Hi Nikonians. I'm off on a trip to Egypt in 10 days and was thinking of adding to my fantastic D700 by buying a camcorder (Canon HFS21) but now thinking to buy D7000, mount 18-200 from my previous D200 and use D7000 as the single camera - avoiding weight of D700 and camcorder.

3 Queries -
1. Have any of you switched from D700 to D7000 and do you have comments about the stills picture quality etc.
2. Using D7000 in video compared with a dedicated camcorder - comments? I've seen the various Nikon promotional videos and it looks good but I'm wondering about the multistep process - LV, prefocus, etc and whether that can be activated fast. I'm interested in the video usability and quality from a real user's perspective.
3. Recommended settings - is there a link to a Nikonian's preferred deck of settings on the device?

Thanks in advance, Nikonians and Merry Christmas.
