The Bottom Line An overall excellent camera, but one that fails to capture the best-in-class prize for image quality. An excellent dSLR for experienced shooters or Nikon professionals looking for a relatively cheap option, the Nikon D7000 delivers on almost all counts, including the company's best shooting design to date. The Nikon D5200 makes a great choice for family and vacation photographers. An excellent midrange dSLR, the Canon EOS 7D delivers for the money. While it's still a great prosumer dSLR, the D7100 may only be worth the extra cash if you need a faster Nikon right now.
