but it's the same dimensions of the D90, which feels a bit too small in my hands compared to the 7D. Does anyone know if the D7000 feel about the same as the D90?
The D7000 feels very much like the D90 - too small for my hands too.

Canon 7D: http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_EOS_7D/
"It may not boast the full-frame sensor and the ultimate image quality of the 5D Mark II, but in every other respect it excels. Taking everything into consideration, the EOS 7D is arguably Canon’s most successful and satisfying overall DSLR to date." Nov 2009

(84%) "If you can justify the price tag it's hard to fault Canon's new APS-C flagship. With class-leading image quality, fast operation and excellent handling the EOS 7D is everything a semi-pro model should be, and the excellent movie mode will be a welcome bonus to those that like their pictures to move. Arguably the best APS-C SLR on the market today." Nov 2009
Nikon D7000: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/nikond7000/
(80%) "The D7000 produces great image quality and feels very responsive in most shooting situations. It shines especially in low light. From a specification point of view a 16.3 MP resolution sensor, 6 frames per second continuous shooting, 1080p full HD video and an abundance of customization options place this camera firmly into the upper end of the mid-range segment of the market.
