For what I heard so far, there will be no articulate lcd.

I understand the idea of the articulate screen. In my particular case, the very first time I went out with a video camera with articulate screen the LCD came back broken (hanging by the cables), it was my fault for not beign more careful but I feel uneasy when I have that kind of screen. Now, it has advantages, for taking shoots at different angles, in the middle of a crowd, etc.

That's good to know

I didn't know this. No, I don't need AF/AE lock. I just need AF on. So looks like it will work for me.

Thanks for the info

I was going to get it as a backup to my D300. But it looks like I won't because I need the AF ON button.

As with the D80/D90, I expect you'll be able to assign AF-ON to the AE-L/AF-L button. So unless you need both at the same time, it will have an AF-ON button for all practical purposes.

the strap anchors ...

... look al little too explicit for my taste. They could have put another control in place of the right anchor on top next to the LCD screen

Sorry to hear that, but no you probably cannot buy a video camera without an flip-out LCD. I doubt the photos are fake.

Just saw them - thanks!

Magnesium body and 39-pt AF confirmed!!!! Can't wait!!!! Damnit, I want to pre-order now. It's going to be so painful waiting for this to finally get to me...

This is a totally new body. Funny you should raise the 60D, when the first photo's of that came out I could tell by the fit and finish it was plastic. I roundly lampooned for daring to suggest such a thing. This one is metal.

I could be 101-point but, as far as I'm concerned, if there is still only one cross-type, it's no improvement over the 11-point AF (or the 51-point, for that matter).

Re: [RUMOR] Pictures of the D7000

I should have said "AF point selector switch" - and you are correct, that is what I intended. The D90 had the continuous, single and "M" just like all the rest. The AF point thing is a big deal, as is metering mode. A button and control dial is harder to use.

I come from a point of view where usability is really at least as important as IQ.

The D90 has an AF/MF switch at the mount, with a button that cycles through the AF servo modes (AF-S, AF-C, or AF-A). The D300 and D700 have a C/S/M at the mount which doubles as an AF/MF selector and AF servo mode selector.

From the photos so far, it seems the D7000 has the C/S/M selector switch.

The AF point thing is a big deal, as is metering mode. A button and control dial is harder to use.

I'm still not sure what you mean by "AF point thing". I expect you'll still be able to cycle through AF points with the directional pad. If you're referring to the AF area selector, well no, it seems the D7000 doesn't have one. But in all the time I've used the D200/D300/D700, I've never once needed to switch area modes on the fly.

As for the metering button, I find the rotary switch that controls metering mode on the D300 and D700 difficult to use. A button near the shutter release in combination with a dial rotation would be much easier to operate with an eye to the viewfinder.

I was almost killed and burned at the Canon forums for saying that the 60D was more like a downgrade from the 50D than an upgrade.

Looks like improved custom memories

The latest pics on NikonRumors.com show a top-deck view:

Looks like it have a couple of memory banks and best of all, they're selectable via the dial, rather than menu diving like on the D300.

I really hope they're not just memories for storing frequently used scene modes.

I also hope they've done a better implemention of memories by making it so that you have to explicitly save the settings to the memory bank, rather than the bank retaining the last used setting when using that bank. It's one of the main reasons I don't use the memory banks on my D300.

The magnesium alloy body is cool but one of the main reasons I was looking at a D90 is for its lighter weight compared to my D300. I hope they can keep the weight of the D7000 almost the same as the D90.

Yeah, the strange thing is the 60D is like an updated D90 and the D7000 is like an updated 50D. Looks like they both simultaneously decided the other was doing it right.

If the specs I'm reading about on NR are right, I decided to switch to Nikon. I will still keep 2 lenses from Canon, and maybe purchase a t2i as a backup but my main camera (40D) is gone, so I wanted a better 50D. It didn't happen, so it seems that Nikon picked up the ball that Canon dropped.

Re: [RUMOR] Pictures of the D7000 + 35mm 1.4 + SB-700 + 200mm 2.0 VRII

No the 60D is like a re-badged T2i and the D7000 is an entirely new camera. Canon blew it with the 60D but they are still doing fine with the T2i. Nikon will reign as the king for this round. Canon will probably dethrone them later with a 5D MKIII or a mirrorless solution though.

I am waiting to hear about video controls, video focusing, and metering non cpu lenses before final decision.... but it looks like Canon lost me, my 40d was already sold in anticipation of this and the 60d but 60d isn't looking to hot.

Look at the specs - very similar to the D90, apart from the flippy screen. Sure it uses 550D parts, but then the D90 and D5000 were pretty much the same camera under the hood.

and the D7000 is an entirely new camera.

Sure, as is the D3100. Nikon's on a roll.

Canon blew it with the 60D but they are still doing fine with the T2i. Nikon will reign as the king for this round.

Think you'll find the D5100 matches up much closer to the 550D, probably this D7000 sensor, 920k 2.7" screen in the current D5000 body.

Canon will probably dethrone them later with a 5D MKIII

5DIII won't make much difference to Nikon since it doesn't compete with it, just as Canon doesn't compete with the D700. The 1DsIV might make the D3X look a bit old.

Where Nikon looks a bit thin at the moment is D300s against the 7D, but this D7000's going to take some sales from the 7D, and I guess when the D400 (or D9000) comes along with the D4 the 7D will look a bit sorry for itself.

or a mirrorless solution though.

Nikon's supposed to have something interesting there.

cross-type points

I doubt they would have a new 39 points AF with only one cross-type. At least the central area will have more points of that type.

I come from a point of view where usability is really at least as important as IQ.

I'm 100% with you on that. I would still buy a D7000, but only if the sensor is very very good indeed - it would need to be to compensate for the lack of important external controls.
