I have a dilemma. I believe I've used the D40x to its potential, and I've become really frustrated with the lens limitations, so I sold it yesterday with my 18-135 nikkor (came in the kit) for $550CDN. I think I got a good deal on it especially that you can buy a brand new D60 with 18-55 for around $600CDN. So now I am stuck between the D90 and the D300. I have some good deals on both of them, but not sure which one is best for me. I can get the D300 for just a bit more than the D90. Here is the offer I have on the D300 - I pushed the price down to $1400 CDN. BNIB NIKON D300 with 18-70mm DX LENS 1 Actuation Here is the offers I am getting on the D90, with the second one I pushed the price down to $1590CDN. 69105 NIKON D90 KIT WITH AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105MM F3.5-5.6 G ED VR LENS,Review - Cendirect Canada Nikon D90 Digital SLR Camera Body +5 Lens 16gb * NEW * on eBay.ca (item 130318757884 end time 13-Aug-09 17:49:51 EDT) Now I've done some research and it seems that consensus on how these two cameras differ revolves around the 51 point auto-focus system, the durability, and the speed of the D300 over the D90. I do mostly outdoor photography, focusing on landscapes, waterscapes, and urban photography. I am going on a trip to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and India real soon and want to do lots of street photography. Hopefully sometime in the near future I want to cover some more local events and get into wedding photography - as an assistant or intern at first. So basically I need a camera that will help me... - shoot in low light situations - shoot outdoors - autofocus with my 50mm f/1.8 (they both do, I know) - and is a good investment The only thing that concerns me about the D300 in general is that it uses CF cards, which means all 16 GB of memory I have in SD will be gone to waste. Also, the offer I mentioned above for the D300 is kind of sketching me out because it was a demo at a store (brand new though). However, the lens that comes with it is great. The offers I have on the D90 are good too, especially the one on ebay seems like the way to go. I just need some guidance on what to do at this point, I have around $1500 CDN I am willing to spend...any advice would be great!
