My uncle has been with Nikon for many years, and I have been going to him as a source for my first DSLR purchase. When the D7000 was announced, he had an immediate reservation (that I do not agree with based on my research). he uses a d90 as his first digital slr, but has several older film slr cameras. however he believes that the d7000 was placed in the thousand series for a reason, being that its not a good camera for some reason and that a d90s will be released (as that is the naming system in the past for updates.
Is there anyone who agrees with this? I believe that there will not be any d90s, and that this naming system is due to how nikon is changing the classes of its cameras. D#### being entry and enthusiast, D### being semi pro and D# being the pro models.
