I didn't think the D7000 would be that much of a jump from my D5100 but I have been pleasantly surprised. Focus is fast and IQ seems to be a little better but that may be more of a factor of the larger file size giving me a little more to work with.
Nice shots and I only mention the following because I think the first one could be even better with just a bit of processing. A bit dark, it's looks a little lopsided as in sloping down to the right and the people on the stairs are a distraction.
Yes Don, more so, South Eastern Australia. I thought I had put it in my profile bit, oops. I shot this with the basic settings it came with, but it looks to me as if the focus is a bit behind the kangaroos, and I dodged the exposure a bit in NX2 as it was a little dark. It doesn't help that I need glasses, so for me it is about knowing where all the buttons are by feel.
I so need to learn to take control of what I want in the image captured.....
