Thought I might get the opinions from some D300 owners.
I am looking for a (used) backup DX body for use alongside my full frame Nikons and am curious if anyone who has had both D300 and D7000 could recommend one over the other. This is all about reach - I am going on safari in August and want to have DX body in my kit for use with a 200-400 rather than use a TC on a full frame body (at least I want to compare the two). Will also use for an upcoming airshow, where I would want a fast FPS rate. I am not at all interested in video and I am thinking this will be a transitional camera for me with somewhat restricted use (I have a D800E and a D700) until the D400 comes out..
Seems the price of a good used 300 is also a few hundred less than a used 7000...
Thanks for any insights.
Dennis
