I used to own a D300 before it was stolen back in December. I primarily shoot sports and wanted the ISO the D7000 provides. The ISO performance is really good but the D7000 did not have the "pro" performance of the D300. When I would press the button to get a shot the D300 never failed. The D7000 did not fire on demand for me as fast as I would like. I would miss shots because it was just too slow. I'm not sure if its the computing power inside or what? Otherwise the D7000 is an outstanding camera and now serves as my backup/short lens body. Unless you are shooting sports I think the D7000 will be fine. To get the ISO performance and the "pro" body I bought a D700 to serve as my primary body. I hope this helps?? [/quoteHello there WTx,Yes, I have been facing this dilemma as what others tend to have also. My main problem is that I don't have a unit to test it with, camera shops here in the Philippines doesn't normally allow you to hold the camera since they're sealed. I don't with the rest tho'.I hear lots of good stuff on the D300 AF. And coming from the D40 (upgrading this first quarter of 2011), the D7000 is already a good upgrade. I am somewhat satisfied with the D90's ISO performance so I guess the D300/s isn't a problem. Maybe I could wait for the D300s replacement? Sadly, they would bump up the price again similar to what they're selling here with the D7000 which is the same price with the D300s.If so I could wait, I just have to give myself another set of glass. Eyeing for a Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 UWA.Thanks so much for your replies guys. The D300 AF made me really curious. BTW, which has a snappier AF (D300 or D700?) I think I can borrow from a from these units next month. Moreover, how would the D300 AF fare with the 7D? Canon's AF are fast, but somehow, the little dot of AF point's seem to confuse the system. Thanks again!
