Nikon D7000 Looks Great!

Nikon's new D7000 looks great, highlights for me, in order of importance to me are:

  • Compatible with AI and PC-E lenses (according to the manual)
  • 100% viewfinder
  • Slightly lighter and more compact than D300 which I have
  • Infra red remote (saves fiddling with 10-pin plug!)
  • Resolution (32 megapixel 3:1 panoramic with a shift lens)

Of course there are loads of other features, such as HD video, which I don't really need, but as a light weight camera to take to the mountains, it has a lot of appeal.

Shame though that yet again, batteries have changed, as has the additional grip. The latter seems over-priced as it doesn't offer any additional speed (as it did with the MB-D10 for the D300/700).
