I'm going after work to pick up a D300. I been thinking about this for a few months and can't seem to talk myself out of it. Im just going to bite the bullit and free my mind of this mental debate. lol. Im going from a great 40Dx to a D300. I have pretty good glass so it should be a good match with this camera. I wonder if I can get a good deal if I beg in person but maybe not.
