Hi Everyone. I am new to Nikonians and also new to Nikon. I am very, very happy to be here. I love this place and my fellow Nikonians. I came from Canon film cameras from many years past. Always wanted a Nikon body and lenses

Currently, I own a D700 (for few nonths) shooting with Nikon lenses:
24-70 2.8 / 70-200 2.8 / 80-400 VR / 105 2.8 Macro / 50mm 1.4 / Sigma 18- 200 (I was talked into buying this lens; good salesman I guess).

Heres my question .... I'm thinking of picking up an extra body. Less lens changing, etc. I really don't want to spring for another D700. What are the advantages / disadvantages to picking up a D300
other than the real obvious ones. My gut tells me this could be a great combo? My gut instinct has deceived me in the past though.
All you (smarter than me) guys and gals out there; can you give me the pros and cons? What will I gain, what will I lose? Or should I spring for another D700 or just keep the one D700 I have?

I would very much appreciate as much input, from as many smart people whom are willing to help. If you can answer these questions I'll be one happy Nikonian.

Thank you (in advance) very much. I appreciate help and interest.

Regards,

Bob (luke700)
