Default Nikon d7000 with new lens

Just got the 24-120 VRII. So far I like the lens very much. I've not tried it on my D3s yet but mainly got it as a walk around lens for the D7000. I've still not decided if I will sell my 24-70 2.8.

I have just made a trip to the Mosel region in Germany using exactly the same equipment as you , it's a great walkabout lens fitted on a great body giving plenty of possibilities thanks to it's high ISO performance

Nice compostion, detail and sharpness. Colors are a bit high in saturation for my liking but still good nonetheless.

Excellent shots from your D7000. Ive had mine a couple of months. Ive noticed spots in my pics now and using canned air doesnt seem to work. Its not the viewfinder since the spots only show up on the final files. They are particularly noticeable in light areas like the sky. Ive been told its from excess oil spashing off the mirror when it flips. Having your camera out in the heat might make the oil even more loose causing it to splash on the sensor. Keep your eye out for it. And if anyone has a safe way to clean the sensor. The incamera function doesnt do it.

Ditto on the above.

I've wet cleaned my D300s a couple of times with good results since the in-camera funtion nor the rocket blast of air did not work. I use the instructions and supplies recommended here http://www.cleaningdigitalcameras.com/

Please don't use canned air. Invest in a bulb type blower for that specific task. The liquid propellant can make it through to the nozzel and can ruin a sensor. At the very least the liquid to gas conversion leads to a temperature difference several degrees colder than ambient.
