I've had both 100s and both are fine examples of optical equipment. I shot Canon and kept only my 100 f2.8 macro til I could upgrade, then it was stolen and when I finally upgraded I went to a D850. That was instantly paired with the 105. I can't say one is better than the other but the autofocus on my current kit is wicked.

So, the d300 that I was so generously gifted has surpassed 150K clicks, I’m starting to look at replacements. D7100/7200 or something newer? I have a decent complement of F-mount lenses and tubes.

So this is just my personal opinion. I'm on my second 300, (I should say the one I have now is a 300s). When I had my old 200's, they got up over 200k. These bodys and their mechanics are built very well and will take quite the beating if takin care of. They were made as Pro bodys. The others you are looking at don't fit this type. I don't want to say they won't be fine, but if you haven't tried them, put one in your hands before you buy one. There are a lot of 300s available and you can get them with low count for a very little amount.
My next body will be a d500.

My D300 is still going strong! I haven’t had a single shutter stick. I bought a kit and cleaned the sensor, there was a bit of stubborn dust on it but it’s a champ now. I plan o driveling it into the ground, it is a great body and 12MP is all the resolution I need for our purposes. I’m just being proactive and thinking about the day it had taken it’s last shot.

I would like video and 20K WB setting which I think the D500 can do.

After my first 300, I went to the 300s. It shoots video and uses both SD and CF cards.
