Thanks for the info.
Maybe you could help us with our TV room: Sitting facing the TV, our den has windows on almost an entire side of the room, it gets moderately to very bright, quite often.
We do have vertical blinds that can be angled to direct a little of the light away from the screen, but that's about it; (we aren't willing to close them, typically).
Also, there are two windows on the TV wall (one to either side of the TV), and they direct sunlight towards a large art piece, covered with matte acrylic, behind our seating, which reflects onto the TV.
I had been wondering, if we could get by with less than the D7000; now it sounds like the D7000 would be just be 'different' than D6500, depending on the type and direction of lighting, at any given time.
The thing is, as I describe above, our TV room is different than your TV room, so, I don't know which TV would be better for us?
