Hello Folks, I just wanted to get some feedback on what I'm planning to do. I currently own a d200, but i'm thinking about selling it and getting the D300. I was all gung-ho about it a week ago. But after reading different sites online I'm really concerned with the 2 major problems users have been reporting: 1) DBS which is "dead battery symptom" or whatever they're calling it. What is occurring to d300 owners apparently is that the battery( although fully charged) is appearing as empty or almost dead on the screen. 2) The second problem is linked to the lens mounts. Some people have singled out the 18-200 mm VR lens (but this may occur to other lenses) and a failure to Autofocus... or contact problems. I've also heard that Nikon has not acknowledged these problems...and offers no fix at the moment. I'm confident they will if it is deemed a defect on the model itself. I am concerned because I don't really have a second camera, I only have a d200 now which i'll have to sell for this D300. So I don't want my only camera recalled, or in repairs for a while. Also, others who have not experienced any trouble have all this to think about as their image count climbs. I'm still a student so this is a big purchase for me.... and i don't want to be using it afraid of bugs popping up. That said, I purchased my d200 last year, so pretty late compared to others. The d300 is still under a year old. I don't usually buy first gen. gadgets (especially high priced ones) because I wait for a price drop, and don't want to deal with the first batch bugs. Is anyone else making this jump from the d200? or already have? Maybe some d300 owners can put my mind to rest? If i was getting the d300 as a second unit I wouldn't care as much. But I'll have to go through the hassle of selling my d200 for this.... I just don't want to be stuck up a river.... thanks in advance for your input.
