    Excuse me... - it's off topic but be carefull with buying something for a far lower price than from everyone else.
    For example:

    www.justnikon.net and similar are fake and you can check them on :

    http://www.webutation.net/

    http://www.hostlogr.com/index
    http://whois.domaintools.com/

    just type name or IP adress


    Excuse me once again.

    While this was randomly bumped: We got the new Argos cat today through the door. I always check the camera section just to see what they're offering lately. They're still selling the D90 at €999! That's with th 18-105mm lens - with no sign of any D7000s in there.

    Taking advantage of the bump, did anyone here take the plunge on the 7000 ?

    I did. Picked it up from Sam McCauleys for about €1350 with the kit lens 2 days ago. It's a big step up from my D40. Savage piece of kit. Haven't had much time to get to grips with it yet, though.

    I was very tempted, played with one in Conns for a while, resisted though. I'm going to wait for the D700 replacement, picked up a 24-70 instead. :D

    I did. Got it for 1160 in Gunn's. Grabbed the 35mm 1.8 at the same time. I don't think I've ever seen a saleswoman so delighted in my life.

    I am in love with it so far. Look at that depth of field.

    I did, its 1350 in berminghams at the mo. it blows the D300 and even D700 out of the water imo.
    I've was a humble D80/D90 user with the occasional use of the D700, I was blown away by the ISO capability. ive shot at iso 6000 and higher and still had perfectly good images with no signs of grain in the image. Theres a quiet mode on it, and while thats very nice and all, its not actually that noisey to begin with so a bit of a wasted effort really.

    I always thought of the whole SLR video thing as a bit gimicky but i'm surprised to say i've fallen in love with it. shooting at 1080p HD with great clarity and very good night time performance is a winner for me, although you do pick up a lot of focusing noise from the lens with the inbuilt mic, you can use an external to avoid this.
    I dont know if its just me using the camera more since its new, but the battery doesn't seem to last as long as any of the above. I used to get weeks out of my en el3e batteries for the D80/D90 but i find im charging this a lot more often. Maybe its a conditioning thing with the battery or something, but i'll be needing a few spares just incase. Overall, Im very happy with it. :)

    I hope for it to be my next body, I was after a D300 but the D7000 looks sweeter, as it does everything and more that the D300/s can do. It's lighter and has that higher quality video too, if ever needed. When I can scrape enough to add to whatever I'll get for the D90, I'll 'ave one.
