AF point are about the only thing the D300 has up on the K-7.
And fps. The D300 can reach 8fps with the grip.

The K-7 is much above the D90, better than the 50D (but better VF, WR and video) except for fps and maybe AF, and hold its own against the D300 but if you care for fps/AF, D300 wins, if you care for video, K-7 wins. So it's not clear cut but it certainly belongs in the top-of-the-line APS-C cameras along the D300 and 50D.

I'd say if you care about anything else but AF/FPS but I might very well forget something....

We couldn’t decide whether the Nikon D90 or Pentax K-7 should win advanced D-SLRr of the year, so we chose them both.

Note: The Nikon is highlighted with all their sales sponsors. This is too obvious for words. Pentax won but couldn't be on top because they would be stepping on the toes of their sponsors.

Is this greedy or spineless? I can't tell which. It's these publications that perpetuate the two-pony-race. Do these people really think that the consumer doesn't want a choice? They could sell Pentax just as easily if not easier, if the consumer were more informed.
Well, maybe it's time for Hoya to let out some cash for sponsorships. We can sit and whine all day about flagging integrity in PopPhoto and they still won't budge. Money talks, and Hoya has a lot of it.
