Good day BushNuts,
There is no proper review yet only specifications on it. Like I said the pro’s only got there hands on it in the last two weeks and it will take a month before there will be a proper review available. Current frets tend to that the D7000 is better in low light conditions than D300s. Look it in this way..
If you an photo enthusiast- amateur photographer the D7000 will be good for you. Most of the control you can set to Auto and let the camera decide with is the best settings.
If you are a amateur- pro photographer the D300s is better as you have more control over the settings. But bare in mind you need to have same understanding of settings to get good results other wise you can get frustrated.
Difference between n consumer an pro photographer is never the camera but you as the shooter. If you going to shoot most setting auto you going to get 30 to 40% good photos were as n pro under stands all the elements and shoot manual and get it right 80-90% of the times
So question is do you shoot manual or Auto most of the time?
Like the pro says…..D300s leans pro and D7000 leans consumer and that is not because one is better than the other but the way you shoot as one you can control more than the other.
Read the 2 reviews below and then you get an idea what I am talking abouthttp://www.bythom.com/nikond300review.htmhttp://www.bythom.com/nikond90review.htm
This is the D90 review. Bear in mind the D7000 replace this and this review will give you idée as to what the D7000 will hold in.
