That list doesn't account for some in the second lot having multiple camera bodies.

No, just their stated experience in general.

For example, Swedish Hambern had four or five D700 bodies before he got one that focused OK. Just saying.

Every body he has had has been a negative experience for him....the current ones does terrible skin tones that can only be corrected with software..it's still a bad camera

If you look at Ray Soars Pbase site, you may disagree, but I find the portraits taken with his D300 are far superior than the more recent ones taken with the D7000 where skin-tones are concerned.

As Ray has pointed out many times...the skin tones he gets with the D7000 exactly match the skin tones of his subjects in reality. Many are just not used to the natural skin tones of his subject that results from there wonderful genetic heritage.

That would carry some weight if it didn't look(to me) like other D7000 shooters have the same genetic heritage (when in reality they haven't).

This is no slight on Ray because I think he's one of the better and more knowledgeable folk on here. I think he did a sterling job squeezing every little bit out of those two camera's, but was able to squeeze better skin tones out of the D300. This is no more than my opinion, but it's my honest opinion.

Ray's site has little to do with why Swedish Hambern thinks his current copy does terrible skin tones...I think a perfect body would still lead to a negative experience for him....So even rays examples wont move him to the other column

I must admit that sometimes I see what SH is referring to and sometimes not. Colour has to be the most elusive and subjective element of digital photography and as such, there will never be a complete consensus as to which camera is best and rendering it. You can see all the scientific data that says that camera A has better colour rendition than camera B and yet still prefer the colour of camera B. Mako, I respect your view (honest) and that of other happy D7000 owners and if I agreed, I'd probably have bought one by now, but I have to go with my heart and it's not in it for the D7000 skin tones and I'm not the only one
