I just don't get it...

See here: http://www.digitalcamerainfo.com/content/Nikon-D7000-Digital-Camera-First-Impressions-Review.htm

Edit: See posts below for an explanation.

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!

I don't think it's fair to judge future durability from one pre-production example.

By the way, the linked preview contains several factual errors. For example, saying that "AI lenses need a motor in the camera to focus them" whereas actually they need the good old Left Hand Mark I

They also seem to think that it's intended to replace the D5000!

I just don't get it why Nikon would have one with a dangling grip on display. Maybe they needed to access a hidden reset button or something.

That actually look like it may be a small access point. Notice that not only is the rubber sticking out but the whole plastic edge is sticking out. Also look at the picture that shows the bottom of the body the area in question is clearly different then the areas around it.

Another error, which we could not be so lucky to be true: "selling price of $1199 with 18-105vr kit lens"

I think it is the power connector cover.

See the diagram here:

Great find! Interesting location. I wonder if it impacts the environmental sealing of the grip area.

Does anyone else have a problem with the Power connector opening or getting in the way, whilst taking pictures?

I am new to DSLR's and noticed that the connector keeps coming-up whilst taking photo's. I first noticed it when a friend was taking photo's at a party, only having had the Camera a day.

I am a complete novice so I have put it doen to not knowing how to hold the camera correctly.

That's no good! I have the same issue on my D1x. It just won't stay closed. The connector cover is totally on a different part of the camera from the D7000 and is large. Nikon seems to always have issues like this with rubber parts for some reason.

I've got a D7000 with over 1000 images. The power connector flap does not open or get in the way. It's not an issue at all. If a friend has an issue with it, there is probably some other issue. Perhaps it was never closed properly. There is a small ridge around the rubber flaps which keeps them from easily opening.

The grip is a separate part - and is also a magnesium frame and weather sealed. It should hold up just fine under normal use.
