With a D300 I mostly shoot outdoors with various landscape and general topics (old buildings, interesting rock formations, trees, gardens, flowers, etc.) This means that I am usually at f8 to f16 and at base ISO. I rarely shoot indoors and rarely photograph people.

I am wondering if going to a D700 would improve my image quality over the D300 considering the type of photography that I do? I rarely enlarge above 16 X 20 or 13 x 19.

A secondary question is: Would sticking with the D300 and adding the Nikon 24-70 2.8 significantly improve my Image Quality or would I have to do the D300 to D700 upgrade to get any real improvement?

I don't want to spend money unnecessarily, but if change to the 24-70 with the D300 or going all the way and changing to the D700 with the 24-70 would make a significant improvement I would.

Being an old guy, almost 77, I really don't want to carry any more weight than I really have to.

I am particulary interested in hearing from those who have had experience with both the D300 and D700

Thanks in advance,

Jerry R
