    I've upgraded from the D5000 to D5100, which presumably does the same photo quality as your D7000 (without having the metal body and extra manual controls).

    I've found lenses (like a fixed lens sensitive to light and wide one), plus HD polarized Hoya filters) a good investment.

    The D5X00 line always have a great sensor. Just wish it had a bigger/brighter viewfinder and a 3' screen (for my D5000). All other cons I don't really mind.

    The sensors on the D5100 are a step up from the D5000, but the screen with higher resolution was also a selling factor for me for the the $400 upgrade.

    The Sigma (aka Bigma) 50-500mm

    Like I noted above, I'm still doing film photography.

    So my question to you (all) is this: what do you DO with a digital file?

    It's kind of hard to pass around a table, etc. My passing idea of what happens is that you make a print-out on an inkjet, which is a poor cousin to a film print.

    What "we" do (as in my lady friend and I) is use either an iPad or a digital picture frame. Easy to show lots of pictures in a convenient way given that you have either of them! :)

    I finally got my hands on Nikon D7000. It is amazing. Presently I only have the Nikkor 18-105mm lens but will expand soon. :)

    I have a 5100. No idea how to use anything other than the auto-setting. No time for a course and the manual is frustrating. Any thoughts?

    wouldnt say im a photographer as i really am just a spud with a camera, but i love taking sports photos, especially of the local footy (australian football, such a great game to photograph), motorsport and the tennis when i can go.

    I borrowed a Panasonic GM1 the other day..very good small camera with superb image quality.
    Pricey but worth it.

    Bought a 35mm lens 7-8 months ago. Terrific lens IMO.
