The Nikon D7000 is hot and you’re not. It has a fresh 16.3 megapixel sensor, 6 fps burst mode, 108op HD 24fps video recording in h.264 (or 720p at 30fps) with autofocus limited to 20 minutes, and a completely new 39 point AF system.
There’s more. ISO is 100-6400, however it can extrapolate up to fricking 25,600, and also has a 2,016 pixel 3D color matrix meter RGB sensor, which will make this DSLR the most accurate in white balance of all DSLRs out there, like its rival the new Canon 60D.
Now onto the price. Get ready: it’ll release in mid-October for $1199 for the body only, and $1299 with an 18-105mm VR lens. Let’s say this fits the “bang for your buck” phrase, except there’s a lot of bang, and a lot of buck.
