K7 vs D300S (Flamesuit at the ready)

The trials and tribulations of finding a decent DSLR with fast and accurate AF + tracking.

Finances dictate that a FF DSLR is out of the equation. Investing in good glass with a DX sensored DSLR - get the 1.5x crop and the sweet spot in the glass.

My last shoot with the K7 has started to reveal the shortcomings of the K7 in difficult situations. I need an AF module that will give me consistency. I missed a key shot that the Editor wanted due, I believe, to the AF. (OUCH!)

So for those that have or used the D300s and K7, what are your impressions? Based on the reviews I have read (lots!) the IQ and functionality is about on par, but the AF is the main difference.
