lys: What a waste of my time reading this. Shame on you, DP. Who's bright idea to publish this.

I think you need to go and learn to be objective. As you can see your opionion is far less popular than the article. Shame on you i say!

MPA1: This always makes me laugh.

A professional photographer is a person who earns his living from photography, not some sort of photographic demigod with inherent genius.

Some of the finest photographers I know are amateurs - i.e. they have day jobs (and why wouldn't they? Photography is not a great way to earn a living in terms of earning capacity when compared to accountancy or the law!).

I make my living from photography and it really is hard, and whilst my clients have no cause for complaint I certainly do not believe that professional status confers automatic genius on me. Most of the time I think it calls into question my sanity, to be honest!

We may have some better skills than many amateurs but mainly because we get a whole lot more practice. One likes to believe that there is some talent as well, of course, but practice is what refines talent like nothing else can.

I hate the word professional, its so misleading. What makes that person a professional. I know many amateurs better than most that call themselves professional. I earn money taking photos but will never call myself anything other than a photographer.

I think the article is an interesting one and addresses some good points. I don't think slagging off opinions is in anyway constructive. Lets be objective.

SergeyMS: I think that time of heavy bricks is over. Both of cameras have this disadvantage before new generation like SONY NEX 3-5-7, and others pocket-size cameras with good quality of picture. But Nikon's controls are the most convenient I ever seen. I like Nikon for these two things - controls and reliability. But I am very disappointed with quality of image of my D7000... Last years, I think, Canon and Nikon have lost their advantage as the most prestigious camera manufacturers.

Most people when they start with a D7000 get soft images. If you actually learn more about your camera and functions you will find that its actually a very good camera indeed. I use a D3s and D800 but also have a D7000 as a backup and its a superbly capable camera. Learn what you can do by adjusting your settings and invest in some decent glass and you will then see what your camera is really capable of.
