We don't know yet. But from past experience everything moves on - the "consumer" D90 considerably exceeded the sensor performance of the "pro" D1, even though the D90 had a much denser sensor and was cheaper

>The photosites on the D7000 have to be tiny (compared to the

>(again) that is 3 three times SMALLER.

It's 2.3 times smaller in area, and while what you say is true, the D7000 sensor is a couple of generations newer than the one in the D300, and the firmware has also been improved. It comes back to the point about making sure we are comparing like with like.

To reiterate - FX is not automatically better - it depends on the technology used and the pixel density.
