I have finally updated my D70, which is almost antique by digital camera standards, to get a D7000. I had considered the D300 and D700 but ruled them out for various reasons. Although the Dxxxx series is Nikon's consumer level DSLRs, the D7000 out specs the supposedly more advanced D300, and even the 700 in some respects ....such is progress ! Of course, the specs on paper are not everything to go by, but after a few days I am already very happy with my choice.
With 16Mp resolution (2nd only to the mega-$$ D3X in nikon's range),  twin card slots to store those high Mp images, very fast focussing, a wide ISO range with great lowlight capability, a nice solid and ergonomic feel to the body and good video capability I'm looking forward to taking lots of pics when I get to thailand next week !

just a snapshot of some flowers....at ISO6400 ! I could only dream of results like that with my old D70

There is a lot of customization possible, I'm still working my way through the menus to see what I prefer.
When you have found your preferences there are 2 user settings on the main mode dial where you can save many of the settings, ie U1 for sports and U2 for landscape, plus the usual M,A,S,P,auto modes and a multitude of preset "scenes'. It's not surprising the manual is over 300 pages !

Nice pictures! Consider putting together a user report? This is destined to be a very popular model, those with D90's will find only advantages in upgrading to a D7000, and those with D300's will only lose a few features/specs but will save several hundred dollars. A thoughtful user report with some examples would make a very nice feature. Please think about it.
