Re: D300s vs D7100 - is it about spec or is it about handling?

Thanks Sam!  The Tamron has actually been awesome for me.  Far better than reviews you see.  But strangely it really seems to fall apart over 150 ft or so.  I've seen a few other people that have said the same.  I only posted the sparrow earlier in the thread to show ISO 1600 can be used for birding sometimes.  Also I'm surprised no one commented on the deer at 1/30th at 20 feet with no VR.  Anyways.  The red tailed hawk series is pretty cool if you want to see the death of the bunny.. http://www.flickr.com/photos/coastalconn/sets/72157632626570024/

I am super excited to try the 300 F4, If I can pick up a stop with the lens I will be shooting the D300 for quite awhile unless the D7100 is better in frame rate and buffer then spec say.  Unless Nikon does the crazy thing that they did with the D600 and offer the lens for free..  I found a video in youtube that shows the focus speed of the 300 F4 and it doesn't seem slow to me, especially with the limiter..

One more from the Tammy not re-sized just cropped to 1231x1254 which is about 100% I think.. In case you want exif or a full view...  http://www.flickr.com/photos/coastalconn/8491275148/sizes/o/in/photostream/
