The current flooding in Thailand has shut down Nikon's factory that makes most of their consumer-level DSLR bodies and lenses. The water has been at least 2 meters deep for the past few weeks, and apparently shows no signs of receding yet. See the before-and-after pictures in the following article:

Supplies of these cameras will surely become very tight when the current stock has been sold. I was thinking of buying a D7000 during the holiday season, but now I'm considering doing it this week, even though I'm not going to have much time to play with it for a while.

Haha, I suppose so... I did buy that camera without any problems and am still using it, although my iPhone has since taken over a lot of the basic photography. :oldwink:
