D300 vs D300s performance question
Oct 25, 2012

A question to those who have used both cameras,  my D300s has just rolled 190,000 shots and is starting to act up,  I shoot wildlife and buffer and fps is very important, was hoping the D400 was gonna be here in time but looking like I will need something in the mean time if not just as a backup, and given the high shutter count on my 300s the new body will probably be kept as a backup.  I was looking at a used D300 with only 6000 shots for $495, the question is how much a performance downgrade is the 300 vs the 300s in both buffer and af and any noticeable difference in write speed to clear the buffer. If the performance hit is significant i may just send my 300s to nikon, but it has had a rough life so a gently used replacement might still be money better spent.  Any thoughts would be appreciated and nothing in the current line really fits the bill, i want a D400.
