I have held out for a long time waiting for an upgrade for the D300, D90, and D700 which I use now. We still use a D200 every week to for a hardcore field camera that really gets tested for durability. We are really in a bind here as Nikon hasn't released a camera which would further enable us to take for instance better video (and we do own 7 video cameras but I do not go into the field with them.)
Right now we could get a D7000 video but like Mike Gunter lean a little towards a D800 or a D400 which would actually be a better field rig for us. I would also hazard a comment that just possibly this topic is MOST central to Nikon Rumors. I KNOW I don't speak for you all. I also note that I do appreciate the differing points of view that show up and always conclude well each photographer has a somewhat different mission and certainly budget.
When I used to spend in the multi thousands for a lens which I would not and could not do today. I would most say that I really need to know what the D7000 users think as compared to say a D90. I also have exactly NO intention of getting a mirrorless camera. I would have kept my Hassleblad rangerfinder XPan if that camera worked well for me. That was a nice film camera, but accessories cost a fortune and the resultant pics were hard to use in slide sound shows and even to print.
