what a whining about "this can't be the new flagship", this isn't a replacement of the D300s...no, it isn't. But yes, it's the new flagship....for this moment!I also am waiting for a D400 to come out...though I only used the D80 and D7000 before. The body of the D300(s)...yes, it's really great...and I doubted a very long time a few years ago between the D300s and the D7000.
Guys....the new 'flagship' is for another kind of customers.....and it's totally normal Nikon calls it the new flagship...because it is for this moment....until the successor of the D300s will appear...(I hope) But I think, the D7100 will be a great piece too. I will wait until the end of year...If the successor of the D300s will appear, I will go for that, otherwise...I deffinately get me the D7100
Sdaniella: does gps work well with a metal body at all, or is primarily plastic body a must?
you can't have good integrated gps and a mostly metal body y'know... you have to give up one to have the other (given most balk at having a plastic dSLR...)
Even on my D7000 it works well...I have the M3-MTK-S5 from Dawntech....It works great
