But I understand that the ergonomics could be improved.

It's missing a button or two, but I think Nikon could add those in, and of course Canon doesn't have those buttons in the first place.

I'm with you in that I don't know that the construction of the body itself is that important, even if the D300 body is more aesthetically satisfying.

More's the point, the construction of the 7D is more or less the same as the D7000. So it doesn't make much sense for people to declare the D7100 (or whatever) unsatisfactory, then decamp to a Canon made the same way.

Also, I could live with 7 fps as I shoot my D300s backup body without a grip for BIF and find that adequate. If Nikon gives me 7 fps and 51 point autofocus in a D7000 body for $1200 I'm good.

I think a lot of people will be. You can buy something nice for that $500 saved.
