My main point was that they are all great cameras, and that I doubt the 15% increase in vertical lines makes many shots that would be lost on the D300.

Actually, I think it's wrong to say that it is only 15% more vertical resolution.

It's not a mistake, it's a fact.

The total number of pixels is about 33% more and that is clearly a visible difference.

As I said earlier, it is the difference between a 20" print and a 23" print; and that assumes you actually got everything the D300/D300s had to offer in the first place, and were then able to improve on that with the D7000. For narrow DOF focus is a bigger issue, and for wide DOF diffraction is an issue -- so the number of shots where the increased resolution from a D7000 will be noticeable compared to a D300/D300s are more infrequent than the MP numbers would suggest.
