    I sold my D90 and picked up a D300s yesterday. I mainly upgraded for two reasons; the increased AF performance, and the faster shutter speeds. Yes, believe it or not there were many times when shooting with my lenses wide open outside, that 1/4000 was not fast enough. I am thinking about exchanging it for the D700, but I might hold out and get a new lens instead. Anyway, I like it so far. The AF is way faster, and more accurate. I noticed that it focuses far better with my 50mm @ 1.4 then the D90 did.

    What were you trying to capture that won't be focused even at 1/4000?

    It's not focus that's a problem, it's exposure. When using aperture's of 1.4, outside, 1/4000 isn't often times fast enough to expose the subject/background properly.

    When you want to control the available light outside, on lets say a bright sunny day, having the ability to go up to 1/8000 will let you bring the ambient down, while you use flash to properly expose your subject(s).

    Is it a huge benefit? Depends on where you shoot, but most people will probably use it seldomly.

    You know that you could have achieved that easily with an ND filter, right? ;)
