Re: Thud?? No, Slam Dunk.

Is that really the AF coverage area drawn to scale? If so, this is basically a camera for center focus subjects. I hope that's not the case....

I think it's quite a nice small travel cam. The only thing that slightly worries me, is that using the D7000's AF module (albeit with tweaks), means that it covers even less of the frame than the D7000's did.

I don't actually have a problem like some with the D7000's AF from a working point of view, but coming from the D300 before that with it's full frame 51 point coverage, the D7000's looked a little sparse. Translate that now into a full frame sensor with the same AF module, and (on paper at least), it looks even worse ?

Forget the make, use your camera, take pictures...
