IIRC the D300s has one CF and one SD slot.
Just like the D800 interesting, eh?!

I guess they save a little space in the body.

Maybe it is just me but I don't see why anyone would prefer to have 1 CF card and 1 SD card in the same camera. I didn't think it made much sense when they did it before and I still don't understand the logic now.

just happened today out with a client....action was hot and heavy he filled his 2nd card and the cars were
a several hundred yds away thru brush and cover. He freaked, I calmly opened my backup (hip) and gave him
an SD. Hardly missed an op. Had he been shootin dual CF's he'd be hikin' back, pissed. I don't get tips when da
clients are pissed. This happens at least once a month during migrations, makes total sense to me. Love choices.

TM, good catch on your part. If I ever get to the point where I am taking a client out, I would hope I would think to bring back up cards for his camera. And, actually, my camera bag does have several extra CF and SD cards in it. So were you shooting some more of those sandhill cranes?

I stuck with the D300s because a D7000 would have been more than just the money for the camera: I have 4 spare batteries, arca-swiss plates, 10-pin connector adapters like a wireless release and GPS...

Just something to consider - I don't know how much of this stuff you have. I would have loved to upgrade to a D800 but I could swap the D300 for a D300s for about $300 all-told. The D7000 would likewise have cost me the camera cost, plus a couple hundred in plates, a hundred in 10-pin adapters, a hundred in batteries...

I guess the question in my mind is what causes you to miss shots?

For me, as an amateur/enthusiast who mainly shoots landscapes, travel and candids, handling held me back far more often than the sensor did. I am so much faster with my D300s than I was with my D90 (which has handling very similar to the D7000).

Everyone is different, so maybe switching between two handling schemes won't be an issue, or the D7K is fine for you (it certainly doesn't hold Tim/Trenchmonkey back at all).

The D300s has been a revelation for me. If they make a D400, maybe I'll switch, but the sensor hasn't been a problem.

The D800 shares the size and better controls plus the best Video.
For my use, even the DX mode is superior in image quality to the D300.

I also much prefer the 1080P at 30fps Video of the D5100 to either the D300s or D7000.
For stills, I prefer the D7000 image to the D300s, especially as a companion to the D3.

I do Event Photography (Runs, MotoCross, Equestrian).
I am the Church Videographer using mostly a V1 but also the D800.
I do a lot of hiking and landscape photography too.
