- After the D7000 gets announced next week, its predecessor (Nikon D90) will still be available in stores till the end of the year.
- It is interesting that the Nikon D7000 is considered to be a model between the D90 and the D300s. Almost all previous specs indicated a body superior to the D300s. Maybe we are missing something.
- FYI: A week ago Nimesh Thakkar of Nikon India mentioned in a Q&A session that there are no plans to replace the D90 and the D700:
"Q13:- Is there going to be a D700x or D700s? If yes, then when could we expect it? – Dr. Parth
Ans:- Dear Dr. Parth,
At present, there are no plans to replace Nikon D700.
Q14:-When D90 replacement is going to be launched? I’m planning to buy a D90. Is it the correct time to buy it or should I wait? Is there any chance of D90 price drop in another 1 month? – Deb
Ans:- Dear Deb,
At present, there are no plans to introduce any replacement camera and no price drop can be committed.
My suggestion is that technologies keep changing; you have to decide when to buy. I suggest, do not wait, Nikon D90 is a hot cake, go grab it."
