    D7000 has landed...

    One word - Whoa!

    http://www.dcresource.com/news/newsitem.php?id=4191

    Impressive stats all around.

    The SB700 may be on my Xmas wish list, since I can't afford the D7000 right now.

    IMO the D7000 is now the entry level pro camera rather than the top level amateur camera with the black shutter release button being the give-away..

    It looks to me like Nikons range strategy is now

    P&S Coolpix from cheap through to P7000
    then
    Not yet released EViL cameras
    then
    Amateur DSLR DX (3100,5100)
    then
    Pro DSLR DX (D7000, D300 series)
    then
    FX (D700 and above)

    I reckon they have every based covered (or will have with the EViL releases) with options in each market segment.

    $1199, that's pretty affordable. I almost pulled the trigger on a D300s last night, luckily I had some issues with my credit card.

    Looks like I'll be waiting a month or so

    Edit: It's got no PC socket, or am I just blind?

    PC as in Prontor/Compur connection

    As per DSLRB:

    1. PC connectors (sockets or terminals) are electrical connectors and wires used to connect cameras and flash units. They just carry a trigger current and do not carry digital data communications of any kind such as metering information. The “PC” here stands for “Prontor/Compur,” two manufacturers of leaf shutters used in older and large format cameras. It does not stand for “personal computer” in this context, and so a camera with a PC socket cannot be hooked up to a computer through it. Sometimes referred to as a “German” socket, the PC connector is notoriously unreliable, and exists today out of historical momentum.

    pretty sure kiwi knew what you were referring to anco, he was just pointing out what sort of connectors there are. highly unusual for a pc connecter at this level of camera...and unnecessary for 99.9% of users.

    What he said.
    If you want a PC connector in a low end camera in 2010 you will be holding your breath and awful long time I suspect.

    How is the D300s better than this...cause people have started saying this kills the D300s. I think I disagree but not sure if I should...

    I'm not sure that kills would be the right word but I'm thinking that it would be hard to justify buying a D300s today unless you already have a MB-D10.
    Size is an obvious difference, the D300s has more focus points that look to be spread across more of the screen and I suspect that within the menu system the D300s will be more customisable for the sorts of things that I'm told pros want to do.
    The D7000 appears to have a better movie mode and a newer sensor and new design AF sensor plus it has native ISO 100.
    I guess you need to keep in mind that the D300s is now 11 months old and well into it's production run so I guess this time next year we will be thinking how backward the D7000 is compared to the D???
