    Have used now 2 different D300 bodies, with my 17-55 f2.8 Nikkor lens... On both of these bodies, I see something that I can only describe as a halo effect around anything shiny [reflections off painted surfaces, chrome, metals etc]. Kind of like what I would see from cheap glass.

    OK I also shot with my 50mm f1.4 and guess what........ same thing.

    I don;t see this using a D200, or a D80..... Back to back shots using different camera bodies, with these lens.. Big differences. GRRRRR. I shot with the camera store guy standing over my shoulder, then inside to print.

    OK I can only assume they all are like that? I can keep taking back camera bodies but it is a waste of time. Looks like I will wait until Nikon gets it together with their sensor to step up beyond the 2/200 series?

    Anyone else notice? I dunno bout you but I want to ee a crisp reflection, not a blurry halo..

    Hi, I don't own a D300 (just a 200) but what are the particulars? Do you have any examples?

    jpeg. didn;t do any wierd settings, probably had it at iso 200 aperture priority [just out of habit], walked outside the shop cickity click click

    actual technical term would be "chromatic abborations"

    very noticable in print compared to D200 or D80 shots of same things, same times etc. Drats. Everything about the D300 I was just loving.... THis is a deal breaker if it turns out to be common.

    Didn;t keep anything, just shot, printed, circular file. :thumbdown:

    [no way it is a lens thing, we tried different lens, on all the bodies.]

    What about the D lighting setting. If some one set the cameras for in store shooting they may have set them up already to try and get the most out of them. Then you take it out side with out adjusting it can really throw things off. Just an idea if they were both demos

    Do you happen to have a crap filer on your lens? Probably not, but that is not the norm for the D300. At all.

    Weird...
