- The pixel density between the D800 and the D300 is pretty close, so you don't lose the 'reach' of the DX sensor.

- The D800's AF is a bit better than the D300's (which was pretty darn good).

- The D800's high ISO capabilities are 3 -4 stops better than the D300. That alone might be worth the price of admission.

- The video is better on the D800 (if that means anything to you).

- The D300 has a higher frame rate. Not sure how important that is to you.

- The 800 has a brighter viewfinder.

- The D300 had a much more reasonable grip - cheaper, stronger, faster and compatible with the D700.

The framerate is not that important, as long as the AF is fast I imagine I do not have to have tons of shots as long as the action shots I do get are in focus.
