A trip to Fotomat

It's been a long time since I last visit any Camera Shops.
So today, since I stopped by at Center Point to get something,
Might as well drop by at Fotomat to see how things are going.

Right before my eyes when I entered the shop,
The Nikon D7000 was there.
And I thought KK Stock would be Early 2011 for the D7000's in KK.
I'll be damned. I finally get to hold the successor of the D90.

Price Range for
The Body Only = RM3500 - RM3900
The Body with Kit Lens = RM4000 - Rm4900

My impression for the D7000 is that
~ It's MP is already 16.2 from 12.3
~ It now has a Magnesium Alloy Body
~ It has 1080p HD Movie Recording
~ It's DAMN light for a Magnesium Alloy camera, even lighter than my D300s.
~ It's still smaller than the D300s
~ 6 Frames per Second instead of 4.5 frames per second.
~ 100 ISO to 6400 ISO with 12,800 in expanded (D90 and D300s has 100 - 3200 with 6400 in expanded)
~ Expeed 2 Processor which my friend mentioned it has less Noise in Higher ISO Settings.

What I'm not really impressed is that
~ The Auto AF during HD recording / normal Recording isn't perfect
~ Dual Card Slots are nice... But 2 SD cards instead of one SD and one CF isn't nice for me.

Yeah, took a few photos of the Scene.

The Nikon D7000 really is Poisonous. But then, I'm now saving for a Monopod and a Gorilla Pod
