While I wait for the D400, I can use a D7100...

I think the buffer limitation in the D7100 is a serious issue for RAW shooters. But I spend most of my time from April to June shooting warblers and songbirds with fill flash, and neither 6 fps nor the buffer is a limitation for warblers. And who - other than D800 shooters - couldn't use more resolution for warblers? And certainly anyone shooting a D300 like I am can use higher ISOs.

Another thing I want to experiment with is using my 300 f2.8 for birds in flight using the 1.3x crop mode (really micro 4/3rds?). Autofocus should be much faster than using the TC-14E, and if the viewfinder image will be a little small at least it will be bright! And given that DOF will be 2X that of 35mm, I will be able to shoot at f3.5.

And lastly, the obvious point: an extra half an hour at each end of the day. When it's time to pack up my D300 and D300s I can pull out the D7100. It is not the D400, but I look forward to shooting with it.
