I agree. The D7000 is an order of magnitude better than the D90 - in every way: high ISO quality, resolution, AF speed/accuracy, ergonomics, duel memory cards, etc. etc.... I upgraded a year ago from the D90 to the D7000, and haven't even charged the battery in the D90 since. I still use my old D50, though, as it makes smaller image files of things I am not shooting as art. The D7000 can be had pretty cheaply, right now. It's a great bargain, no matter what Nikon does with it's "rumored" replacement.
