I have never been happy with the way the D300 exposes, leaning towards hot, and quite often, blown highlights. And the low light performance is very disappointing. The colors, even in the "neutral" setting, are oversaturated, wonky, and blocky looking. It came out with so much hype, but is now such an outdated camera. Only a few years after its release. Just because it is a Nikon does not necessarly mean it is a great camera. It does suffer from numerous weaknesses.
