Hi to you all, it's an interesting link and i'm coming along with a comment. I have a D300 and i must confess that i started to improve my pictures with the D300.At first i had a lot of difficulties mastering the WB,but later i found it a very nice tool to work with. After 6 years with it,some noises appeared when shooting with flash at even 400 iso,together with a shutter which blocks every now and then. I then decided to send it back to Japan for revision.My other alternative was the D7000.I'm much happy to say that i made the right decision and i'm impatiently waiting for it to come back. About the D7000, I barely had some experience with it,but i prefer holding the D300 since i have a large hand with long fingers.I prefer also the toughness and pro feel of the D300 to plastic feel of the D7000. However,i know that the D7000 is better as far as the software is concerned and the dynamic range.
I do have also the D700 and i find these combinations going very well together. Leave you now. Long live to Nikon. Ned
