Yes I'm really looking forward to the D7000! One of the things I am looking forward to is restoring my 70-200 to usage on a DX body plus with TCs. I have the VR 1 version, it sounds like you do too and it is working well with the TC20E iii?
And yes looking forward to video - both wildlife and my daughters theatre and dance.
I'm trying not to get too excited, next up should be a series of reviews and preview and hopefully some good tests with comparisons! Then I might get excited
