The physical print book arrived Monday in New York harbor and is going through Customs now. By the end of this week, it will be in the distribution system. Preorders will be filled first. I expect deliveries to start before mid-month. Amazon.com is always very conservative in their projections.
The Kindle eBook version is already available on Amazon.com for US$9.95.
ePub, Mobi, and PDF eBook versions are already available at OReilly.com in one package for US$14.95.
The delay in the printed version was caused by the complexity of the camera. The book is 496 pages long. In order to keep from having to raise the price on the book, Rocky Nook chose to print it in China. This book is thick!
I'm sure you'll like the deep information in the book. Your D7000 camera is very complex, yet very powerful. Imagine needing 496 pages to describe it. It's a very mature and robust camera and ought to last you for many years of use.
Thanks for your patience!
