Why does no one complain about the D7000 grip?

Now what have they done to the D7000 grip.

The D80/90/200/300 all feel great in my big hands.
But the best DX camera today feels terrible. :confused:


Where my fingertips go, the grip isn't deep enough.
The part where the thumb keeps the camera balanced is flattend.

i tried a D700 for a few shots & it felt pretty good
i did notice it was very light but then i'm used to a gripped D200 & now a D2Xs so it was always going to feel smaller
i remember it having a nice slightly rubbery feel to it unlike the other hard plastic feeling smaller Nikons i've tried :smile:

I never think about it. It feels fine to me. Only thing that irritates me a little is my pinkie always pulls the rubber cap off some plug-in I haven't even bothered to see what is yet.

Honestly, going from a D90 to a D7000 -- I noticed a small difference in the grip immediately. But then got used to it in less than a day and don't even think about it anymore.

What I do think about is that the D7000 feels somewhat more solid than a D90.

Too busy taking images with Nikon's best value in DSLR's....actually I was waiting for the D400 but the D7K felt so good in my hands versus the larger Dxxx series that I felt it was a better fit for me.
