Hello:
I would love to have your opinion on this one, please.

I currently own a D300 and a D80. I am into general photography and love to shoot everything, BUT, what I REALLY want to do is shoot great pics of my son and daughter during gymnastic and karate competitions.

I am ordering the 70-200 f/2.8 VR and thinking about upgrading the D300 to the D700.

Reason being, from all the hype I've read about the D700, it's supposed to be MUCH better in low light that the D300. So with the D700 and the 70-200 F/2.8, I should be able to get shutter speeds of at least 1/500 at f/5.6 in these dark venues, even if I have to run the ISO up to 3200, which I just cant do with the D300.

Please comment on using the D700 in low light venues, and will it be worth the money to sell the D300 and buy the D700.

Thanks much for any comments,
Richard H.
