Hi guys,

Standard dilemna...i've got a D300s, that i'm using with 16-85VR, Sigma 10-20 and 50-500 OS. I like shooting landscapes, night/low ISO shots, as well as birding.
I realised that i can buy a D7000 brand new for the price i can sell my D300s.

I'm tempted because of the better D7000 high-ISO capabilities, the small body, the higher resolution, the "u1" & "u2" practical buttons .

I loose : 1 fps (any difference ??), a ton of options that i'm not using, a stronger body, higher AF performance (??)

Any thoughts / comments ?

I think you should stay with your current set up, you know how it works, you have faster AF for the long Zoom and the little diff. in DR at base ISO it wont be relevant that often.

i like my D7k but i think D300s is overall a better camera. except for the size (very subjective).


I to think the way you do Joaquin. Come to think of it , the D300s has everything the D7000 has plus more . So at least at this point in time the D300s is it. It is a more mature design well proven in the hands of thousands of photography lovers everywhere. All the D7000 has above the D300s is the new metering system and autofocusing system which many say is below the one in the D300s plus a slightly better video system which is still rather primitive in nature.
