D7000 is that for real?

Some of you are missing the point. The D7000 offers many pro features in a very affordable package for consumers. That it compares well to the 7D is most remarkable. That its IQ is almost comparable to the D3 is most remarkable.

With the recent release of the 60D, Canon won't have a good response in this category for another year or two. That gives Nikon free reign in this segment in the foreseeable future, and it will hurt Canon's bottom line (in photography).

Say what? Aside from Chase Jarvis' slightly biased photos and video floating around, and even he states his opinion is not a review, where are you getting that the IQ of the D7k is almost comparable to the D3?

Or did you mean it in a relative sense, because any digital camera is "comparable" to one another... (it's either comparatively good, or comparatively bad).

Having more features with a cheaper price tag is GOOD for everyone. One can hope/expect the trend to continue and ultimately, IF/WHEN *I* need to upgrade years from now, I will gladly pay less to have more.

A camera is a tool. If your hobby is collecting the best camera body you can afford, and not photography, and if the D7k really tickles your fancy, then get the D7k. Simple as that. Because ultimately, even if you switch and get the D7k, someone will still tell you that you should have gotten the D3s.

The funny thing is that Canon developed the 60D with compromise to compete with the D90. And now it looks like Noink scrapped the lateral successor to the D90 and went up a couple of steps with the D7000.
Unless they are gonna come out with the D90 successor later on.

Because ninjas cannot be trusted.

Manufacturer competition is good for the consumer. I welcome new/better cameras at more affordable pricing. (I hope they do something similar for FF.) :lol:

Absolutely, I hope micro 4:3 cameras eat into canons rebel sales so they are forced to retaliate with their own mirrorless model.

As much as I like the way "mirrorless" sounds (less moving parts to break)... I'm not convinced with EVF performance. I'm sure with time, it'll keep getting better, but at least for *my* requirements, it's still at least a decade away. :lol:

I just don’t want to buy a 7D and Canon release something like the D7000 soon.

Then forget photography, or any technical pursuit. There will always be something better coming, sooner or later. If you can't bear to live though Canon's product cycle, then resign yourself to switching brands every year or so.

Ya well I'm certainly not looking to buy one right now either, but I'd definatley like the option from Canon and if they start now they can get a head start on Nikon. :lol:

I went to DPReview and did the side by side comparison. 7D and D7000.

Which one has the edge? If one does, then it's not a "blow away" edge that I can see. Well maybe the Nikon has the edge because it has a longer name. I wonder if that will offset the cost of lenses?

this post made my day


Canon > Nikon

Exactly. Nobody should get defensive about new products getting released. When manufacturers compete, we all win!

Unless you shoot Leica, but then you also probably wear old "members only" jackets from the 80's too, so there's really no helping you people anyway. :D

Seriously funny. Yep, now Canon will have to resuscitate the original semi-pro 20D/30D/40D/50D line to compete with the D7000 model level. And with all this category rejiggering, we're going to end up having to use scientific notation for cameras' names because we've run out of space for all the digits. D7X10^3 anyone?

Okay I think you are making this up. I have not seen any comparison picture between the two camera. How was it that the D7000 IQ is comparable?

Wait a minute! The Nikonians forum just caused me to have a seizure and I can't read anything without getting a headache. I don't think I want one anymore.
