    with DP review, IMO its best to look at the test images, and figure out the better camera yourself.

    Since dPreview sold out to Amazon, the hard-hitting comments about flaws and overlooked or under-cooked design features present in camera bodies have largely been abandoned, in favor of a more sales-friendly attitude toward the reviewed products. The hard-hitting, direct, point-blank comments the reviewers used to make in their d-slr reviews are a thing of the past. The new reviews are what I would call softball reviews. Of course, considering that the corporate owner is a mega-retailer that works in concert with many,many photo equipment vendors, hard-hitting, critical reviews could harm sales made on click-throughs.

    It seems to me that dPreview has lost much of its former shine.

    No, and this comparison shows why.

    The 7D gets a 9.5 in features compared to the D300s 9.0? :lol: Right.

    I would say the D300s is the clear winner in a dual between these two bodies.

    I still like dpreview to research information and specs on cameras. But other than that, I also find their reviews are very soft.

    Anyone have a more direct review site?

    I read the reviews and thought there was nothing there that would cause me to even think about jumping brands. So, I'm curious as to your opinion of why there is a 'clear winner'. And if I understand the application of the smilie, what the 300S offers to provide the superior feature set.

    So they kept comparing it to a 50D, is it a 1.6 processor or full frame?

    Why would one pay $1700 for a 1.6 camera? :confused:
