Many thanks for all who answered
Many thanks for all those who answered my enquiry
It was quite revealing as to which way different people rate their own priorities in reply to anothers.
The 300 that I had on loan was ecellent at ISO 2000 for a dull day but the lcd didnt seem to show a sharp image, I wasnt able to download to a PC as the relevant cables were not on loan.
The D80 doesnt give me much of a problem with the footy photos as I up the ISO to 800 / 1000 and set the speed to 1ooo also. If the good photos are keepers I then put them thro a noise reduction program.
I always shhot RAW
The only sticking point with the 7000 is that Ive heard of the 6fps goes down to 1 fps when shooting RAW or am I not understanding this correctly, whereas the 300s can shoot TIFF and the 7000 doesnt.
Also as I mentioned the menus onmj the 300s seem complicated and I cant get my head around some of the choices as against the simple menus on the D80, I admit the 80 is not in the same league being enthusiast only and not semi pro.
The other thing I forgot to mention is that this will be my last camera purchase as I have just been diagnosed with something you wouldnt want. Do not cry for me Argentina or feel sorry that is something I
want or need.
I just want to make the last purchase a good one for Macro and the footy
Thanks again for all the replies
I still havnt made my mind up, but will try to get a demo on the 7000 first
Any other comments or replies with regard to the choice of camera only would still be appreciated
