Yes, it most certainly is...

That consumerism for you.  For D7000 is still very close to class leading in the top tier for IQ performance, yet the gear heads and so-called "expert reviewers" try to convince that you should upgrade.

OK, if you are still shooting with a D200 or D70, it may be time for an upgrade. But a D7000 "long in the tooth"?  How ridiculous.

Contrary to what DPR's "expert" reviewers wrote when it came out, the D7000 is about as good as it gets in APS-C deserving of a Gold Award just as much as the D7100 (or most of the other Gold Award Cameras) that DPR has reviewed.   Because DPR missed the boat in their original review of the D7000 (Silver Award, really?), and weren't able to see what DxOMark and others have noted about the D7000's at the time class leading IQ performance, speaks more about their ability (or inability in this case) to assess camera performance.  That they are now trying to convince people that the D7000 is "long in the tooth" is absolutely laughable.  But I guess the ultimate goal of reviewers is to sell cameras.

Disclosure:  I'm not a D7000 owner, just someone who agrees with the OP.
