The grid is simple but effective I leave it on a lot of the time on my D90 (and D80) and also
on my Panasonic Point and Shoot for that matter.
I loved the idea of the D7000, but the D80/90 fit my hands and, more importantly, my problem wrists
a lot better.
Maybe one day there will be something else in a body like the D80 & 90
But for now I am more than happy with them both though mostly use the D90

I love my d7000. Only 10% heavier than the d90 . Yes slightly. Lot's more going for it though

I know - its the grip - I seriously considered one but the grip is less good for my hands with Arthritis in the wrists, plus where to you park your thumb it seems less easy for me
Would love one otherwise

Yes. the grip is a good bit larger. 
I have very bad arthritis from head to foot . My fingers don't look like fingers and I can't clench a fist with either hand.

It's actually the lenses that are so heavy. I would like a Nikon 80-400mm VR  but I would then have to use a tripod and can you imagine if I wanted to follow a
bird in flight the tripod legs would be flailing about and hitting people in the face. Ha ha

Larger grip and no where comfy for my thumb meant it was not for me

Oh
I find the grip only taller and much easier to handle . But  guess I have smaller hands.

Ok - the Grip is narrow gap, somehow D80/90 has a wider thumb area
I was quite surprised when I handled one.

Yes they do have much lager thumb area then the  d7000
Lots more megapixels though and 6 frames per second  on continuous shooting and can do almost a100 in one burst on the d7000

I love mine.   My wrists are week but my thumb joints are a bigger problem

I've been enjoying getting to know the 7100.  I haven't had much time but I'm pleased with most.  Glad my lenses fit.  Looking forward to getting out more as our spring arrives albeit very late this year.

Oh good. Yes when you buy a lens make sure you state your camera . Not all lenses fit. All the lenses you had for your D80 will fit

One thing I do each time I switch my camera on is first check the info . It is easy to turn the little dial inadvertently and find your camera on the wrong setting.

Then scroll through the menu and to 'Clean image sensor'. Make sure you hold the camera straight or sit it on a flat surface.  

Then off you go Smiley

Do you "Clean image sensor" all the time, Beryl?

Sorry Pat. Didn't see this. My PC has been crashing a lot lately. All sorted now

Each time I switch my camera on I do. Make sure you hold the camera straight or rest it on a table before you go out

Also check you info before you start shooting it s very easy to turn the dial inadvertently and change your settings when taking your camera out of your bag

Also check the little dot is in the middle of the viewfinder.
