Advantages of Nikon D300s Series vs D7000 Series

Hello everyone,

I've read the various threads and reviews on this and I'm trying to summarise the main advantage of getting a D300s series camera versus a D7000 series camera.

Besides the different body/controls between the two cameras, am I right to summarise that the main advantages of the D300s series vs the D7000 series are:
1) Faster continuous shooting speed 7fps vs. 6fps
2) Bigger buffer 100 pics vs. 22 pics before the camera starts to slow down
3) Better autofocus 51 vs 39 focusing points

Is there anything else that is critical that I'm misiing here?

Hence, the main reason to get a D300s series over a D7000 series would be if I shoot a lot of sports/action/wildlife? If not, then there isn't any advantage to get a D300s series camera over the D7000?
