Nikon D7000 Echoes

Nikon Rumors says Nikon will release the highly anticipated D90 replacement, the D7000, this October.  According to the website, the D7000 will sport a 16.2MP CMOS sensor on a weatherproof, magnesium alloy body.  In addition to the scene mode dial, which is popular with some amateurs, the D7000 looks like it will have some 'pro' features, like 100% viewfinder accuracy and dual SD memory card slots.  It will be able to record up to 20 minutes of HD video using Autofocus.  It will have 39 AF points and a new EXPEED 2 image processor.  Read more here.

If all this is true, it will be a significant upgrade over the current D90, and have certain advantages over the current D300s.  The camera weight and battery specifications weren't released, but this looks very exciting and will be the front-runner as a replacement for my aging D300.
