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 ?

if you shoot inside a studio with lots of strobe flash, d7000 should be ok, but if you shoot birds, d300s is a better choice, there are many situraation like little bird with back light, will drive your d7000 crazy, and there will be place like dim light, you will hate yourself if every photo came from soft. I tried a d7000from a friend, the d7000's AF system is no where close to any d300, specially the tracking AF.

if you have too much $$$, I will suggest you go for d700 or buy a lens
