Emily Raymond from our website Digital Camera Info has done a comprehensive in-depth review of the Nikon D300 and we recommend giving it a read. The Nikon D300 may not be the "perfect camera" however it does come close according to the review.
One of the first things to impress was the auto-focus system, which is as good as the one found on D3. The new CMOS image sensor enhances the image quality and the high-resolution 3-inch LCD screen is an added bonus.
Excerpt from the review:
"The included software is also insufficient for any real editing, so owners will have to invest in something other than what’s on the CD-ROM. But the users who want to take advantage of these features will probably already have a copy of Photoshop, so that's not a major problem. And while the D300 is expensive at $1,799, it's a bargain for all the performance it offers."
