Nikon introduces D7000 digital SLR

Looks like things are gonna get pretty interesting this holiday 2010. Why? Cause Nikon’s just come up with their answer to the recently introduced Canon EOS 60D and Olympus E-5 digital SLR cameras (and also the much-awaited successor to their own D90) - meet the new Nikon D7000.

The Nikon D7000 is a fairly sizeable upgrade compared to the old D90, featuring better build quality, a higher resolution display, improved viewfinder, metering and autofocus system, faster burst speed, improved movie mode and a whole lot more!
