>this is NOT a replacement for the D90, I read that earlier
>today,

I read that too, but experience with Nikon tells me that this can mean any of the following:

A.) We intend to create a D90 replacement at a later time
B.) We intend to discontinue the D90 soon but not replace it
C.) We intend to keep making the D90 for a while. We aren't sure yet if we are going to come up with a replacement model or not, however.

(Note: If Nikon picks option C, this effectively makes the D7000 the D90 recplacement whether they intended it or not.)

There is also option D:

D.) The D7000 IS the D90 replacement, and the D90 will be discontinued sometime between now and a year from now, but Nikon simply wants remaining stock to be sold, so they are stretching the truth.

All I know for sure, is that the "what replaces what" isn't as clear on the consumer side as it is on the pro side. Heck, even on the pro side, it's still not clear how long the D700 lifecycle will last.

I think they are ambiguous because it gives them flexibility to adapt their lineup.

Stan's guess does sound like the most logical course of action.

Honestly, I think what is more important than whether the D7000 is or is not the actual D90 replacement, is how nikonians ends up integrating it into the current forum structure (as a separate forum like it is now, or combined with the D70/D80/D90 group).

An undeniable paradox: To think that there is any such thing as an absolute rule is at worst naïve, and at best, shortsighted. There is no such thing as an always-true, all context- or situation-salient, absolute rule that always holds true…including this one!
