Re: Another D300 vs D7000 post !

I changed to Nikon after fighting with Canon for 18 months trying to get the 1D mk3 sorted, They were just arrogant and bull headed about it until i proved to them that it was a pile of crap, I said that if they could not fix the problem i would go to Nikon-They simply said enjoy your Nikon and that was that

I used the D7000 in Japan along with my D3s just before the tsunami, The sea was frozen so solid that even the ice breaker i was on could not leave the harbour, It was around -18 and with heavy sleet, Everything was soaking yet the D7000 and D3s worked perfectly, A lot of people here read alot of crap comments without any experience themselves and soon 1 persons comments become 100 peoples and then its gospel, The D300 was a really great camera and i loved it, The D7000 is a great camera and to me i want the very best IQ and the D7000 blows the D300 away, I never shot the D300 over ISO 400 as grain become evident-i supply agencies so NR is not possible, I shoot the D7000 at ISO 800 and that makes a big difference to me-of course i can use the D3s but the cropped sensor is very useful for a nature photographer, Will i get a D400 and chop in the D7000-hell yea-The D7000 is better than the D300 for me but i like the full size body and controls, I didnt say that the D7000 is perfect just better than the D300 for me
