Nikon D7000...everything the 60D should have been but wasn't?

Wow, nice specs. Sad to see the 60d leapfrogged before anyone even has one in their hands.

I still see it as two different strategies,

Canon needed a camera in between the t2i and the 7d
Nikon needed a camera in between the d5000 and the d300s (I'm pretty sure it's the d5000 but I'm not on the up and up with my Nikon stuff)

So Canon came up with something weighted towards the lower end, Nikon went the other way but price wise looks like Nikon wins with ease on this one.

Why am I tempted to sell my 5DII, 16-35LII, 24-105L, and 85/1.8 for a Nikon D7000, 16-35VR, 35/1.4G, 50/1.4G, and 85/1.4G?

Am I crazy?

Nikon bodies are just too tempting.

And while my 5DII works just fine...the AF is ANCIENT!!!

Exactly that, its different product placement strategies by the companies.
D7000 just looks better based on features-per-dollar.
I'd still recommend the 60D to my beginner friends, I prefer canon color rendition.

Nikon has never impressed me with color rendition.. I would sooner pay the $$$ for MF Zeiss glass.

THIS IS BEAUTIFUL

This forces canon to have AF in movies for their next lineup. Sony and now Nikon has it. I'm excited to see the new 7D2 and 5D3. I personally am a fan of the new 60D articulated screen just of the way I like to capture images (shots where the normal eye doesn't see) especially for weddings; this should make shooting a lot easier.

However, this new D7000 just pretty much kills the new 60D. I thought this body would costs around 1500 when I was checking out the review. But thats with the lens. Its only 1200, jeez.... This camera stacks up well against the 7D. Seems like the high ISO pictures will be good as well..

The D7K will force Canon to really step it up and think of something new. They can't just try to match what Nikon is doing right now :) AF in Live Mode? Haha, I wouldnt be surprised if someone already offers that. This would be sweet with an articulated screen.

To me, until Nikon comes out with a 17-55mm f/2.8 VR lens, their crop stuff aren't as attractive, and when they have one it's surely going to be more $$$ then Canon's.

Their 24-120 f/4 is priced quite competitively, so if you're 24-105 f/4-ers, feel free to switch.

Their 24-70 f/2.8 is quite a few hundred $ more than Canon's.

Remember they don't even give out their RAW converter for free. Lots of potential hidden costs here and there.

Interesting...I can't find the 2.5fps claim in any of the launch documentation (or otherwise). I know that was the case with the D300/D300s, but the later D700 was not crippled in that manner and I can't see any documentation suggesting the new Expeed2-equipped D7000 is hampered at 14-bit. Can you provide a link to where you got this information?

Sorry, jumped the gun on that one. Was looking at a d300 comparison. But I don't doubt the fps will be crippled at 14-bit when it says "up to 6fps"

Actually, if you look at the specs on Amazon, it says 12 bit or 14 bit at 6fps.

Say farewell to missed opportunities. The D7000 incorporates a new driving mechanism to conduct its remarkably fast and precise mirror movements, giving you an approx. 0.052 second release time lag and an approx. 0.13 second start-up time. What’s more, you can continuously shoot at approx. 6 frames per second at both 14-bit and 12-bit A/D conversion for RAW shooting.

Well, Canon was likely going after the D90 with the 60D, then Nikon raised the bar (again... substantially).

Currently, the D300s and the 7D compete, but I guess we'll see what the D300s gets replaced with. :lol:

I think you're right. I'm wondering if Canon will now make a price adjustment down in the next couple of months to counter.

Yeah, that would be a little weird... unless you would rather have a crop body over a full frame body.

Wow, that 0.052 sec (52 ms) shutter lag time puts the D7000 into 1D Mark IV territory.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the new sensor does high ISO and colour rendition. This could be an absolute killer camera, and Canon will have to reduce prices to compete, or introduce a new model sooner rather than later.

Canon isn't going to respond until they drop the d700 successor.
