We opened Christmas presents tonight around here. Cathy has to go back to work Saturday evening, so we celebrated a little early. (She works Sat, Sun, Mon, and Tues.) Anyway, I got to open mine on Dec !st, when my new camera was released. Cathy has been teasing me for a few weeks, "When do I get mine?" Tonight was that time. I had gotten her a D300 when they were released the week before and stashed it away. Needless to say, she loves it. It's a shame, but a fact she has always gotten my hand-me-down cameras and computers. This is only her second new Nikon. I was surprised how light it feels compared to the D1X or D3. But all the controls fall right into place as they should. I'm not going to use it much, I have my new weapon of choice, now Cathy has hers. She got all drippy and stuff. So I guess she likes it OK.
