I made that move about 3 months ago. I loved my D300. I had no issues with it. Honestly, the only difference I could see is the frame rate. I shoot sports too. The D300 is a little faster than the D800. (Disclaimer) I am not a Pro. The D800 has better Dynamic Range. I have printed large prints from both cameras. (16x20 and 16x24). There is more detail in the D800 prints. That is probably do to the 36 megapixels. There more features on the D800 than the D300. I am discovering them little by little. Overall you will NOT by disappointed with the D800!! :-O!

The D800 does look really nice. I have nothing agianst my D300, but as you mentioned the DR is trumped by both the D600 and D800. I was also interested in the video capabilities and the great low light abilities of the newer cameras.
