the d7000 has better high-iso performance than d300s and is newer. but if you can wait a few months, d700 prices may fall if a replacement is announced. if they drop to $2000-$2200, it might make sense to get that,if that's what you really want. OTOH, getting a FF camera means you need FX-compatible lenses. for the price differential--about $1000-- you could get some nice glass if you stick w/d7000. i wouldn't get a d300s now unless you specifically need something it has which D7000 doesn't, like 8fps.
