    :lol:

    I won't do it (I dont' think)... but the damn thing has been in my cart 3 times already today.

    As long as I stay focussed I should be alright...

    Must buy fast glass
    Must buy fast glass

    I think I'm good for another hour or so... I may have to come back to this thread for therapy.

    I think getting the D300s would be pure marital suicide. :confused:

    Just buy it, you know you want to. Putting it in your cart 3 times a day and then taking it out... over and over for the next few weeks or month is pointless. You obviously want it bad enough to engage in this silliness... treat it like a band-aid. Yank it off. Just click submit and enjoy your new toy. You're going to be miserable until you do.

    You don't need our affirmation to be a gear junkie. If you're looking to be talked out of it, you're in the wrong place.

    Go buy it. Now. You're a dead to me until you do.

    No, just temporarily bored enough to post a random thought is all.

    For me the D300s isn't worth the extra grand over the D90... maybe next year the price will be more attractive.

    You know it's worth it. It has the 51 point AF system, dual cards, weather sealing, it's a true pro body. It's made of metal, not plastic... man, it's light years ahead of the D90.

    Click "buy now" and be sure to get next day air shipping. Post up some pics tomorrow afternoon, I'll be waiting.

    The D90 is clearly the better body. It's made of plastic and plastic don't rust! :lol:

    The AF on the D300s is sweet, so are the additional external controls, +1 fps rate with the vert grip.......:drool:

    NO!

    Well, technically the D90 is a plastic/aluminum alloy compound...

    Well I'm still a beginner and my opinion doesn't matter much, but I am thoroughly enjoying my D90. As of right now I can't think of many things I would want to do that could not be done with it. I know it's not a professional camera but neither am I. I have always had the mind set that I need to have the next best thing or I always feel like I need to upgrade. I don't believe that is going to be the case with this camera.
