I was originally was going to get the Canon T2i but after doing some research here and learning more about DSLR, I opted to wait for Nikon D7000. My reason being is 39 point AF system, twin SD card slot, 6fps, magnesium body and just a better built camera for just a few more hundred dollars. Also, it will be a mid dslr rather a entry level. I've always admire the capabilities of the D90 so I'm sure this will even be better. I was so ready to pull the trigger and start shooting with my friends but the wait will be worth it. Looks like I have about a month to go.
