Like Peter, I have a 135mm f/2 DC but have never tried it for wildlife. The lens is reasonably fast to focus, but not really comparable in speed to the 70-200mm VR II.

If your idea is to use the 135mm on your D300s as a way of gaining a stop over the D700 with 70-200mm - while keeping the same "reach", then I'm not sure it will get you there. I found the D700 to be around a stop better than the D300 in low light, so you may still be in the same boat noise-wise.
