Question
Should I ditch my Sony A200 for Nikon D300?

Comments please, thanks.
Why don't you ditch it for the Canon 5D MKII?
Or a D3x? :confused:

This should be in Kopitam.

What makes you ask this question? What are the reason? We can't help you if you just give us such a question...

Looking for an upgrade?

A200 is an entry level cam while D300 is a semi-pro model. Of course it's worth to upgrade. But why jump ship from Sony to Nikon is another question since Sony offers A700 and A900?

LOL :bsmilie:

suddenly got an urge to switch system...
but was unsure whether is it worth or should go for the switch :cry:
If switch to D3x/D3/5DMKII, of course worth it! :)

Try A900. ;p Save your lenses.

Worth or not you will have to answer for yourself.

Each system has their pros & cons, there is no one system which is able to satisfy all your needs. Do weigh the advantages from the 2 cams & decide for yourself. You may also want to rent a D300 and give it a test run to see if you like it.

Unless there is a real reason for you to get D300, maybe because of the features that you need. Then it will justify a switch.

If you're comfortable with A200, then why switch? Don't be easily tempted.

But if you really want to ditch your A200, it is as easy as dumping into the dustbin.:bsmilie:

Comparing the A200 to a D300 is a bit odd. The A200 is an entry level model, like the D40, D40X and D60. The D300 is miles different!! Then again, so is the A700. I suggest you give the A700 a try too, it's a massive step up from the A200, uses the same sensor as the D300 and is a lot cheaper.

Oh man.. people want to change then let him change please. Why even tell him what to do ? :bsmilie: I say lets buy one good body from all the brands, then problem solved ;p

Probably while you are answering this question and while I'm answering this question, he is wiping the butt of his D300 clean now. :bsmilie:
