Things are really heating up now.
To be honest I am now looking at the new Sony a55. Obviously there are so many factors with that camera (The new translucent mirror thing, how the sensor performs iso wise, etc.) but at a price of possibly nearly half of what the d7000 may be, and with possibly the same sensor (although obviously not with nikon's tweaking) it will be something I will have to actually look in to.
I've been very excited about the d90 replacement, and about being able to use my nikkor glass natively, but if this a55 performs surprisingly well I might have to look at just getting an adapter ring (which really won't be that different for me because most of my glass is pretty old, so it's all manual for me anyway)
I wish (obviously...) Nikon would hurry up and get us the deets on the d7000!
