to grow into photography.|

The advantages of the D7000 are a significantly better focus system, faster shooting into 2 SD card slots, weather sealing, and the ability to use lenses without a built in focus motor.
These things come at significantly added expense, and increased weight and size.
IMHO, the D7000 is the minimum Nikon brand camera someone should buy. Otherwise, for a more simple interface with great lenses that go on sale more frequently, Canon is the way to go. Word of warning: the D7000 is not an easy camera to learn, but is made for someone who is going to love shooting with many lenses in artistic type scenarios (e.g. adjusting exposure and bokeh, etc.).

|cldmello||I'd prefer the D5100 to the D7000 simply for the vari-angle LCD display. If you are new to photography, the D5100 should do just fine for all your photography needs. Even on the Nikon site, D5100 has better ratings from its owners and for a far better price.|

Someone would have to be really good for the D7000 to be limiting them that they need FX. I don't ever plan to go FX.

When amazon sold it, they packaged it with a "free" class on demand card, backpack and SD card, but they assigned values to each of those - presumably to make you return all of them for a full refund.
So the COD card was worth $121 or so, the backpack $28.05, the SD card $11 or so. All in all, the net effect was that they credited back all the extras so the camera was $835.

How can you return something that is free to get the price down? And doesn't CB works on what you actually paid? So if you return something, you don't get the CB for those?
