I would like to see more discussion of the D7000's colors with JPEGs. My wife's employer has decided to allow them to use personal cameras and lenses, as attrition, and the better cameras being claimed by the lab, first meant that the investigators had to share cameras, and more recently, there have not been enough cameras in a good state of repair. My wife had been using a D300s, but it went to the lab, so she has been sharing a couple of D200 cameras with other investigators.
My wife's agency uses only Nikons, and personal cameras used on the job must be Nikons. Photos are for evidentiary purposes, and are uploaded as JPEGs.
We went shopping yesterday, just to look and handle at this point, and my wife really liked the handling qualities of the D7000. Light weight is good, due to a recent rotator cuff injury. The mention of "wonky" colors, however, is a concern, but if out-of-camera JPEG colors are good, that is suitable.
Why only JPEGs? These images must suit the legal system. Each step of processing must withstand legal scrutiny. It is the same with my employer; I wear a badge for a different government entity, and must also submit JPEGs.
