Ummm... lets see...

1. It MIGHT have better noise
2. It MIGHT have better dynamic range
3. It has worse AF and FPS
4. It has LESS resolution (I am not sure why you say it doesn't matter, except maybe it doesn't matter for you)
5. 7D has magnesium alloy body
6. 7D has 1080p

I don't know all the specs, but the 7D also has a lot of neat features like orientation linked AF point, flash commander, microadjust, etc. At BEST the D7000 is about equal with the 7D IMO.

Am I missing something? I hardly see how the D7000 blows the 7D out of the water except that it's name has 3 more zeros, unfortunately, 0+0+0 = 0.

also not sure if the D7000 has weather-sealing. The video also lacks 50/60p which is huge for me otherwise i might have tried it out.

The D7000 has both an alloy body and weather sealing--the official release HERE (external link)

Why do people say? "Why are you worried about specs, your taking pictures?"
If that was the case we would all be using a 10D, D70, 5d classic.
We like the specs because they help us do the job easier. I would not use the MkII over ISO 2200 or the 7D over ISO 1600 ( from what people say ) To be able to use a Cropped sensor over 1600 with images as clean as the MKII possibly (seeing it does native 6400) will make my life with a 70-200 much better, keeping the shutter speed high as possible.

To have a consumer Camera with those specs is a break through and a game changer.
I can’t wait to see Canons response it can’t come quick enough. Getting to my original point...
I guess we are waving the white flag in regards to Canon having a cropped sensor camera with these sorts of specs anytime soon? I just don’t want to buy a 7D and Canon release something like the D7000 soon.
I feel dirty and hesitant buying a 7D knowing there is something cheaper that looks on paper better.
I heard Chase Jarvis freaked out when he used this Camera it was so good.

Gulp; guess I could get a 1D MkIII.

D7000 is better than 7D regarding value per dollar

to you. the value of a piece of gear varies by the person imo. The 8fps from the 7D may be worth the entire price of the camera for someone.

If you honestly believe that having Expeed2 processor and faster frame rate and alloy body will make you a better photographer then go and get that camera. People should stop crying every time Canon or NIKON release a new camera....just saying it.

Depends right?! Does a set of Snap-on tools make someone a better mechanic?!

You miss the point. Im just saying is Canon going to release a Camera like the d7000 soon? NO yes? Our guess is no!

So I buy a 7D, well not now. The D7000 will make me wait.

All I was asking is there something likely to be in the pipeline.

If I got the 7d 3 monthes ago, I live with it.

I never said I was going to buy a Nikon, only that I feel dirty paying good hard earned on a 7D knowing the D7000 is out there and cheaper and there is nothing like that from Canon.

I don’t like copping it from my Nikon friends.

If you're a better photographer than your "friends," you won't hear sh*t...

That's because Nikon isn't just about photos, it's a lifestyle choice. ;)

You need better friends then...

I shoot around people with both brands constantly but beyond good-natured ribbing, we respect each other's creativity and vision.

Ultimately, they don't care what I use and I don't care what they use. It's all about the final images.

Yeah having a bit of fun teasing each other is part of the fun of photography. But when it comes down to it, it's the end result that counts.

Exactly! If I had people cracking on me hard core over what gear I had, I'd tell them all to pound sand and go find new shooting buddies.

I sure as hell wouldn't break my Piggy Bank and completely change systems for just an incremental, minor improvement.

If they're seriously insulting you because of your gear, there's something wrong with them.

Of course, all Canon users suck. But pobodies nerfect. :p
