Well, the release date has come and gone and still no book. Barnes and Nobel are saying maybe the 15th of August. Amazon isn't saying anything. Looks like the D7000 will become the D7100 before the book is out. You would think that 9 months would be long enough to get a how to book on the market. Everybody else has had their books out for many weeks. Time to switch to the other folks. So long Rocky Nook.
