Summary: I am very disappointed about my purchase. Due to the low price, I review several times the link because I want to make sure the camera was in good condition, also I wrote to Susan (the seller), and the answer was: "the camera is in excellent condition".
Summary: The camera is loaded with technology that I personally find easy to figure out and get comfortable with. Obviously you get as good a picture as your lense allows you to get. There is also the limitations that come with any partial frame camera.
The Camera of My Dreams (But know what you're buying)

Summary: Hello everybody, My name is Daniel and I am about as serious as you can be and still be considered "amateur". I have been taking photos on SLR's since I was 10 years old on an old film Minolta and I bought my first DSLR (a Nikon D50) and since then I have owned everything from a base line Canon XSi...
Summary: Having used and abused my Nikon D300 since it originally came on the market, sold thousands of dollars worth of photographs in galleries and personal collections, put it through the most horrible photographic conditions like high winds filled with fine dust, beat it around in a Jeep capturing back...
Excerpt: The D300s is a great camera, I elected to get the BL-3 battery cover to get more FPS and it works beautifully. It can keep up with my D700 no problem. The video part of the D300s is fine but just wish it had manual exposure. Along with no full auto focus it makes it difficult to follow any action.
Summary: I started with the D40. Obviously, there's no comparison between the two performance wise, so let me stick with functionality. First, one of the things that drove me crazy with the D40 was having to navigate menus to change key settings like the meter, autofocus type, autofocus method.
Summary: The price of the D300s mated with an 18-200mm VR II lens had dropped down to $1800 and some change after Christmas around the time when the D7000 came out. Really!!! Why go back to $2300 now??? A measley 13% discount.
Summary: Upgraded from the D40 6.1 mp. What a big difference in build, speed and picture quality! I'm planning on purchasing either the 17-55mm or the 24-70mm to go along with the D300s. I already have the 50mm and 35mm, great lenes! This camera paired with the MB-D10 battery pack feels great!
