The D7000 provides increased performance and capability over the D90. I am sure it will atract many D70/D80/D90 owners into upgrading while also offering added performance even over the D300 series bodies. This also gives us a glimpse into the what the D300 replacement has in store when it is announced in the (near?) future! Nikons next generation bodies are going to be the cats meow! Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
