Review Date: Jan 19, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,700.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: handling, autofocus, features
Cons:
The IQ is pretty good but could be better.

I moved to the D300 from a 5D. I didn't move over to Nikon for their image quality. I moved over because I was sick of the 5D body. The autofocus was not up to par for a $3k body. There were other annoyances with the 5D body. What I got in the D300 so far has been incredible focusing, geotagging, weather seals, and speed. I'm ok with the image quality of the D300. Truthfully, any DSLR on the market today will capture great photos. The quality of an image capture has more to do with the lighting and photographer than the camera. The 5D was a great imager but a terrible body. The D300 is a good imager with a great body. Since any camera today can take great images, the better handling was more important to me. It also allowed me to build a Nikon lens collection in case I ever decide to get a D3.
