not sure now whether i should get another or not, they arnt that easy to find from reputable dealers just now so it looks like ill be hanging on to my D90 for now
You did the right thing. There is nothing right about keeping something that you're just not sure of.

Hi guys,
Just received the 7000 and 150 500 a couple days ago. Haven't had much chance to use it, we have had absolutely no sun, snow every day since I got it, and to be honest I had no clue where to even start with it.
Took some shots on stationary items here and there, read an enormous amount on choosing settings and found a couple videos that were very helpful. Bottom line is it's a like getting a car loaded with all the goodies that you've never used before. I had a bit of trial and error, especially where focus came into play, and at this point I'm using manual mode to get accustomed to moving and working with the settings.
As I mentioned no sun which is not good for the 150 500 but I was going to town and saw a lab in a field. I stuck the camera out the window but didn't get a chance to shut off the car before he ran straight at me. I took a couple shots at around 30 to 40 feet and left.
Settings were 1/500 F8 and around 1000 ISO
Even though the shot was rushed in low light I can see this camera has possibilities. Shot was cropped.
Can't wait for a sunny day to see what this thing can really do.
Eric

Hi Eric,

We should be having some snow, here in the Northeast overnight. I hope you get a chance to go out and take a few pics of snow scenes in bright sun. That is something that the E-510 always had a tough time with. love to hear your assessments.
