    I chose the D7000 - I like to call it a "Pocket Rocket".
    I needed the extra Megapixels -I print to 150cm wide. AF is no issue, I use last century AI-S optics... do very well when used properly. Overall, the D7000 is compact, agile, and just serious enough for my pocket and outlook. Very powerful creative tool.

    with reference to the topic, i've juz recently purchased the d300s. really enjoyed using it.. love the ergonomics and the size is juz nice for my palms

    AF speed is faster than my d5000 (in terms of determinin focus in low light situations). i dunno how it is compared to the d7000, but im willing to meet up and do a comparison between these 2 models in terms of af speed in low light. the weight is kinda on the heavy side, but i dun realli mind the weight.. easier to balance with lenses of heavier weight also.

    The AF system of D300s is faster. D7000 AF system seems a tad more hesitant than that of D300s, even though it is a later MC-4800DX AF module vs that of MC-3500DX AF module in D300s. However, whenever D7000 locks on focus, it seems more accurate and without the front/ rear focus issue sometimes associated with the D300s.

    Having used both, may be a good way to look at it is that, it feels really good holding and shooting with a D300s esp with MB-D10.

    As for D7000, the "Feel Good" factor come later when one reviews the captured images on monitor screen after the shoot.

    Having the MC-4800DX (MC-4800 series) won't make D7000 have the BEST Auto-Focus system in the current Nikon line-up though.

    For your info D700, D3, D3s, all use MC-3500FX and D300(s) use MC-3500DX (All use MC-3500 series).

    As additional, D7000 only have 9 Cross-Type sensors, that's why Nikon introduce a new Auto Focus Sensor Module --> MC-4800 series.

    While Nikon D300(s), D700, D3, D3s have 15 Cross-Type sensors --> MC-3500 series.

    Recommend that you also do some verification checks on AF accuracy of your D300s. The piece that I had (bought brand new), the focus drifted quite a bit (both front and rear) with various tele zoom and prime lenses. The drift was even more obvious when Nikon teleconverters (all TC-14E, 17E and 20E) are in use. Even if you were to bring over to NSC, they could only calibrate against their reference & it will not match with all your respective lenses. Good thing is that it is a one-off exercise, and D300s has a good feature to memorize and automatically correct for the pre-stored corrections under its AF-fine tune feature.

    already did. all my lenses r spot on, n i haf 2 nikkor zooms (16-85 and 12-24) n a prime (35 f/1.8). judgin by my photos i take daily, they r equally sharp as taken with my d5000.

    D7000.

    Don't get buzz over technical stuff like 51 AF points over 39 AF points.

    Always test the camera and check your preferences.

    Your lenses and body should be calibrated according to the Nikon standard reference.
    In case the lenses were calibrated based on of your camera body, later if you upgraded the body, you would need to re-calibrate all of you lenses though.

    Front / rear focus usually are more apparent on tele primes and zoom lenses.

    I had a friend who sent his Sigma lens for calibration. He brought his Sigma lens to be calibrated based on his old Nikon body at Sigma Service Center. Later he sold the old Nikon body and purchased a newer model. He found out that Sigma lens had a new back focus issue.

    What I mean, if you want to calibrate your gears, you should be sure that your Nikon Body had already being checked based on Nikon standard reference.

    d300s got a feature known as "AF fine tune". usually this feature is enough to correct minor back/front focusing issues on lenses, but it will not affect the lenses' calibrations. it's like telling the body how it should focus on a particular lens.
