Nikon announced their successor to the D90, the Nikon D7000 (what is up with these model numbers?). I’ve thought about potentially purchasing a new camera at some point in not too distant future. My Nikon D300 is still serving me well though and ultimately, I’d like to upgrade to a full frame camera (hello, D700 successor?).
That said, this still sounds like a great camera that’s reasonably priced for the feature set. It’ll probably have great lowlight capabilities and make a fantastic backup body.
