D300 successor?

I haven't been following releases lately. What is considered the modern equivalent or successor to the Nikon D300/300S?

Specifically looking for weather-proof construction. Is this necessarily FX, or is there still something relevant in DX?

There really isn't a true successor to the D300. You can look at the D7100 but that really succeeds the D90, D80, and D70 not the D300/D300s. Or you can look at the entry level FX which is the D600/D610 but that in many ways is an fx camera in basically a d7100 shell.

If you are looking to replace your D300 go with either D800 or D700. bmwti is right about the D7100 being really close to the D610. There are some things that set them apart, but its pretty close. I'm waiting to go full frame with the D610.

The D300s is suppose to be the successor of the D300. Some of the reviews I've seen on youtube claim that there isn't a huge difference between FX and DX. You still can get the shot with either. FX you can go wider. And it's the closest thing to shooting a SLR camera. WYSIWYG

Thanks, that puts me on the right track. As for a true successor, do you think one is coming? D400? Or is the D800 the new direction?

Lenses are a big consideration, so for that reason and for what I shoot DX would be preferable right now.

There was a rumor that the D400 was suppose to come out Sept. 2013. I'm guessing that if it does come out, you would see the basic upgrades with the mpeg and shutter. The last releases of Nikon DSLR got a boost in white balance (better performance).
