    Hi,looking for a bit advice about buying a used camera for the above subjects.My main concerns at the moment are autofocus speed rather than pixels,and for my budget of around 400-450 I can get a D2x or a D7000. Basically is the older 'Pro' camera better suited to fast moving subjects than the newer 'enthusiast' model. Any other suggestions? Thanks.

    No only problem you will face with the d7000 is the buffer filling and having to wait. The af is more advanced than the d2x. The D300/s is also worth looking at over the D7000.

    The D2X is excellent in the studio where it's probably working at base ISO but the high ISO performance is lamentable. It's better to look at the next generation such as D300, D300s or D700 because noise will be reduced and AF will be faster.

    On your budget the d7000 is a good bet .
    You would struggle to find a "good" used D2x at your budget also you will need suitable lenses, so extra funds will need to be allocated at least double what you intend paying for the body

    With your budget, you'll need to decide what features you can do without. The D300S might have the best balance of reasonable hi ISO performance, AF response, pixel count and price.

    The "pro" cameras are intended for heavy use and inconsiderate treatment so are very well weather sealed.
