Tiny little thing compared to the D700 + grip. Won't probably be using it for stills that much but will definitely be shooting some video again, which nets me a lot more money. High ISO is typical Nikon :bowdown: Comparing some old video shot with my 7D and 5D and the D7000 is definitely cleaner when up around 3200-6400. No 60P, though :hs: All in all, it seems like a great camera for 1,200 bucks.

Cleaner? I find video noisier because it doesn't smooth out everything including details. Am I alone?

I'm pretty jelly. I've been really tempted lately by the Dark Side b/c of the ISO-performance, and the ergonomics in general. How's the AF in video on it though?

If Canon doesn't come back with a continuous AF model at a competitive price point, I might jump.

After shooting video with one a few weeks ago, I will now officially state that not being able to change aperture in live view/video mode = bullshit. So irritating. :mad:

Grats! I've been thinking of renting one for my trip to europe. :o but then I remember I'll be carrying a digital, and 2 film bodies already. :hs:

You weren't able to on Pentax, either. Is this an option on Canon, I assume? I couldn't imagine people would be shocked about it if it wasn't.

yes :o I do a lot of it when filming. I can adjust anything even during recording [iso/shutter/aperture]

.

The only thing that sucks is that I wish you could lock in shutter speed and then control aperture without hitting to hold the AV button (T2i). But yeah, I'm glad I found this out. I'm not as tempted by the D7k as much now. :hs:
