    Just shoot with what you have now. Read the manual of your camera body and Dry Cabinet for the beginning.
    Depends how fast you learn, this setup should be good for you at least 3 months.
    One other thing you might want to consider to buy is a camera bag. The freebie tripod should also be replaced. However, you can choose to spend one or two times with it to learn its weakness before you replace it.

    Came with the following free gifts:
    Lens Cleaning Kit
    Camera Case
    SD Card Reader
    Camera Tripod
    8GB (Class 4) and 16 GB (Class 10) SDHC Card
    Screen Protector
    62mm UV Filter
    Electronic Dry Cabinet

    Just wondering if I need further equipment to properly maintain and use the camera.

    Thanks.
    Yours come with so many free gifts! even the dry cabinet. I'm gonna get a dry cab tml cos mine doesn't come with it. And remember to get the free 50mm lens from nikon!

    Is the Tamron 17-50mm a better Lens compare to the 18-105mm kit lens?

    Thanks
    I have the exact same setup and it work great.
    D7000 can pair with SB-600 also if u want.

    Tamron is better than the 18-105 kit for the f2.8-ness , but u lose the reach (to be augumented by a telephoto lens)

    But the 18-105 is a very good lens on its own as well.

    It seems like I have the same problem. I check picture taken with my camera 2 weeks after the purchase and I found the spots is there with F22.
    I asked my friend to try it to (he also just purchased D7000 for around 2 weeks) and he also have it.

    I try to use blower to remove dust carefully from sensor but only small spots managed to be removed and I still have 2 solid spots at f/22 so heading to NSC this week because I'm not sure now whether it is dust or oil.
    Since I only know one person with D7000 that I can asked to check I'm not really sure whether it is common in D7000 but here I found another case.

    If others want to check their D7000 dust/spots on the sensor, you can try to shoot at blank paper with F/22, better with low shutter speed and shake the paper a bit to create smooth blur picture where if there is spot you can directly see it.
    I am new to DSLR so I'm not sure whether it is common to have spots for new camera but to me it doesn't make sense to always come back to NSC to clean the sensor.

    Hi, can i check if there is any spot if you shoot at F22 and below? Because under normal circumstances i will not shoot at F22. I have not tried shooting at F22 yet but i will go and try.

    really lucky lor! hahaha!

    I havent tried blowing. for those who want to test, just place the white paper on the floor and shoot at f22 or higher. don't need to shake. the spots will come out if there are any.

    I have already went down to NSC. they will deem it as dust. But the fact is that after they clean up the sensor, without changing lens, i shot a couple of frames and afew spots came back. But they insisted that it is dust and i dunno what else can i say... so i LL.... And they gonna charge u 20 odd bucks for the cleaning of sensor...

    If you love D7000, prepare to learn sensor cleaning yourself....

    This can happen to any DSLR camera body. If you expect to have 100% spanking clean sensor, pls use only one lens, never detach or simply dun use DSLR at all.

    Having OCD to clean sensor will spoilt it before ur shutter mechanism fails, better to clean ur output in photoshop than to constantly cleaning the sensor.

    Think only for TK foto. Others should still have. I still see people having it on the day I bought. Try John 3:16. Great service. I just bought a 60l dry cabinet from there just now for $200. Free delivery too!
