The D7100 has great IQ in low light shooting, has the f8 autofocus sensors which helps to focus in low light or with telephoto lenses and it shoot HD video.

A FX lens means longer and heavier and more expensive lenses. A 70-200mm on the D7100, as with your D300 functions much like a 105-300mm f2.8 zoom, and this is great for sports photography day or night.

FYI, the f/8-capable auto-focus sensors means that it will handle AF when the angle of view of the light rays coming from the lens is only f/8 (typically happens when using a teleconverter - like a 2x converter on an f/4 lens).  This is a separate issue from actual AF performance in low light.  I know they sound like the same thing, but are not.
