Really really nice camera and a bargain at the price. In many ways its more sophisticated than some of the pro range cameras.
I used the D90 for 12 months before upgrading to this and I love it! I bought a third party battery grip and hand strap to go with it and its worked wonders in steadying my hand.
I can see this lasting me along time in terms of functionality and I trust Nikons in terms of build quality. I was torn between the pro D300 and the consumer D7000 and It made the most sense to buy this. Had I done more sport or wildlife burst shooting then maybe the D300 would have pipped it. But all in all including the price the D7000 came out top and I cant see anyone regretting the purchase. This certainly raises the bar for its competitors.
Coupled with some nice primes lenses I am getting beautiful images and the low light capability is awesome. I was dangling out of my window at the top of the tower block taking pictures of the Riots in salford at midnight,hand held with no discernible noise.
Ok, the video capability. While probably the best of the current offerings on SLR if your buying the camera to use as a functional video camera you will be disappointed. You can get some great shots in the studio manually focusing while making pretentious black and white art shorts edited from clips making use of your cool lenses, however the autofocus will not allow you to walk around and film your childs birthday party. Video on Slr's remains a cool extra rather than a reason to buy one.
Summary: If your looking for a high end consumer/low pro camera this is the one! Dont forget a good lens!
