What the Reviews (Mostly) Don't Tell You is just how tiny the D7000 is. I cannot believe how seldom this is mentioned, and i have never seen it emphasized. However, I have read the opposite.
I almost bought a D7000, then I finally got to try it in a shop. Man, is it small! Can't get a grip on it at all, so tiny. And feels like a little plastic toy, despite its high spec, partial metal body, and weather sealing. It was a relief to get home and hold my old D70 again.
I can't stretch to a D700, so I've ordered a D300s. Plenty good enough, spec-wise, and a far more reassuringly hefty camera to hold, and therefore to use.
