Not exactly a piece of our typical “great deals” news but we thought it might be interesting to feature it. Yes the Nikon D7000 is the replacement for the very popular D90 and if you are thinking of getting into SLR photography this should excite you a bit. Prices start at US$1,200(body only) and US$1500(with 18-105mm kit lens) and saying the specs of the D7000 has good specs seems like an understatement with the community comparing it close to the D300s if not better.
For SGD 2,000ish(with kit), initial impressions are already quoting this camera to be a winner targeted at beginners and even pros and enthusiasts. For a more detail technical discussions on this gem we compiled some previews and reviews for your reading:
