Speed - well, they are both 8FPS cameras, no win there.

Well this isn't true though, 7D is 8FPS, D300 is 6FPS, you can get to 8FPS if you add the battery pack though, and that's 12 bit raw rather than 14 bit. The 7D does win here.

D300s is 7FPS, so yes you need the battery pack for the extra FPS. Since the 7D only has a pixel scale DR of 11.12 stops it only needs 12 bits to completely encode its output. 14 bits is no advantage at all for it. The D300 manages 11.92, so it will be a little restricted by the 12 bit, but will give more than the 7D. I'm still going to say evens, because man people will use the grip, and the 7D's additional 2 bits of noise are valueless. No Canon camera needs more than a 12 bit raw file.

I didn't honestly know about the construction details though about the plastic chassis, saw your posts in another thread about that. Did you deconstruct those cameras?

Didn't have to, there are plenty of teardowns and from them it is obvious that the chassis is plastic.
