Great News! The BEST Digital DSLR Camera in the World is HERE!
The Nikon D800. WOW! Exceeded Expectations.
Whilst he awaits the replacement for the Nikon D700, Ken Rockwell seems to think that the Nikon D7000 is the camera that beats all.
However, if you take a look at the more practical and indepth reviews of Camera Labs, you'll discover that the D7000, though a great camera in his mind, has a few shortcomings; namely the rather sluggish autofocus and the burst rate that can't keep up for very long. He shows a sequence of shots trying to capture a speed-boat and just when you'd want an image to be in focus and the sequence to be at it's best the camera slows to a crawl.

Will the next D700+ the replacement for the current D700 be the ultimate, world-beating DSLR?
We've had recent Canon offerings, but as yet no news on Nikon's latest DSLRs.
I'll keep waiting and watching for the news of it's release. Meanwhile check out what Ken Rockwell and Camera Labs think of the D7000, then make up your own minds.

What Digital Camera Review
My Verdict: I really do like the D7000, I've had a trial in shop and liked the look, feel, and the familiar way that it handles.
It's a bit too expensive for what you get though. In my opinion the Canon 60d is a better buy for the money. But if you've already got Nikon Lenses then I'd go for the D7000.
