If you've not already caught it, Nikon got Chase Jarvis to do another preview film, and as before, it's got some pretty neat stuff in it: http://blog.chasejarvis.com/blog/2010/09/nikon-d7000/

His bandana looks like mine and he's wearing it the same way. :shock:

Looks like a great camera - it's fast, the video mode is much better than on the D90.
What I probably like most is the possibility to use two SD cards. It's always quite... well... bad if someone asks for the pictures and you have to meet again to give the pictures to the other person - and it costs time. now if you know someone wants the pictures you can just give this person the second card. Nice. :wink: That's something I'd like to see on a payable Canon camera. :roll:

I was wrong. The Nikon rep here says you are correct. :)

The D7000 is now cheaper than my D80 was when launched so I'm now quite interested to see how the D90 and it's replacement's pricing is lowered.

It looks like it's fare better than the 60D from Canon.
This one looks really really nice.
I think many more people will go for this Nikon, but we have to see.

Hi Graham,

Thanks for that, though it'll take me a while to read through the entire piece and find the reference. My guess is that it's no accident that there's a D5xxx line and a now D7xxx line. Maybe Nikon will retire the D90 some time in the future and then, once the dust has settled, announce a D6000 but that discussion isn't really for this thread. 8)

Update: Ah, I found it in the video. 8)

Bob.

Looking at the photos produced by that 16.2 sensor, this looks promising.

In the newsletter from Nikon Germany the D7000 is positioned as the "bigger sister". Interesting and well fitting to the interpretation that the D90 might tag along until a D5100 will leave no economically viable place between it and the D7000.
And I totally agree: the D7000 is cramping perilously in on the space of the D300s.
The question that nags me most: What will Nikon position between the D4 and the D7000? Perhaps a D700-successor, that is a FX-body?
Don't know how the sales figures of the D300 compare to the D700. Might be Nikon drew any conclusions from it...

What should for now be the main reason to buy a D300s instead of the D7000?
They look to be about the same...

I would think the 300s is still a better “sport” shooter with 8fps vs 6 and 51AF points vs 39. And since pros sweat the details it would still prevail.

Even tougher built, greater burst rate, more customization options, arguably better handling, greater support for older lenses, CF memory cards...

Still, as it has been said, this little one one can put to shame many of the D300s specs, but pros will surely wait for the D400.

How about the pro line of accessories that are not usable on the D7000? I bet not many would want to trade all their expensive accessories for the less functions of the D7000 accessories.

Despite that Nikon finally seems to have jumped the MP bandwagon, this has officially ended my yearning for a semipro body (although I still like the bulk of them) 8)

I wasn't implying Nikon shouldn't charge for in-body GPS if they had fitted the D7000 with one, I was saying that, IMHO, it wouldn't have been too expensive, as exemplified by many compacts that feature it and don't cost much more than their counterparts without GPS. I also fail to see what a grip powered FPS boost has to do with a GPS...


it's a better option. this camera probably already has GPS capabilities, but i would sacrifice that for 8fps.

but that would be stepping on the dx00n's toes.

looks like this camera is designed for you to want the higher end.

you may start off with a d7000, but the 31 focus points will leave you wanting 51, and the 6 fps will leave you wanting 9 fps, and so on...


I'm photographing a wedding in Nepal next year. This MIGHT be the camera that accompanies me to that.

i wonder if, and if it does, how much, it will drop the price on the D90. I really like the looks of this new camera, but if it's launch significantly drops the price of the D90, then the D90 might be the one i go for..

The D90 is already low priced, but might drop in price near the end of the year, when the camera is supposed to be phased out while stocks last.

Great to see the spec at last. I've always been happy with my D80 but can't wait to see the full review with the D7000, very exciting! :D
