WOW! The Nikon D7000 Over-Delivers In Spades!

Nikon D7000 DSLR

So I'm reading the Nikon D7000 specs, and this little voice in my head keeps saying, "Thank you, thank you, thank you Nikon" over and over again. :-)

This thing ROCKS!

Dual card slots!

AF fine tuning to dial in your lenses!

1/8000 shutter speed!

Manual video control!

Partial Magnesium alloy body with weather sealing!

And those are just the surprises!!! We got everything else we were expecting too!

16 megapixel sensor, full 1080 HD video, external mic jack for the video, AF-F continous video focus, new 39 point AF system... and the list goes on! Check it out at Nikon's website

Does sound very much like heading in the direction I wanted i.e. Teens Mpx + Video.

But as a D200 owner desperate to update/upgrade I don't think I'll go for it as range-wise it would feel like a step down.

D700 - no video
D300s - doesn't feel worth it - too much of a sideways move.

So I'm STILL waiting for the 400/800 or equivalent.

I guess historicaly the Dxx and Dxxx have gone hand in hand sensor wise. So there may be a semi-pro version of this camera soon - with a bit more "oomph".
