diko nga pala nachange sir nabenta ko na rin pala yung d3100 ko just to buy D90 last november and now planing to buy 2nd body just for back up and for a change since new body siya.....sir may tanung ako 37 F ponits against 51 ba sa D300s? would this be a much diference in terms of sharpness and good images sa macapture niya lets say a wedding event
If that is your concern, the d7k is for you. The d300s is good for Birds in Flight, sports, etc that needs accurate tracking and high burst speed.However the d7k is also capable of doing that but not at the level of this procam bodies like the d300s.You won't miss the 51 points of d300s if you are just doing wedding photography!!
You should have skipped the d90, retained your d3100 and then went directly to the d7k. However no use in crying  over spilled milk!!!If you can wait for the d300s replacement please do. If not just skipped the d300s and grab the d7k when the price will go down between 45-50k. Yes, the d7k went up so high in its prices now watch it fall that fast!!!It is almost happening now!!!

mas madaling maka adjust from d90 to d7000 kesa sa d90 to d300s. halos magkaparehas lang ng buttons.
and for me the big factor is the monster ISO capability ngd7k. tsaka grabe ang focusing speed ng d7k.

i hope it helps sa decision mo. or should i say ibi BI kita to get d7k instead of d300s.

check this ito yung comparison ng d7000/d90/d300s

D300s. sure it might be last gen body but what you get is superior weather sealing, full magnesium alloy body (D7k only has certain parts), 51 AF points, and a slightly faster focus/AF acquisition speed. i have shot a lot of weddings for almost 2 years na and based on my experience mas lamang talaga ang semipro body like D300/s; in events like that, your body gets banged around a lot (magnesium body helps in this regard), and a lot of moments happen quickly - AF speed and acquisition is important and this is where Nikon's focusing really shines.

video? i don't need it - we have our videographers for that, besides 5D/7D still trumps anything Nikon can offer video-wise so i don't bother in this regard.

high-ISO? despite the advances of the D7000 nothing still beats FX (d700/D3/s) so i wouldn't consider this a deal-breaker, besides in my experience shooting events (weddings/concerts) i rarely go 1600 ISO up, if i need more light i use my strobes to compensate for that.

D300s also uses the faster CF memory card format which is useful if you tend to use burst shots a lot, mas malaki buffer nya and using faster CF cards you can really utilize the faster FPS for taking those decisive moments.

but take heed my answer is based on my practical experience in shooting a lot of weddings and events, so it still depends on what do you want to do, or concentrate in - both cams are good and D7000 is the newer generation technology, but the D300s is priced that way & still in the market for a reason also; halos magkapareha na sila sa pricing nang D7000 and performance-wise wala ka nang hahanapin pa.

D7000 for sure.

The D300s, though a VERY good camera, is getting a little long in the tooth. It's... what? almost 3 years old? In digital tech terms, that makes it a pretty old model. Rumor has it that it's replacement is coming out very soon (just rumor) -- but if true (likely), then in a few months' time, it is effectively obsoleted, driving price down. For instance, I recently got a D200 for less than P15k (a camera in 2005/6 was worth nearly 100k).

The D7000 is a newer model. Yes, it is a "pro-sumer" model, while the D300s was Nikon's top-of-the-line DX model. The D300s is better built, but it's just older technology. The D7000 has better high ISO handling, higher megapixel, etc -- everything a newer model would have.

Finally, the D300s, for it's age, still sells HIGHER than the the D7000 when both are brand new. I personally would only get the D300s if it were less than P40k. I don't quite understand why second hand buyers still get it at a price higher than that especially with the imminent announcement of the D300s' replacement. I understand that SELLERS want the best price, so they can price it however they want.

This is not to say the D300s is a bad camera; quite the opposite -- it's a fantastic camera. It was just made less fantastic, and becomes, over time, even less fantastic, as technology improves the more recent offerings.

this is what i want to hear experience of  using D300s kasi compared to D7k in price konti lang nilamang eh and siguro considered na rin na top of the line model ng DX but who knows baka bumaba pa konti ang D300s

may point ka rin sir kasi D300s is older model compared to D7k but siguro the most obvious question is in terms of sharpness and focusing san kaya ang mas lamang sa dalawa sa mga nakasubuk lang ng mga model na ito...

This may not apply to most but in my case trying to focus on a jet plane being launched from a catapult from 0 to 180 mph in 2 seconds, you'll need a faster shutter camera, faster tracking system and auto focusing lens.  The pro model excels very well in this category which is why I prefer the semi or pro model.  If you are just taking still pictures then the D7000 is more than capable.  So it's up to the buyer kung ano talaga ang magagamit nila sa features ng camera and lens combo.  Both are great system kahit na mas older model ang D300s. Parehong panalo laluna kapag na upgrade ang D300s with a newer model.  :o

sharpness and focusing? mahirap i judge yan because these two elements are basically a synergy of the camera sensor, AF motor and lens used, as well as lighting conditions. i think given a common pro-level lens like my trusty 70-200 VR on both cameras and adequate (read: not low light) the D300s will give a (SLIGHTLY) faster AF acquisition - but take this with a grain of salt as this is based on personal experience, since the D300 series really excel in initial AF acquisition compared to D90 series and below.

@glenn, yes thank you for pointing out the fast tracking system of the pro bodies, this is extremely helpful in moving targets like those cute kids running around during the wedding ceremony when you have to get candid images of them, as well as in your case, supersonic fighters taking off your carrier.  :)

bottom line combo pa rin nang good lens + good body, and it depends on your shooting style also. the semipro/pro bodies are priced higher for a good reason and if you make part of your living on photography you will definitely, definitely notice the improvements compared to the consumer-oriented bodies of camera brands.

good example sir thanks much.......aantayin ko nalang muna sigurong bumaba konti ang D300s ito lang ang allowed ng budget ko considering D7k is much cheaper and much newer technology but your right it depends on shooting conditions and lens combo.......but lets say a 3rd party lens 17-50 2.8F will it pwerform ok on D300s or D7k on wedding events

D7000 outguns the D300s in all aspects except AF points. read reviews sa mga net. personally, comparing both mas gusto ko talaga ang D7000 lalo na ang video features niya kasi halatang halata pa talaga ang jelly effect ng videos ng D300s ko compare sa D7000 ko. clean high ISO din.

the d7000 is in my opinion a better choice, over all performance, but its smaller than the 300s, makes it feel more undercapable. I also prefer an CF body than a SD. but If you are going to use it all around il will go for the 7000 hands down.

I want to use video or intervalometer as well aside from taking a shoots in Sports, Landscapes, Portraiture...

Thank You Guys
