OK, just got my D7K tonight, and it took forever for the battery to charge. I have only taken about 15 pictures so far, but I am blown away by this thing! OMG.
Now I better understand all the issues about focus accuracy and so on. The images this thing produces are so amazingly sharp and detailed that the slightest most minuscule misalignment is clearly visible!
I am flat out amazed at the pictures this thing produces. I took a portrait of my wife at 25,600 just to see if I could clean up the noise in Lightroom 3.3. Not a bad job Lightroom 3 did with the file. No, it's not fit for sale, but it is more than fit for the personal collection or the family web site. With some attention to detail, the image could be cleaned up so well that one would never guess that it was taken at such a high ISO.
In any case, add me to the long and growing list of people who are absolutely floored by this device. O M G!!

Why thank you, MEMcD! I intend to fully enjoy it.
I should be in bed as I have to go to work in the morning, but the thought just occurred to me that I feel no compulsion to turn up the sharpening of my in-camera processing at all. Maybe it's just that I'm coming from a D70s, so I am easily impressed , but these shots are plenty sharp as is -- certainly sharper than anything I have ever been able to get out of their predecessor.
For tonight, I am using my 35mm Nikon F1.8, but tomorrow I'll put my Tamron 17-50 F2.8 on it and see what the results look like in broad daylight. One thing for sure, night time is no longer off limits for fast shutter speed photography!
