Very impressive images. I'm somewhat confused though by what appear to be radical differences in the exif data between the two shots. If the D300 shot really was a 1.7 second exposure and the D7000 was 1/1000, I'm not sure your D300 was given a fair chance to compete for detail

I would expect to see a similar difference if they were both taken with the D7000. Even with VR a shot at 1.7 seconds should be softer and show less detail than one at 1/1000.

I'd love to see a comparison like this with identical exposure settings on both cameras.
