The all-new Nikon D7000 ($1,499 18-105mm VR lens kit) has landed, muscles fully flexed. A gladiator in the hot mid-range digital SLR battle, the D7000 has the Canon EOS 60D set directly in its viewfinder, undoubtedly pleasing Nikon shooters with delight. A 16.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, new 39-point autofocus system, 100% viewfinder, 1080p 24fps (720p 30fps) HD video capture with continuous auto-focus, ISO 100-6400 extendable to 25600, dual SD card slots, 6 fps burst mode, and durable magnesium alloy partial-body round out this contender’s features. Ouch or drool. That’s what we imagine most Nikon D90 owners are saying… right, about, now.
