Having 30 years experience with Canon Film cameras, deciding on Nikon for my 1st foray into the digital world was quite daunting. But after reading reviews for almost a year, and visiting camera shops to actually hold the camera I was convinced that the Nikon D300 was made specifically for me. I was totally blown away by the multitude of in-camera functions available, it was almost like having a portable dark room at my disposal..., and the menu system was custom made for the way I think, the controls logical and balanced with numerous ways to customize the controls tou tour own personal tastes. What's there not to like. For the price the D300 is a real bargin.
