D-7000 dead. Upgrade to D-7100?
Aug 6, 2014

My D-7000 has taken its last image. It was the end of a day at an air show, and I had taken about 1700 images that day. (Burst mode racks up the number of images). Finally, the shutter jammed. The camera has just over 28,000 shutter actuations, a disappointingly low number. Nikon want about $400 to fix the camera so I am thinking about replacing the defunct body with a new D-7100. I would appreciate hearing any comments pro and con on the upgrade.

Just for interest, here is the last image taken.

Draken, Waddington 2014
