Review Date: Feb 5, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,200.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: sharp, depth of field, awesome quality.
Cons:
can be slow focusing...

this lens changed the quality of the images we were putting out there. the depth of field you can accomplish with such a wide focal length is amazing. shoot this in 2.8 or lower, get close to your subject, and you're going to love it.

 
Nikon D7000

Pros: lightweight, SUPER QUIET!, great positioning of buttons like AF selection points, live view. Has a 'Q' (Quiet) mode thats cool--could have its uses. Has all the conveniences of my D700 like fast metering button, interval timer shooting, non-cpu lens data input, virtual horizon. Audio input is big plus, step up for D90 which is what I had prior. And double SD card slots=genius. 6fps fast and responsive. 1080p + 24fps closer to pro. Great value.
Cons:
The Nikon in camera editing is pretty silly/useless. Would like to see the rectangle viewfinders change on these. Would like to have a dedicated 'AF-On' button.

Got this to replace our D90...like it way more. Vastly more responsive, better video, better image, just better. We actually use this as a backup wedding camera; although its consumer level its def pro-ish vibe. Like that it matches a lot of the features of my D700 including interval timer. Best way to spend $1000 on a camera. We use the nikon 35mm f/2 on it alot and its great--heard good things about the 35mm 1.8 DX but I'm not a fan of having lenses that can't be used on FX.
