    Appropriate award for the D7000.

  • broxibear

    Yeah?, I’m not really convinced by TIPA and the way they award products.
    In their qualification terms it states “In order to be eligible for a TIPA Award, products should be introduced in most world markets between April 1st of the preceding year and March 31st of the voting year.” I’m pretty sure the Best Professional Lens winner Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM was released in January 2010 which means it should have been in last years competition not this year ?
    And why is the Sigma APO 70-200mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM in the Best Expert catogory instead of Best Professional Lens ?
    As I said…I’m not convinced.

    woohoo… nikon always owns and rules the imaging game

  • photoartbymark

    nice showing

  • gnohz

    I realised D700 is not on the list 😮

  • inginerul

    how can the D700 be on the list if it has been released 3 years ago ? this is TIPA 2011.

    • inginerul

      my error, the D700 has been put in the shadow of the D3x in TIPA2009, which got the price for the best professional.

  • James E. Donahue

    Getting these awards are great..But they need to get the D7000 in the stores so we can buy them.

  • Venura Herath

    Great ,
    Still waiting for D800. Its gonna be ground breaking!~

  • S

    Good comment about D7000 Body Only not being available. I know all that Japan has being through is difficult but I am referring to a “before earthquake condition”. I suggest one question to think about:
    1.- What is the probability of a D7000 being purchased by a first time consumer against someone with some glass already on his/her position? i.e. Why D7000 + 18-105 Dx lens has been long ago available and D7000 Body only has being out of stock for so long. I guess that is a simpton of a miscalculation (or something else). That is now a disadvantage if we consider the much needed sells. Certainly there is a good learning opportunity either way.

    • Tony

      I don’t think there is any miscalculation. It’s just that the guy want to sell you some lenses too(the 18-200mm kit also available).

    • Mourie

      i bought mine 23 days ago, in the shop and they are still available (body only)
      and the same day i have asked for the 35mm 1.8, they took the box and handled it to me, no troubles at all, i am really wondering whats going on with the American market (and internet shops availability)

      • Tony

        Did you pay $199 for the lens?

        • Mourie

          in europe we pay all in euro :p 999 eu the camera body
          199 eu the lens
          but i think is the minimum (or ir was) 20+ days ago you could find

      Hi S,
      Where are you in the world ?…I’ve just had a quick look for D7000 bodies in the UK and it’s pretty much in stock across the board ?
      I remember reading on Thom Hogan’s blog that Nikon won’t move stock from one distribution area to another, so If they had excess stock in Europe they won’t transfer that stock to say the U.S. because of the various distribution agreements they have.
      Here in the UK the D7000 is one of the few pieces of Nikon equipment that’s gone down in price…it was a pre order price of £1000 and now it’s £900.

      • S

        I mainly buy from web sites in US. Where I live there is no chance for me to go to a shop and have a decent price ($1,790.00 USD for D7000 body only).

        • broxibear

          Hi S,
          B&H and Adorama have got them in stock for $1200…although I think they’re closed for a week, some superstitious nonsense called religion lol ?

          • Tony

            It has been back ordered for quite sometime, I believe.

            But I only check it 5 days a week though…… I could be wrong.

            • broxibear

              Hi Tony,
              A lot of retailers are pretty sneaky and show stock on their websites when they don’t really have any ?
              Lets hope Nikon’s Thailand plant isn’t waiting for Sony sensors because they aint getting any for a while.

            • Tony

              Sneaky or not I can’t say, but many retailers (web) do that. They will take you order but not charge your credit card until they have the actual product on hand. And well for me buying online would save me about $200 (for tax).

              I think Adorama will make sure that they have the camera the same time when everybody else has it though, so no problem about that. The big question would be that whether they are going to honor the $1199 price tag if the actual stock came in higher. Well, they might have a contract with Nikon or something like it.

              Anyway, I feel bad for Nikon that they have to stop the production line not so long after releasing D7000. They are losing money big time.

    I’m in the UK and bought a D7000 body about three weeks ago for £789… loving it!
