Christmas in October?

So today, I went to my local Best Buy and picked up the new Nikon D7000. I had pre-ordered one from Amazon, but they hadn’t even begun to process my order yet. Rumor has it that they won’t be shipping until November. At least for the people who weren’t sitting by their computers when Amazon began taking pre-orders a few weeks ago. Unfortunately, the Best Buy D7000 only came in a kit with an 18-105mm lens. I didn’t want the lens, but I also didn’t want to wait till the end of November to start playing with this bad boy, so I went ahead and dropped the cash for it. Amazon pre-order… canceled. 

Now, I’m not going to write a review on this guy. There are enough reviews out there already, and there will be double the number in the next week, once everyone gets their hands on one. But I will tell you that I played around with it for an hour or so and it’s pretty slick. It’s smaller than my D300, but not by much. I’m just pumped to have 1080p video. 

So now I have a new toy to play with until my unicorn of a camera appears. Come on, Nikon. Give me a full-frame with 1080. In the meantime, anyone need an 18-105? Anyone? Bueller?
