Also considering D300s
I am in the similar position as OP with my trusty D70 acting up and finally needing replacement after almost ten years of use.
I went from store-to-store trying D7000/D7100, D600/800, as well as D300s (I had hard time finding it tho). I even tried Canons but I am not a big fan of one dial and big wheel on the back.
Since I have DX lenses I was looking and APS-C sensor (and perhaps make a jump to FX at next upgrade) which leaves me with either D7100 or D300s. Interestingly, anytime I ask for D300s I get: "Why? D7100 is much better."
For me, handling and size of D300s feels much better than D7100. Of course, you are paying for nearly decade-old sensor. Looking at dpreview.com, noise performance is pretty close to D7100 even at ISO 6400 ...
My question is: Is it really unreasonable to pull a trigger of D300s these days?
PS. I keep coming back to nikonrumors.com looking for news on D400/D9000 to replace D300s. With no acute rumors at this time, perhaps D7100 really is meant to replace/merge D300s line.

That said, I love my D300s and shudder at the though of the cost to go back to full frame, not just for the body cost but also the new lenses I'd have to buy.
