Well across the pond Nikon USA seems to show it a bit different. The D90 was introduced September 2008 with a MSRP of $999.95. The D7000 is listed on Nikon USA web site as an EST. MSRP of $1199.95 or only about a 20% increase.Even B&H current price of the D90 with a $50 instant rebate of $899.95 would only mean about a 33% increase over their pre-order price of $1199.95 for the D7000.
But the build quality and feature set does put the D7000 more toward the Pro line then the D90 was. So they very well could co-exist. But personally if I were in the market for such a camera, I would spend the extra money to buy the D7000 over the D90. Other opinions will vary.
