It's true that entry level users have low expectations.   It is also true that a mid level cam like the D7k gives the buyer certain expectations ...after all, 39 AF points ...etc.

So the unit is good, but not that great. It's still a relatively cheap unit, and performs as such.

Then there are the host of D7k users to whom the 7k is a wonderful machine.  They don't have much aspriration for a higher end cam.   So when someone has a minor complaint or issue with it, they become unreasonably defensive of the cam that to them, was superior to what they used before.

It is sometimes user error...from inexperienced users, and it is also a simple fact that you get what you pay for...and the D7k is merely mid-level...when some of us were hoping it was more than we paid for.  But that didn't happen, as it seldom does in any field.
