As has been alluded to here, how photos are processed makes a difference.
Thanks for that link also; get a better 'picture' of things when having multiple sources to check. Interesting that the consensus at the link you provided coincides more with Rockwell's review of the camera than Pop Photo's, with the exception of the video capabilities. Ken says the D7000 video is slow at focusing.

It is a good camera, think it is an improvement over the d90. I would take allot of the reviews including rockwell with a open mind.

An improvement for sure over the D90, but enough to warrant upgrading from a D90? I'm not sure personally.

I'm waiting to see what else Nikon has coming out. I like my D90 a lot, it's been a good camera.

The D90 is a very good camera by any measure. The D7000 is better, but how much better it is for you, and whether you're willing to pay that much for that much of an improvement, are questions only you can answer.

I read the review and seems like it focused more on the shortcomings compared to the Canon 60D. I thought this camera would have impressed the evaluators to a larger extent...too bad since the D90 is still a great camera and this review does nothing significant to promote an upgrade to the D7000.
