I noticed that about everything I have read suggests that you leave the D300 set to its default which allows exposure to be adjusted in 1/3 stops. I noticed that Moose Peterson has his D300 set to 1/2 stops. (http://www.moosepeterson.com/gear/d300.html).

I have thought that setting the camera to 1/2 stop allows you to get where you want to be with your aperture and shutter speed faster but I never hear anyone mention this.

Does anyone else here shoot with 1/2 stop exposure? If so please tell me why you like that better then the 1/3 stop default.

So far I have only shot with 1/3 stop settings but I may set my camera to 1/2 stop and give it a try.
