It's out of stock due to the recent disasters in Asia. Nikon expects production to resume to normal levels around the end of March.

Discountinued? Highly doubtful. Nikon is currently launching two MAJOR cameras, and still recovering from both the Earthquake/Tsunami, and Thailand flooding that destroyed it's factories.

Supplies of many cameras will probably be short for the foreseeable future. That said, if you want a used D7000, there will be MANY for sale in the coming months.

Nikon says that the Thailand factory where the D7000 is produced should be up to full capacity by next month.

It's unlikely Nikon would discontinue the best DX camera made.

Demand has far exceeded supply because of popularity at the retail purchase end, combined with natural disasters in Thailand, where the D7000 is assembled.

Roberts Camera here in Indianapolis sent out an ad flyer last week that was developed by Nikon marketing, and it did not list the D7000 as even for sale.

See my post about six down from this one. It looks to me like the NikonUSA site is offering the D7000 for sale as "in stock". I'm not ready to buy, but thought this might be of interest to others who are looking for a supply?

Wow. That is what I paid for my brand new one in November.

There is NO WAY the D7000 is being discontinued. Right now, It's Nikon's flagship DX camera. As others have posted, it's in high demand, and production is still messed up due to the problems in Asia.

I advise you to put in an order at Samy's or B&H, and you'll get one of the first ones that hit our shores, whenever they do arrive. Get a new one. For the price difference, why buy refurb or used?

Alternatively, if you are in the US, just check the Nikon Store on NikonUSA every couple days (or even once a day) and you will get one at no markeup, with no tax in most places, and free shipping. It takes all of 30 seconds to check and they have been popping in and out of stock for a couple weeks. They get them before anyone else....

I stumbled upon a new D7000 in my local B&M Saturday at a price competitive with B&H, except for tax (of course). It now resides in my camera bag. I'll miss my D90, which I traded in.

If anyone is still interested, Amazon UK has 1 body left in stock as I write this, but you'll have to be quick!

I've been waiting the last few months for one to come into stock in my local Jessops, but yesterday I changed my mind and decided to order the D300s from Amazon; couldn't find any major benefits of the D7000 over the D300s, apart from the 'better' megapixels and HD video recording.

Either way, its a massive step up from my beloved D60!

I ordered one on Dec 30th and it took exactly two months to get here. Since this was a NAS thing so you can imagine the stress the wait inflicted. However, the reason I waited was the price, $1,132 net of shipping and tax. Kept the D90.

You've had a few days now... Not very long you will feel less that you miss the D90! I went from the D80 to the D7000; it was like night and day in the quality change! I've not missed my D80 since upgrading!

Indeed. I took it to the TN Aquarium last Saturday and after getting home and looking at the shots on my Mac I realized over half would not have been "keepers" with the D90, because the ISO was so high. I loved my D90, but the D7k is one helluva camera! Now, I need some fast lenses to help this baby soar.

I just received mine yesterday; it was back-ordered due to high demand. Those places online indicating they had it, didn't. Mine came out of B&H in NY who said up front the demand was higher than they could supply. Have dealt with B&H for a while and they've been totally honest about their electronics in terms of what is, and isn't in stock.

Not all being discontinued - just highly wanted by many!

I went and picked mine up the other day from the local camera store. They were able to apply a little discount I'm entitled to but he did say that he won't be getting any in for the next week. He called to try to order me a refurb but he said the outlet laughed at him. According to him though, production seems to be picking up.

I got one on Monday at Calumet. They didn't have it in the Cabridge store, but did have it at the NY warehouse, which they shipped to me. Just opened the box this morning. Battery is charged and ready to go, but holy learning curve! Coming from a D40. Luckily I ordered Mastering the D7k on Monday for my Kindle and have been studying

Hey everyone. Getting ready to buy my first Nikon, as well as my first DSLR. I am super excited and can not wait to start using it. It looks as though NikonUSA store has the D7000 in stock.

Can anyone suggest if the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR Lens that comes with it is a satisfactory lens to start with? Is the lens made of a lesser quality or just as good as any other nikon lens?

I don't mind the 18-105 lens -- you can do some nice shots (Have some northern lights using it in my gallery). For a basic lens, it's not bad; just doesn't have too much zoom. I got the 70-300mm lens with it, and together, they work really well!

I do recommend getting the Mastering the D7000 -- I find it better than the manual for taking advantage of everything!

thank you for the advice Wolphin.

I think I will go for the kit with the 18-105 lens. With the beautiful weather that is here this week in NEPA, I am very eager to start shooting.

I look forward to sharing some shots with the community soon.

The 18-105 is a consumer grade lens. Nikon offers the 18-105 in a D7000 bundle because the lens is capable of producing very sharp images.

Wild guesses aren't worth much, but all the factors seem to point to the D7000 not being replaced or discontinued soon. In the ordinary scheme of things, you'd think it would be replaced by a D7100 around August, in time for Photokina, as it will be two years old on September 15, and that jibes with the consumer camera refresh cycle. But you can throw the ordinary scheme of things out the window:

1. It's wildly popular and the technology isn't out of date, so freshening wouldn't seem to be a top priority.
2. A replacement for the D300s is more overdue, and I can't see Nikon vacating the $1800 price point to the Canon 7D (which itself should be upgraded to an 8D by September.) So the D7000 needs to stay in the product line as the flagship DX until at least a D300s replacement is announced.
3. Given that a D300s replacement (call it a D400), and a D3200 (given the shorter refresh cycle for entry-level cameras) might be imminent, it seems wildly optimistic to expect Nikon to replace virtually its entire product line in a single year (Tsunami delays notwithstanding.)
4. Tsunami delays.

Given all that, a WAG needn't be all that WA to say that the D7000 won't be discontinued soon. If the D800 meets my expectations, it may well replace my own D7000 in my personal arsenal, but the camera remains a wise choice for most DX photographers.

Usually when I post something like this, an announcement is made that contradicts everything I said.

Well...ahem...um...bought mine last week directly from Amazon (received it yesterday)for the recommended price listed by Nikon on the USA site. Just checked Amazon. Looks like they are out; only affiliate stores are listed and their prices are 1 to 2 hundred dollars over the Nikon recommended price.

I saw a flyer in our local paper today from Henry's, a large-ish chain in Canada. $1499 for a D7000 + 18-105mm and text that reads "Very Limited Quantities". In normal circumstances (e.g., no floods in Thailand, no tsunami in Japan) I think this combination would be around $1299 or somewhere thereabouts. Peter

I ordered mine through Nikon store on 3/12 by Ground shipping and receiving on 3/19 for 1499+Tax +shipping.

By the way, what is the recommendation of getting a extended service contract for this for 2 more years from Nikon? any advice ?

( I guess this doesnot cover accidental coverage as other ext.warranty company does) !!

Your particular circumstances may be unique, but in general I wouldn't buy a service contract...

What I would do, if you can, is get an insurance rider on your homeowner's/renter's insurance for loss/damage in actual use.
