The D400 will most likely be an incredible camera. It should bury the D7k. But if one does not want to wait, or spend $2000 when the D400 comes out, the D7k is a viable alternative.

Yes, totally different tools, and the lower weight of the D7000 can be a plus for some. My biggest gripe with Nikon right now is that I want a camera that excels at landscape/studio photography, and Nikon's D3x is just too expensive; that's why I now shoot with an A850 (my D300 is a back-up in case the A850 breaks) and I would still choose the A850 over the D7000 for my purposes -- YMMV.

As for viable Nikon alternatives, I would also argue that holding pat on the D300/D300s for now is also a viable alternative -- that's what Thom Hogan has suggested. Given that it takes both time and money to adjust to new cameras, changing your camera every time a new model comes out starts to resemble a fool's errand.
