Thank you very much for your input. I really appreciate it.

Just one more question before I let you go, do you think I should go for a old semi-pro such as a D300s or a new entry level camera, such as a D3200?

The reason why I'm asking this because according to DxO D3200 has a much higher overall score than D300s. D3200 also cost a lot less, has a newer sensor and processes than D300s. I know D300s has more focus points, faster bust rate and feel better in hand, but do you think it is worth the money, especially when it is about to be replaced?

Thank you~

I chose the D300s over a similarly priced D7000 (and its sweet sensor) in Jan 2011 and have been very satisfied with my choice. Formerly I used a D70 and there's a nice big leap going to the D300s. One thing hasn't changed, though: I still get very satisfactory images -- just as I used to get with the D70. Maybe it's a bit easier now.

Now it's Sept 2012 and your choice.
