Did someone mention Ken Rockwell? That guys has no idea what he is talking about and his website looks like a 5th grader done it last century

That's probably what happened. ;)

Quote from Kenny Boi
"Is the D7000 superior to the D300s? I think so. Ignore the trivial stuff like counting AF points or FPS specifications; with the addition of the U1 and U2 modes on the top dial, as far as I'm concerned, the D7000 smokes the D300s for shooting utility. The D300s is just a D300, which is old 2007 technology.

Nikon will still sell the D300s, probably for more money than the D7000, because it can, but I think the D300s has just met its match.

From what I can see, the D7000 is now Nikon's top DX camera. It should outperform the old D300s, and weighs almost as little as the D90. Whoo hoo! "

Its the best it the world, smokes em all

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.

If you take that approach, you'll be waiting forever. Canon will continue releasing new cameras every year with new and better features. I guess I'd like to know that 1 little feature of the d7000 has the 7d does not that will make your photos that much better.

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.

Unfortunately, many people don't buy photo gear to take photos.:rolleyes:

If Canon hadn't released the 7D I would've moved to Nikon a while ago.
Apart from maybe the rebels and the 7D, Nikon's offering are at the moment much more desirable than what Canon is making.

And to people saying 'ooo why do you care so much about specs, all you're doing it taking photos!'
That's a ridiculous thing to say, if somebody is spending excessive amounts of hard earned cash on a camera then they are damn right to be making sure they're getting the best for their money.

Precisely. If I ever lay my hands on a 1200mm, I'd keep it in a hermetically sealed glass viewing case and designate an entire room for its display. The plaque will read: "This lens was once used by the CIA."

The D7000 is simply a tool along side any nikon, canon, sony etc ....dslr body. I like my Americano coffee black and strong, some like it with sugar and cream. Personal choice a is different from every individual. Ergonomics is equally as important that features of the camera.

For my slow moving subjects I prefer an oldie 5d classic vs. a 7d or my 1dmkIII. Goes to show new bells and whistles is wonderful but if you can achieve the IQ and desired captures with an oldie thats the bottom line. If your a dream at post processing and appreciate the photographers crutch of the low res of 300dpi (advantage for us) for prints you can use whatever you like as long as it has decent high ISO capabilities.

The D7000 looks to be a great Camera set to run at the 7D since the D300S doesn't match up so well - I wonder if it will replace the D300 model. Pricing seems very nice at $1199 cam and $1499 as a kit.

Magnisium allow and can beat the D300 in a lot of areas. the D300 AF system like still better. Have to wait and see how the new AF system works overall.

•16.2MP CMOS sensor
•1080p HD video recording with mic jack for external microphone
•ISO 100-6400 (plus H1 and H2 equivalent to ISO 12,800/25,600)
•39-point AF system with 3D tracking
•2016 pixel metering sensor
•Scene Recognition System (see 2016 pixel sensor, above) aids metering + focus accuracy
•Twin SD card slots
•3.0 inch 921k dot LCD screen
•New Live View/movie shooting switch
•Full-time AF in Live View/movie modes
•Up to 6fps continuous shooting
•Lockable shooting mode dial
•Built-in intervalometer
•Electronic virtual horizon
•Shutter tested to 150K actuations

If I had not bought Canon's 7D - the D7000 might have pulled me over. I like it.

If you go through the history about photography.
http://photohistory.je​ffcurto.com/ (external link)
a great posdcast I think there is 15 classes a year. (every year mostly the same just differant students)

Photography has always been about the gear as much is it is about about the photos.
Be educated, listen to a whole years history of photography.

Im sure all the great photogrphers wanted the latest gear just as painters craved new paints.

Actually, I do not agree with your last statement. I know a couple of professional photographers and they don;t care about the latest and greatest at all. Some of them still shoot film next to digital and their gear is far from being new. They use what they are comfortable with. Great photography is still made by the person behind the camera.
