I wouldn't count on the D7000 being available at "a much lower price" by Christmas of this year. It will still be brand new and much sought after. I think they will sell a lot of these bodies and the demand will be high for several months. I wouldn't expect any price reductions for at least 6 months or so. How long did it take for the D90 to show up at a discount?
