Thanks for the link Stan. I have been thinking of getting a D7000 but was going to wait till DxO and Dpreview came out with a more thorough testing and reporting before making a hard decision. Having a D80, I was happily shooting along enjoying what it was doing for me. I contemplated moving up to a D90 for a while but other than improved ISO (which I did not need at the time) there really was not that much difference between the two for me to justify it. But I now find myself in a situation where I would want the higher ISO performance and the D7000 seems to be a significant step up from the D80 to further justify making the move. This posting has now made the decision a bit easier and has pushed me closer to making a decision of moving up. I still might wait for the more thorough reports being that I would want a body only, and it may be a bit till Nikon ships them to my local brick and mortar store.

As to the D300/D300s versus the D7000, well the gap has narrowed significantly. There are still a few features a Pro may wish that are not in the D7000. Two of the top of my head would be the separation of the shutter release priority from the focus mode and more user banks. As to image quality, well it may matter to some, but not so much for others. Not having used a D300 I guess I am not qualified to say really.
