    Your friend never say D3 better meh?

    Anyway between D90 or D300, you will not go wrong with either. Its just which one will serve your needs. Have tried the D300, was very impressed. Have not tried D90 though.

    if you're just starting out, i think you'll find that the d90 is a lot more camera than you could handle.

    my suggestion, get the d90 and use the money you saved on lenses.
    Today is a gift; that's why it's called the present.

    I would go for the D300 since as you said it is also within budget and the reviews are very good. While it is true that you can save some $ now by going for the D90, it may also happen that later you decide to "upgrade" and then lose $ when you sell it. My 2 c

    Just bought the D90 and love it

    Used to have the D200 (almost the same in feel as the D300)
    A tad heavy for me when using large lenses + flash

    different class for different needs

    Dxxx is a semi pro, more operator control and lens support

    D90 is a entry for general user

    D80 still have the best image quality

    make the decision by your needs

    Yes, D90 and D300 are in different class

    D90 - Video mode
    D300 - ability to meter with AIS lens

    These are some of the considerations i will make if i am choosing between the two.

    There are slight differences, just pick what you need.

    BTW, are the viewfinder the same? in terms of brightness, size?
