Time For A Nikon Upgrade D90 or D7000?
Posted 31 January 2011 - 01:05 AM
So I guess my question is: is the 7000 worth the extra $500 or so? I'm nowhere near an expert photographer, just a very enthusiastic amateur. Then, any ideas how I could sell my D40?
I've been researching all day, and my head's a spinnin'! Anyone own one of these who can help me decide?
Thanks in advance!

Out of the two you mentioned, and given your level of experience, I would think you would be best served by the D90. Both cameras are very capable, but I think the D7000 might have extra options that you are paying for but may not necessarily use.
I know the D90 and the D5000 share the same processor, I'm not sure about the D7000. I now use a D5000 myself and have found it more than capable, especially its multi-positional LCD.
As for your D40, could be worth hanging onto as a backup. or might the dealer take a part exchange? Failing that, there's always ebay!
Hope this helps sway the decision for you!

I found a dealer that will take my D40 for a decent trade in price. I'm pretty set on the D90, but I just don't want to feel like I need to upgrade again in 2 more years. Gotta make a choice soon, but I'm hesitating. The camera store has a nice used D90 that would allow me to also afford a nice 50mm lens.
Maybe I'm reading reviews from too many pros. They love the D7000 over the D90, but I'm nowhere near that level. Oh, the choices!
