| p.2 #18 · Looking for a new reliable D200 replacement, need opinions... |
I went from the D200 to the D7000 and I am thrilled with the move. And for what it's worth, I much prefer the control layout of the D7000. My eyes aren't as flexible as they used to be and it is much easier to see and select the camera's various modes with the D7000 set up. While it is true the D200 feels bulkier, I think the build quality of the D7000 will satisfy anyone's requirements. And the D200 can't match the D7000's image quality.
I have to agree with build quality of the D7000, unless someone can post a pic of a broken D7000.
I have heard of and seen broken plastic mount lenses, I have heard about possible sensor failure, but, I feel the abuse to break a D7000 would break a D700.
Yea, the D700 is bigger, but, I would bet the the plastic parts for a D700 and a D7000 are both molded from the same pelletized raw material.
You can not get a better material for the metal frame of a D7000 than the identical metal Stihl molds industrial chain saws from.
