Ready to Upgrade: D7000 or D90????
Aug 1, 2012

I've owned a Nikon D100 since 2003, and I think I'm finally ready to pull the trigger on a new camera. I don't want to because I really love this camera, but I think I've finally come the realization that I'm shooting with a dinosaur. It was my 5th SLR, first DSLR, and by far my favorite of the bunch. I have narrowed my choices to the D7000 or the D90 because they seem to be the closest as far as layout and feel to what I am using now. The D90 is a legend, and I can get it for about $400 less than a D7000, so my question is: Is the D7000 worth the extra money? I already have a good HD 1080 camcorder, so video performance is not that important to me. I do alot of crawling around on rocks and near water doing nature shots, so the weather seal on the 7000 appeals to me. I'm just not sure it's worth $400. After all, my D100 has survived for 9 years without it. I don't mind spending the extra money if the 7000 is an all around better camera (My D100 cost me $1200 9 years ago), but I also don't want to throw money away if I don't need to. Anyone used both of these cameras who can give me a real world comparison? I am open to other Nikon suggestions too, but I don't want to spend more than what I can get a D7000 for.
