i was damn hesitant, considering between the D300 and D90.
i went for the D300 (followed my heart, though pocket damn pain), and the moment i held it in my hands, all my doubts and regrets just went away...
deep inside me i also know that this will be my last upgrade, for the next 18 months. haha. i hope.
aiya, illustrate a simple example...my lady friend asked me if she shld buy this dress she liked, but didnt know if she needed another dress or fit the style of the dress.. ask and ask and ask, in the end, i told her my frank opinion was..."no doesnt really suit u i think"
Fine, i told her my opinion, but i think it hardly matters! Because the next day i received a phone call from her saying that she went back to get that dress and was on cloud number nine.
So moral of story, who cares it if suits u, fit it, or whatever, if you can afford it, and you like it, buy it!
I am also an ex d70 user, recently just upgraded to the D300, loving every moment of it. The larger LCD , better metering and that 51 point af is also a plus point.
My D70 lasted a almost 4 years before i decided to upgrade, this D300 will last another 4-5 years i hope.
It was only recently that I decided to move from the age of the dinosaurs and made the quantum leap to DSLR's.
I bought a D300 and though I am still trying to come to grips with all it's capabilities, I am happy to say I am rapt with the results I am obtaining.
There are rumours now of a D400 and if the rumours are true, I think it may push the price of the D300's downwards.
E3 + SDW 12-60 + SDW 50-200 + pancake 25mm + 11-22 + 18-180 + Sigma 30mm f1.4 + FL50 (R has not come out then) + minifridge .. er I mean drybox ... + set of filters + extra batteries ...
OK I am joking.
Got a guy in FourThirds called andrewine who uses E520 + kit lense! KIT LENSE! and he took better photos than me.
