    IMHO which country a product is made has totally no correlation with defect/failure rate.

    Whether a factory is managed well, I think that is key.
    Yes, I totally agreed with you bro D123. Just my opinion lah. That's why i say "may"

    But when it comes to Toyota, I make sure I buy JDM only cos I hv too many friend telling their MiT Camry is crap S#*^ but my JDM is smooth all the way

    Just joined the forum and my first post goes to this thread,
    im stuck between d7000 and 300s maybe a canon 7d. d7k mainly cos of its price and d300s for the body.
    however, is there a d300s kit? i dont seem to be able to find any online.
    i currently use a borrowed d60. and purchased a 50mm 1.8

    IMHO, I wld go for the D300s depending on your primary use of the DSLR.
    How often do you do HD video vs still shoots?
    Do you also need mega-pixels ie 16mp vs 12mp? Most often, 12mp is more than enough unless you wanna do huge prints. Either way, the D300s is sufficient.
    Is fast AF important?
    D300s has gained a respectable reputation as a DSLR; has quite a following and also used by pros...
    D7K is relatively new and at the rate Nikon is churning out entry-level or mid-entry cams, I wont be surprised if D7000S/8000 is already in the pipeline.

    If you are one who's into newer models, by all means, get the D7000 but get a good lens to go with it. Good, I mean, a 17-55mm f2.8 lens. My humble 2-cents

    You might want to know the best rated Toyota factory is the one in Canada actually, in Ontario. They make the Camrys for the American market and also Lexus RX300, I think.

    not long ago, nikon has a D300s promotion which is about 2k and free a 50 1.8d lens if i'm not wrong.

    brand new prime 50 1.8d is around $200, 30 1.8g around 300+.

    kit lens like 18-55, 18-105 should be around 300.

    Maybe, the new D300X or D400 should use 2 or more CF cards and name the slots A, B, etc. Don't rojak mix CF with SD. Why? Not sure also.

    Compared with D7000, please note that D300s come with additional bonuses:

    - 2x 8Gbyte SD Card
    - AFD 50mm f/1.8

    your best bet is to ask whoever processed the image..but he may not want to share with you his PP technique
    Canon 5D Mark II

    That's why we have CS, to share

    Shooting in RAW would be easier to adjust WB, but not compulsory.

    The color could be changed by PP software, edit from JPEG or RAW file format, by adjusting the Hue and Saturation.

    I don't get it, why you choose a D300s, when all the above you mentioned shows that D7000 outperform D300s, other than D300s is perceived to be use by pros, and D7000 is an entry level...

    Are u using the features of the camera or bothering about how people perceive you with the type of camera you are carrying?

    Just my honest and brutal feedback...
