So far, I’m very pleased with the Nikon D7000. I’ve posted a few sample photos on
Flickr in this set (sorry, no longer available). They were all uploaded at full resolution and all but this one of a very cooperative Red-Shouldered Hawk are un-cropped.
Red-shouldered Hawk, D7000 at ISO 220
I haven’t had a chance to do any direct comparisons, but the D7000 results seem very good all the way up to ISOs above 1000. With the D90 I’ve been reluctant to use anything above ISO 800.
The photos I’ve posted so far were all made in JPG. I took them in RAW+JPG mode, but so far Adobe Camera Raw and Nikon CaptureNX2 can not process the RAW files. To do a real comparison of the performance at different ISOs, I’d like to use the RAW files without any adjustments. A project for another day.
