Yeah - I was a lot more ready for the manual once I'd gotten some general familiarity with the menus, etc. The Excel sheet here is said to be very good - I'm just trying to find the D300s version.

As for Ken, he drives me a little crazy, but probably better for me to leave it at that...

Thanks! I've really enjoyed the blog, and have been surprised at how much reaction/traffic it gets.

I've noticed a lot of pros tend toward leaving the tools they work with at home when they are on vacation. Certainly understandable, and the size and weight of an SLR is certainly an issue. One of these days I'll probably jump on a Nikon V1 (or more likely whatever is there a few years from now) - the kit with lenses is so small for the terrific capabilities of the body, plus you can add the FT-1 if you want to use your big Nikon glass. But I digress...

I think you'll find that the D300s offers a lot in trade for the D90 - the hardware controls are terrific, and I don't see myself moving back to the handling of the D90/D7000/D600 in the future. The handling is soooo seamless.
