What we have this week is a guest-supplied full-size sample images for the new Nikon D7000. The new mid-range DLSR from Nikon boasts arguable the cleanest high-ISO files available for a crop-sensor camera.
For these images, I’d like to thank Mr. Arnold Cruz (a member of Nikon Club Philippines) for allowing me to post his images. According to Arnold, the images of the Nikon D7000 are shot with a Nikon D90 + 50mm f/1.8.
