"RE: D600 v D300(s)"

Just as I wonder if people using older technology post things to make themselves feel better about not being able to step up to new technology for whatever reason... Both fallacies are just as likely.

Each of us has some idea of an ideal camera for ourselves. That is based on needs, as well as wants. If you never have need to take night time photos without flash, or indoor photos withut flash, never have need to print 20x30 or larger, or do any of the things that would make a move to newer technology worthwhile, then by all means, stay with what you have.

There are others of us, professional or not, who have VERY real needs to move along and upgrade cameras. I get paid to shoot sports. Day or night, indoors or out. And flash is prohibited in many of the sports I cover. In order to get the aperture and shutter speed I need on some of the fields, I need ISO 12,000+. And as long as that is true, I will change technology until it can deliver me that ISO without the need for noise reduction in software. We are some years away from that still.

Others may not have similar needs, or different needs. Any of that is fine. For some of my portrait work, I need to be in the 40-50MP range. So I make concessions and try to get there. Clearly, you and others don't have that need. And that's ok too.

Do I still use my D200? Sure. Is it my primary camera? No. And frankly, I am ok with that.
