    D7000....looks pretty good.

    Some rumoured info on the D7000 specs....looks interesting. Native ISO possibly 100 and 1050 shots on a single battery charge.

    This is going to put the cat amongst the pigeons in terms of the mid-high level DX market....the 60D from Canon has been disappointing and people are suggesting it to be a Lemon, and this thing looks like it can go toe to toe with the 7D. I am definitely thinking about this camera, but will be really intrigued to hear the full specs as everything is suggesting it to be way out there.

    The big question now is where the heck are they going to take the D400 (and people are starting to wonder if it will be a super DX or an FX model), the D700 replacement and the D4.

    Nikon is going to be well and truly ahead of Canon by may next year in terms of bodies...hopefully though they dont take their foot off the pedal like after the D3/D300 upgrade.

    Heh...think you are safe there Ving...they are talking like 1100-1200 for it which would make sense. I reckon you are on the right track their leigh...for a DX user I suspect this will be most peoples new buy as a No. 2...with the D300/s being upgraded shortly it might see people doubleshot...particularly if they are using the D300. The only downside to me is the use of double slot SD cards which is just painful for us with a collection of CF.

    Certainly does look like more than just evolution of the series, they seem to have gone out of there way to make it quite a jump up from the base models and really not far behind where the D300 started out.

    Interesting times indeed.

    It's still missing AF lens calibration. I would love a camera like this as a long lens multiplier to back up my D700 but not without AF calibration.

    The Setup menu on the dpreview has 'AF fine tune' option same as the D300?

    The D300 doesn't have a 'virtual horizon' function so assume it's the real deal

    "Nine cross-type sensors at the most frequently used center of the frame allow for certain acquisition of the intended subject."

    I was hoping for cross at the edges for vertical portraits

    anyone catch if popup can command like D90?
