The new Nikon D7000 is in stock and started shipping on this Sunday 10/17/10.
Stock of the Nikon D7000 is varying moment to moment. Check often.
The Nikon D7000 is a step up from the D90 (a great all around camera in its own right) and appears to be another winner for Nikon users.
The 16.2mp sensor with good high ISO abilities looks very sweet.
