My dad recently bought a D7000 and a spare battery (upgrading from a D90). He's been having problems with it randomly locking up. There doesn't seem to be a pattern as it can happen after a lot of use or it could happen on his first shot after turning the camera on. He has a 2nd genuine Nikon battery and it happens with both of his batteries. He's using 8GB Sandisk Extreme HD Video 30MB/S SDHC cards with it. Pulling the battery fixes it for some random amount of time. When it happens, the display just freezes and no controls will respond - not even the power switch.

It's a USA model bought from Amazon, so he shouldn't have any problem getting service for it. The question is has anyone else run across this and found any solution? Any idea what Nikon's current turnaround time is on service?
