The D7100 really appears nice with the AF advancements and other changes/improvements over the D7000.  That said, I have a couple of quick Q's for those who have one and may have had a D7000 and or a D300/300s:

1)  Focus tracking: Have you found it comparable to the D300/300s in tracking ability?

2)  IQ: Do you find it (other than the sensor size) better than the D7000? If so, in what ways?  In Imaging Resource (IR) it "appears" (on my monitor) to be very similar in coloration, a "bit" sharper (in detail) but pretty much the same on high IQ noise (in other words, no real gain in High Iso capabilities). Do you find my impression/assessment based on IR accurate or not?

Have been hoping for a D300s replacement but just not sure that will ever materialize.... so assuming the AF system (AF tracking) equals or betters the D300s, I'd really consider a D7100.

Thanks much for your time to respond,

Its not a question if its better, just when will the replacament materialize. If your in a financial position of purchasing a D7100 and able to take a loss when tradeing in for the replacement than why wait.  Personally I have set my own date of June 1 of this year. By than if canon 7D2 is out nikon will have to respond. if no replacement than I will go for the D7100.
