Would you swap the D300 for D7100?
Jun 30, 2013

I've been planning to upgrade from my D300 to D800E, but large cost difference keeps me from making this leap right away. So I'm thinking about buying a D7100 in the meantime.

I have noticed that some people, who shoot D800E or D800, use the D7100 as backup and are quite satisfied. The D7100 gets high praise anyway, some say its better than the D600 especially considering the price difference.

However, I have noted opinions that there is not much point in switching from D300 to D7100 as differences will be minor.

Has anyone swapped their D300 for the D7100?

What is your experience? Was this change worthwhile?
