Used D300s or D7100 now, or wait 1 month for new DX model
4 months ago

Sorry finger trouble on tablet posted before complete.

Having enjoyed return to SLR with D5200 for past 6 months now keen to buy a second body that has all the primary controls ergonomically organised as physical buttons instead of menus. Also with AF screw to drive my old film Nikkor lenses.  Do I buy an inexpensive used D300s now as a holding exercise, or a new D7100 which at least will do for next 5/6 years, or wait one month to see if anything new announced in new year.   If nikon release anything like a 7k series with D300 control layout I would wait and pay extra for it.
