User experience.

This was my first DSLR camera and the reason I started learning Professional photography in 2012.

Over three years of learning photography I just used my Nikon D7000, 18-105mm lens and one old 135mm portrait lens with some minimum studio gear.

If learning photography is something you want to do I can definitely recommend this camera for that, I’m still using this camera now in 2019 for a professional job, shooting events mostly.

Nikon D7000 is tested for 150.000 cycles. (which is an AVERAGE number)

I bought my D7000 in December 2011, I still have it and use alongside with my Nikon D810 which I bought in January 2015, I have reached over 100k shutter count on my Nikon D7000.

I have heard stories about the shutter on the Nikon D7000 have gone to 286.000 cycles and then died, 130.000 more than Nikon gives up, I find this numbers crazy because I feel like I have taken so many pictures on my D7000 already even if I have only reached 100.000 cycles last 5 years.

Nikon D7000 Review and user experience – still good in 2020
