Digital Camera You Need:

Nikon D400

I've read on forums and blog comments that some photographers are just waiting for the Nikon D300s replacement (D400?). We still don't know when exactly the D400 will be released, but it will probably will be announced in a few months from now, Do you plan to wait that long if you don't have a camera yet?
If you do have a camera right now (Nikon D300s, D80, D90) you have enough time to think about it. I have two friends who weren't really excited about the D7000 and would prefer getting a full frame Nikon camera.

Nikon D7000 vs Nikon D400 vs Nikon D800, Which To Choose

Regarding a FF Nikon, I think that there is a chance that pretty soon we will see the D700 replacement. The D800 will probably be a "killer" camera when it comes out. If you are an enthusiast photographer, you know the advantages of having a full frame DSLR camera.  If you enjoy shooting wide angle shots and low-light pictures, you will certainly enjoy shooting in a full frame Nikon DSLR camera. Even so, you need to take the price into consideration. FF DSLR cameras aren't cheap. Yes, they have their advantages for many photographers, but some photographers are better staying with a DX-format DSLR.  If you are a professional photographer you don't need my advice, and you already know what equipment you need. Furthermore, you are earning money as a photographer and that's different from amateur photographers who shoot pictures just for fun.

The decision whether to buy the Nikon D7000 is really just up to you. I really think that the Nikon D7000 is an amazing achievement and an important milestone for Nikon. The Nikon D90 is probably the most important DSLR that Nikon has ever created. For many photographers, staying with the D90 will probably be a good choice. Maybe the D400 will be a better upgrade when it comes out, who knows?
