Don't waste your money

Disappointed Photographer, Adorama
12 September 2009
  • Excerpt: I purchased the refurbished model and added the three year warranty to ensure I would not have any problems. The camera did not work upon receiving it. It did not autofocus and the aperture gave me an error signal and would not move off of F zero.

Roll The Dice For $2500.00

William J. Dwyer II, Amazon
16 February 2009
  • Summary: I and I hope many others will refuse to roll the dice on an $1800.00 Nikon D-300 body. I will stick with my F-100 until I hear good things about warranty repair and mean time between failure!

Very disappointed

Suzette LeBarron, Amazon
14 February 2009
  • Summary: I ordered my Nikon D300 Nov. 18, 2008. I have wanted a Nikon for many years and after I got into digital I wanted a dslr. I decided the Nikon D300 would be the best I could buy. It worked great for about 2 months. Now it has developed the dead power problem. The AF stops working after a few shots.

17 September 2008
  • Summary: Ich hatte letztes Wochenende die Gelegenheit die Nikon D 300 im Vergleich zur Canon EOS 5D im Fotoalltag zu testen. Leider kann ich die sehr positiven Rezensionen nicht verstehen. Ich bin Profifotograf und dachte dieses Gerät hält, was es verspricht.
