Realistic thoughts on Release Dates
Oct 31, 2011

All, I am fully aware of the rumor mill and the impending announcements and what not... so please do not beat me up on that front

I have a real dilemma because in anticipation of the typical renewal cycle for me, I got rid of my D2Xs in hopes that a new DX pro camera would be out by now.

Given the lack of any real announcement, I find myself desiring the D7000 for lack of a high megapixel pro or semi-pro or the D300s but that also does not do much for me ...

Currently I am holding on to the D3 and will ikely replace it with either a D3s or anything new that comes on the FX front...

What would you propose if in my shoes? The D7000 is a great new camera with the latest tech right now (well, D5100 is technically the latest and greatest but it leaves out much more than the D7000 does) and since I am without a DX body...

I can get a used D300 for about the same price as a D7000 new... I think the D7000 has more to offer sensor-wise but still not as good buffer/performance-wise than the D300s.

Thanks for your insight and commentary.
