Hello. Maybe this video can help.
I personally prefer the D7000 because I don’t need the 51 points of focusing neither the 8 frames per second, because I don’t shoot too many fast sport scenes. D7000 could also perform 8 frames per second if you use it with a grip. D7000 is better in ISO performances, have 2 slots for SD cards and has 4 Megapixels extra than D300s. See some compared features for detail: http://snapsort.com/compare/Ni…..ikon_D7000

I don’t know the differences btw D300 and D300s.

I agree with danielaportela, I would go with D7000. Better image quality, video capability, better ISO performance, higher true resolution, more storage slots (2). It wins in almost everything and it also cheaper.

I am looking to purchase a D7000: great price point at $699 body only but my budget for lenses is somewhat restricted.  I like to shoot primarily landscapes, buildings, places and people that pique my interest. My skill level: novice.  I would like to spend less than a $1000 on lenses. Considering Tamron 18-270 and Tamron 10-24 this should cover most of my needs at around $900.  Nikkor lenses would cost about $1700 for near the same focal lengths.  Would I be better off to buy one of the higher quality lenses now and wait to buy the other or at the novice level could I appreciate the difference.  Anyone have recommendations or warnings?

Jennings… It is possible that you can buy the D7100 for less than $200 more.
I’d go with that with the Tamron 18-270 only for now.  It’s a good “walk around lens”
and the 10-24 could wait until you decided that you really need it.

Nikon D7000 is a great camera. I have it and am happy with it. The only issue I had was back focusing. I have a video about that:
Lesson18 – AF Fine Tuning (Back Focus and Front Focus).

But if you can, I would go with newer D7100.
Tamron 18-270 mm should be enough to start with.
You can easily get away without 10-24 mm unless you are like indoor architecture photographer. Buy one lens first, start shooting and you might need something totally different.

Ron & Oksana, I will look into your suggestions.  I tend to be cautious with my online purchasing hearing so many negative stories. I appreciate your feedback.

Jennings… I don’t blame you.  I was not suggesting this particular retailer and, in fact have removed the link to it’s site.  I was just thinking that the cost of a D7100 might not be out of your price range, especially if you held off the purchase of a second lens.

I agree with you on online purchases… I can tell you I’ve used B&H photo online and have not had any issues with purchases or returns… if you don’t like it, they take it back.

I personally buy most of the equipment from the local store, with who I have a friendly relationships for a long time already. 

But I know a lot of people who use B&H photo video online and are happy with them.

I have the d7000 and d7100. Very little difference in the two. The d7000 took
fantastic pictures (until the shutter broke unfortunately) The d7100 also takes
wonderful pictures with a LITTLE extra resolution if you look closely. If I had to
pick one I would pick the d7100 as it is nearly 3 years newer with a few additional
bells and whistles BUT if I bought another d7000 I guarantee you I would be a happy
photographer. It just takes wonderful pictures and the difference between 16 and 24
mp’s is very small.
The d300 is a dinosaur now and should not be considered in the same league as the newer
cameras.
