With leaks all over the internet now, it looks like you'll need to change the name of this forum tomorrow.

New SB700 too!

Can't wait to see the real specs. It appears that the price will be higher which will up the cost about $300. Knowing the NAS bug which I always seem to get around this time of year I'll probably get the new D-7000.

I can't wait, really looking forward to continuous focus. Glad it isn't an articulating LCD.

But if the lack of an internal focusing motor turns out to be true that will be an enormous drawback.

And we'll see how all those extra MPs effect performance too. May not be such a great thing.

I had been starting to lean into the upgrade camp until I starting thinking more about the limitations. Since I will always be taking more stills than video, the improved video functionality isn't likely to be enough to push me over the edge. Maybe just wait for the EVIL whenever it comes out and get that instead....

If this is what you want (and, I can see the attraction), there's no reason to wait for the Nikon EVIL. You'll need to get new EVIL-compatible lenses anyway, so there's no advantage to Nikon vs. the systems that are already available.

Is your comment based on brand loyalty?

One advantage might be compatibility with the Nikon CLS wireless flash system

do we know for sure that Nikon's current library of lens won't be compatible with a potential EVIL?

No, we do not, but the F-mount size precludes the EVIL camera being significantly smaller than even say a D3000. Even though it is high-performing (theoretically), the EVIL camera is still supposed to be a compact camera. If it's as big as a D3000 and still takes the same size lenses, well, then there's no point to carrying one. I'm personally guessing a new line of DX lenses that are specific to the camera...

well, but eliminating the pentaprism will allow for a more compact size to the body. Look at the Sony NEX system where the actual camera body is small but the lenses look big. I believe that system is compatible with many of their lenses.

So what are all the rumors that seem so common? I get most of my info from Nikonians and so far in this thread I'm only reading about solid rumors. So what are they or do I just wait until tomorrow?

It seems that Nikon has listened to all our requests (almost) this time.
Nothing is missing!

http://www.dpreview.com/news/1009/10091515nikond7000.asp

Support for Non CPU lenses is there, AF adjust is there, new metering system, new AF, magnesium alloy body, 100% viewfinder coverage etc etc

Incredible specs for this camera. I don't understand the 1/320th flash sync speed. Does this indicate that the D7000 has no FP mode?

Otherwise, the UK price is about £20 under the D300s. If you buy the optional grip, it's more than £100 more expensive! Hopefully this will change as regular stock becomes available.

Screw the EVIL system - this thing seems the perfect second camera.
I cannot wait to read the D400 specs now - it's going to have to be insanely good.

Yes, if has FP, nothing seems to be left out from the D90, but a great deal has been added. This will kill D300s sales until it is replaced next year.

Yeah, I can't see why anyone would choose a 300s over this...

Bummed that it's yet another new battery type. Why can't I just use the batteries I already have for my D90?

OK, I want it, I want it, I want it! Too bad it's not out already. I leave Oct. 10 for 3 weeks in Bhutan. I guess the D90 will have to do. LOL.

From the pics at DPReview I can see one thing that's missing (that I would've liked): a dedicated AF-ON button.

As for the rest:
- very, very impressive
- it'll put huge pressure on the D300S, so next year's D400 must simply be amazing
- I'm very curious about IQ (dynamic range, noise levels, high ISO performance)

Ah well, just a little bit longer biding our time until the first serious reviews come in...
