Hi folks. I've been shooting with a D40 for the past 3 years and have been wanting for a new body for a while. Though I had my sights set on the D90, I waited a bit too long and out came the D7000. I'm mainly looking for a new body for the following reasons: 1. The D40's low-light capabilities are really keeping me from doing low-light photography. I find that the D40 has far more noise and dirtier pictures than even my GF1 at the same ISO. Pictures at ISO800 and above are noticeably noisy even after resizing, and it's of course even more noticeable under heavier post-processing. As a result I mostly shoot in the daylight at ISO200/400 (since the D40 only does full-stop ISO increments), but would much rather have some more flexibility in the situations in which I can shoot. It really vexes me that my tiny GF1 gives me cleaner pictures than the D40! 2. I want an in-body focus motor. Though I love my AF-S/HSM/SWM lenses, I honestly would've just purchased a 50mm f1.8D rather than my Sigma 50mm f1.4, and I have my sights set on an 85mm f1.8D (rather than the rumoured AF-S version, which is probably a few extra dollars). Getting a new body would let me save some coin in the future on lenses. If the D5100 had a built-in focus motor, I would gladly get that over the D7000, since I believe they have the same sensor. 3. I want to get a little more serious about video. My GF1 is great for spontaneous videos, but I'd love full manual control as on the D7000. It's my understanding that both the D90 and the D7000 would be an improvement upon my D40 in all of these respects. But what is the extra $600-700 or so getting me in the D7000? If I did get a D90, would I merely find myself wanting a D7000 in the near future? How do the low-light capabilities of the two cameras really compare? Anybody with experience with either of the cameras, please chime in. Cheers!
