    Just got my new camera but im worried

    I finally upgraded to a Dslr (Nikon d7000) and I am loving it so far, but i keep seeing people talking about all the problems it has with the sensor. So i was thinking about returning it and moving to a Canon 7D. I know the cameras aren't to different in specs but i just want to be "safe" and be stuck with a faulty camera.

    Oh and my names Will :P Nice to meet ya

    Other than me, I've not heard of anyone else having sensor problems. A friend and I bought ours at the same time and his has been gold all the way. Mine is still not where I want it, and we are negotiating a return for a new body. I think there was such a rush to get them out into the market, they fell short on some of their earlier QC. I firmly beleive this has been remedied and I wouldn't think you would have a problem.

    Thanks for the reply Chris.

    I forgot to mention that the day i bought my d7000 their was 3 hotspots on the screen, two red and one blue. I took it back to the store right after i noticed them and they replaced the whole thing. I thought it was just a lemon until i saw that more people have had this problem. I just dont want them to appear again after my 14 day return timeframe is up.

    Will,

    The only purpose of the middle-classes is to worry They (sorry, we) worry about our pension plans, e-coli on cucumbers, getting the latest Audi model, having the right smart-phone, letting our kids out to play, and, it would seem, the reported sensor problems of the Nikon D7000. I'm fairly certain that if there was a problem with the sensor that Nikon would sort it out very quickly. They have a huge reputation to maintain at a time when global double-dip recession is on the menu. But, of course, I could be quite wrong about that, which just gives you something else to worry about.

    Stop reading dpreview (you'll end up a pixel peeping, ranting, robotic sheep lunatic) and go out with your camera - its awesome.

    Not sure where you live, but Nikon has a full year warranty on the whole shebang, so that's not a terrible worry.

    Rob, I think you may give the camera companies too much credit...

    I don't know about Nikon but, I do know that Canon produced a lemon in the original issue of the 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS (not the recent "L" model) which had focus problems in many copies when you were between 200mm and 300mm and in the portrait configuration. After adamently denying there was any problem for a long while, Canon quietly took the lens off the market for a time and remedied the problem.

    The key phrase above is "After adamantly denying there was any problem for a long while". Canon would not admit there was a problem so would not fix the lenses sent back to them. That is the reason I never bought that lens. My local Calumet camera store had three of these lenses in stock one day and swore there was no problem. The next day, they had none because Canon had recalled the lenses they had in stock.

    However, I scored very well on that deal because while I was waiting for the return to the streets of the 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS lens; Canon brought out the 70-200mm f/4L IS. I jumped on that lens and never looked back. Apparently, after DECIDING THERE ACTUALLY WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE 70-300mm LENS, Canon finally fixed it.

    Hi Will, I know three folks with the D7000 and no problems, they love it! I was just wondering if anyone is waiting for the D7100?

    You are kidding?

    It's only been out a few months, it has the best crop sensor on the market today, it has pretty much every feature a top-end amateur camera should have and Nikon are selling them faster than they can be made.

    It's like I said above - middle-class angst.
