I have the Nikon D7000 and I love it! No cons, it's fast, sharp, small enough for my girl hands, tons of custom settings - LOVE!!

Great image stability, water resistant which is great for dewy mornings, and very durable. You wouldn't believe what I've put my camera through and it still is working like the first day I bought it.

I will tell you though that just because you get an expensive camera does not mean you will get great shots. It is the photographer that makes the camera not the other way around. One of my best photos taken to this day were taken with a cheap point and shoot. Has won multiple awards, my best seller, and has even recieved photo of the year in an international contest.

If you want to see some examples here is a link to one of my portfolios.Horses - dingoimages' Photos
Just wanted to say that I love your work! It's so artistic and powerful, you have a great talent!!

I use a Canon EOS 500D and I adore it! Mostly use a 50mm f.1.8 lens.

My daughter has a Nikon D5000 that we use to take pics of our harness racing. I have yet to be disappointed :)

I use a Canon XSi, great camera for the price! Not the best indoors but it's not to bad.

A few photo's I took the other day in a dark indoor arena.
