I've had the D300 for 5½ years, I guess. And I'm VERY happy with it.

Now I have also the D7100, and it is MUCH better, but

- size (I have big hands)

- material (Not like a brick, but quite ok) I have the Sigma 120-400 and it seems to be ok with it.

The buffer: If I shoot at cropped 1.3 and use the 12 bit NEF (compressed) I shoot at 7 fps and get 15 pics until it slows down. I've never used 14 bit RAW in D300 and it's grip and CH.

According to Nikon that compressed NEF is either visually equivalent or virtually equivalent to lossless compressed. I've noticed that the 15.5 MP NEF is still better than the 12 MP NEF of the D300.

Just my 2 c.
