I'm a film photographer trying to get my first DSLR. I plan to use only MF lenses that I own already. I love the solid build of old F cameras. I would hate to buy a camera that doesen't fire the shutter exactly when I press the button (it seemed like on some older digital cameras I had to wait a second sometimes)

I probably can't go out and buy a d800. D600 would be stretching the budget. It seems like I could be happy with DX sensor but I've never tried it.

I was considering the d300 because it has 100% viewfinder, but I'm not sure that the image quality would be up to par with newer cameras. Does anyone have any input on this?
