Shutter lag is unrelated to blackout time.

They are related, part of the blackout time is the shutter lag. Since the D7000 shutter lag is 5 milliseconds slower, for it to have less blackout time it will have to have a mirror that moves that much faster and then some.

Mirror movement is but one component of shutter lag, not the sole determinate. Other factors are the cause of disparity. For example the startup time of the D300 is 100ms faster than the D7000. This is a circuitry issue. Button depression on digicams is, obviously, and electronic trigger. Perhaps the D300's quicker electronic process gains it some advantage here. There are lots of factors in play. But there is no doubt that the mirror actuation on the D7000 is quicker and smoother (more damped). But if you haven't tried yourself, your opinion will, as several have demonstrated, conform to your bias and assumption rather than actual observation. Religion vs empiricism.
