Finally found a D7000 at Stewart's photo shop right here in Anchorage,AK. 531 W. 4th Ave. Mine is body only for $1199. He has three more. (907) 272-8581. He says Nikon distributes them by area and he is the only dealer in the area aside from Best Buy, who also has them here in Anchorage, but only the kit. He will ship to anywhere. Get them quick, he said he was sure they would be gone by this week-end. he just received these on Mon., and we checked, and yes the latest firmware (1.01) is installed.
I'm also having him get me an 85mm 1.4G. I haven't been able to find one anywhere. He thinks he can get one, he already has one on his camera and said he had a bunch of them before Christmas, but none at the moment.
