Good enough or not, I'll have one...

The question then for me is whether for birds in flight it will be better to continue to use my D300s with the 300 f2.8 VR and TC-14E or use the D7100 with the bare 300 f2.8 VR in 1.3x crop mode and 12 bit lossless compressed. My gut feel is that the D7100 cropped will win out due to faster autofocus, higher shutter speeds, higher DR, lower noise, better optics, close to equivalent shooting rate (shorter burst, quicker buffer clearing). If so great, if not I still have the D300s.
