An outstanding DX format camera!!!,
This review is from: Nikon D300 Body Only (Camera)
This is absolutely lovely piece of kit. Resolution, high-iso performance, AF system, speed and customization options are all top-notch. Despite all the features it's incredibly easy to use - you could literally pick it up and go out taking pictures within minutes. The optional grip makes it as fast as Nikon's previous sport/reporter camera, the D2H, but at much higher resolution. It's also got the best viewfinder as far as APS-C format cameras go. My only gripe is with positioning of cross type AF sensors - I would prefer them to be a bit more wide-spreaded, rather than packed in the middle. But that's nit-picking. It improves on D200 in EVERY respect, betters D2H and is as good as D2X, just for less (much less in fact) than half-price. What's not to like?
