Nikon's D7000 is official!

Specs and prices for Nikon's new D7000 are out, thanks to Engadget. Here are the key specs for video DSLR users:
  • ISO range 100-6,400 with 25,600 extended range
  • Dual SD memory card slots
  • 6fps still frame burst rate
  • 1080P at 24fps, 720P at 24 and 30fps
  • Continuous autofocus in video mode
  • Maximum recording time 20 minutes per clip (multiple clips can be recorded if there's sufficient memory)
  • Built-in mono microphone with jack for external stereo mic
And now, the price: In the U.S., the list price of the D7000 without lens will be $1,199.95, and $1,499.95 for a D7000 with a 18‐105mm f/3.5‐5.6G ED VR lens. Nikon will begin shipping the camera next month.

The D7000 is priced just above Canon's 60D and well below the 7D, and it has continuous video autofocus that neither the 60D nor 7D have. Once formal reviews start coming out, we'll know much more.
