It was predicted repeatedly on Nikonians that Nikon, in the wake of multiple disasters in Japan and in Thailand last year, would crank out the new pro bodies first in order to get production units into the hands of photographers worldwide well in advance of the Olympics in London. That's being done now with the D4 and the D800 surely. It makes sense to me that the next bodies out of the gate from Nikon's still-reduced manufacturing and production capacity would be another consumer body along with a successor to the D300s. So I think Nikon certainly did "pull their fingers out" as you put it, quite a long time ago. The speed with which Nikon is recovering from catastrophic disasters is, frankly, quite remarkable. I do not believe that any company, anywhere else in the world, could do any better.

I think we shouldn't forget the calibre of disasters which occured in Japan and Thailand last year. Recovery will continue for years, especially in Japan. 20,000 or so dead there and untold billions upon billions of yen/pounds/euro/dollars in damages and losses.

IMO, in the meantime, the D7000 is remarkable even if it doesn't have the pro bulk of a D300s or of some predictable D400. Technical image quality is outstanding too - limited only by the photographer's skill.
