Nikon D300

d300
Review Date: Jan 11, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: The major features for me were the 100% viewfinder and the new 51 segment AF. Handling is superb with everything falling to, well, hand. The images are usable at all ISOs and you can get some particularly contrasty, meaty black and white images at ISO 3200 and 6400 with the right set up.
Cons:
As someone who is partially disabled I found the box a little hard to get into at first...

I've been using the D300 since the beginning of December and it's quite simply the best camera I've ever owned. How good is it? I was a Canon user for 19 years until December the 5th when I picked up the D300. I'm now selling all my Canon stuff and gradually buying a Nikon range (hopefully the 70-200 f2.8 next). And I always wanted an FM2n as a second camera anyway ;-)
