    Question Help: Confused...to keep or sell my D7000?



    I have been shooting with my Sony A6000 and it seems that the D7000 is just being left out of the picture now.

    Each and every time I will find myself reaching for the A6000 due to its better AF and size/weight.
    Even with the SELP18105G f/4 attached, it is much lighter than the D7000 with the Sigma 17-50mm f/2.8 as my go to all around lens.

    If I require a fast prime, my A6000 has either SEL35F18 or SEL50F18 to cover those ranges.
    On the Sony's wide end I have the SELP1650 or the SEL20F28 with UWA converter @ 15mm.
    Tele I have SEL55210 zoom.

    The advantages of the D7000 is on the wide end with the Tokina 12-24mm f/4 & tele AF-S 70-300mm.

    As far as macro goes, the A6000 has the SEL30M3.5...not much reach, but sharp for stationary object.
    I have the AF-S 40mm f/2.8 micro & Sigma 90mm f/2.8 macro for the D7000.

    The plus about the Sony A6000 is that I have the Fotodiox Pro Nik (G) - NEX D-Click lens adapter, so I can use the Nikon lenses in MF mode.

    The value of the D7000 is also a concern, since it is aging and decreasing.

    So what should I do?
    Should I sell the D7000?

    Any feedback/advice/suggestions will be very helpful!

    That's a question none of us can answer. that's entirely up to you. Shoot with whatever you're comfortable with. Totally personal decision, bud.

    But....if you DO sell the D7000....you have to leave here and go and join a Sony forum. After all....this IS a Nikon forum, right?

    Anyway...you decide. No rush.

    I think you answered the question already. You love the Sony, you reach almost every time for the Sony. And if you think the money you get from selling your D7000 you can invest in some Sony Equipments, do it. If you don't need an invest now keep the D7000 for a backup.

    That's what so confusing...I do find the D7000 to be a great camera.
    It feels more comfortable & stable in hand, but the size and weight makes it less convenient compared to the Sony...plus the images from both are very similar.
    The Sony A6000 is actually compared to the D7100 image quality.

    Decisions...decisions?

    I guess you don't shoot too much in manual modes,, I would sorely miss the controls of the two front and back control dials, one for aperture, and the other
    for speed, and Nikon keeps that feature right up thru the pro line. So, while I understand the reduced size,, but loosing the controls,, along with the
    decrease sensor size,, reducing the shallow depth of field,, mmmm I would have said upgrade to D600,, but,, if you LOVE the Sony, and simplicity
    of the auto modes,, then makes sense to sell the D7000,,

    you can still get between 500 to 600 dollars for the awesome D7000..

    that said, thanks for the vote on the Sony,, I'll keep and eye out for when they go fire sell (when Sony upgrades),, or black Friday etc,,
    with a lens adapter,, would make a good when you can't carry easily the SLR,,

    I think the Sony's A6000 sensor is the same size as the D7000 but with 24mp. So IQ wise, it can even be a bit sharper. Lens availability and controls though...

    As far as I'm concerned, I'd go with the camera that offers me the most. If your you it's the A6000, your sin will one day be forgiven. For me, I'm just too darn used to the SLR, DSLR feel, with buttons and dials that do stuff. That's why I try to avoid the 3X00 and 5X00 series of Nikons.

    To each his own.

    Hmmmm it seems like I already saw a thread like this. Who knows! Lol

    But I'm a huge Nikon fan, and would tend to stay in this brand but change models if needed to suit me.
    That said, go with what you have more fun with. Go with the camera that makes you want take photos. If that is Sony, then go with the Sony. But if you have a serious shot your wanting, and you pull out the Nikon to get it, then keep the Nikon too. Otherwise you might as well sell the camera you don't really want to use much anymore.

    Yep different strokes. I am selling Nex 6 the LA-EA2 adapter and Nikon, M42 and Canon MF adapters and a lot of A mount high end glass to come back to Nikon.

    Primary reason for move is I will go to full frame soon ( likely a D700 ) and I just can't quite dial in the Sony EVF tech. Bought a near mint D300 to learn the menus and functions. Keeping 2 Sony A700's a Minolta Maxxum 35-105 original, Beercan and two primes for now as backups.

    If you move to Sony Dyxum.com and talkemount.com are both 5 star forums. Very similar vibe to this forum actually.

    My stuff is listed on Providence craigslist BTW perhaps there is something of interest for you. The LA- EA2 adapter is fantastic on the Nex 6 would be even better on the A6000. My 2 high end 2.8 Maxxum lenses remain and a Sony 35 1.8. Three other lenses are gone.


    good luck with the new gear!
