does someone own the 7d and d300S or d300?

i would like to know a real experience about tracking mode

on the net , there are a lot of reviews ,but many or they are handmade/homemade tests or factious, partisan opinions


did you find the cameras on the same levels or there are lacks of tracking(missed focus shots) ?


thanks

sorry for my english

Never owned the D300/D300s but used to own a 7D and it's decent. It's a nice upgrade of the AF system from the xxD and 5D series bodies. All of the points are crosstype, it had good coverage in the VF, and there are newer features like spot AF, which works well for smaller targets where you need to be more precise. I think outdoors in good light, either camera would do fine.

Never owned them but it sounds like the D300 is really bad in low light and the D300s is only slightly better but those weren't comprehensive tests that I read.

I owned the 40 and 50D's and I now own the D300. The auto focus is better in the D300. If you think the focus of the D300 is really bad in low light, you are VERY wrong.

I guess it comes down to what one considers good and bad. Regardless, that's just what I read and once again (which you missed the first time), it wasn't a comprehensive comparison.

as far as I know... the D300's AF system is exactly the same as the D700 :D

Not wasn't missed the first time. It was just wrong. I base it on my first-hand experience and not what I have read.

It was ignored and thus sounded like you have something against anyone saying anything contrary to what you may believe. Shhh, calm down. I'll let others chime in instead.

The 7D's AF system is far more advanced that the one in the 40D and 50D. I think the 7D and D300 are most likely comparable both in AF and IQ. Again, I wouldn't know anything about the D300.
